Mason Greenwood goal Vs Newcastle United: Watch Manchester United youngster scoring a thumping goal against the Magpies at the Old Trafford.
Manchester United is having a brilliant game against Newcastle United, and the heat at the Old Trafford is certainly justifying the hype around the boxing day.
Such intensity by the Red Devils should be credited to Manchester United academy youngster Mason Greenwood, who made a thumping shot to bring Manchester United back in the game.
It was in the 36th minute of the game when Newcastle United’s Fabian Schar plays a sloppy pass, which allows Greenwood to acquire the ball and dribble past ahead, the 18-year-old star then makes a thumping shot at the right place which goes directly inside the goal.
Martin Dubravka remains without a response as the ball had too much power to make it stop. Meanwhile, the ball got a slight deflection which made it even more difficult for Dubravka but the goal remains with Greenwood.
