With the score at 1-1, Manchester United and Anderlecht went to extra-time to have their Europa League quarterfinal tie decided, and there, it was a Marcus Rashford goal early in the second half that pushed United to the competition’s last four.
All you can do is keep trying to create chances and that is what we kept doing. We pinned them back in the second half and started pushing as a team, which is what the game needed at that time
the young England international told BT Sport after the game, talking about United’s need to persist, seeing Anderlecht level the score in the first half at 1-1.
We had a lot of chances and could have scored a lot of goals but sometimes games go like that. We got one in the end and everyone is happy now. You just have to keep going and hope you get another chance. We have done it the hard way but none of that matters now
Rashford also said. Some of the missed chances he mentioned were his, but overall the impact the youngster had on United’s win was huge, not just scoring the second goal, but also assisting Henrikh Mikhtaryan to score his own goal early in the game.
