What a great night it was for the United fans, scoring five on their first match to kick off the pre-season campaign on a high against LA Galaxy. To add on to their joy were two goals from their wonder kid Marcus Rashford who was later substituted to bring on Romelu Lukaku.
The night didn’t turn out to be that good for the £75 million striker who was on his debut. Another talking point of the match was the young Brazilian international Andreas Pereira who joined back the squad after a year long loan spell at Granada.
The Brazilian went viral after pulled off a spectacular turn during the game sending Jermaine Jones (LA Galaxy) in the wrong direction, it was one of the highlights of the match as the Reds usually expect such tricks from Pogba.
Pereira hasn’t really got much opportunity to prove himself in the senior squad even though he made his premier league debut back in March 2015. But it looks like the 2017-18 season is going to be quite fruitful for the mid-fielder after a promising performance in UCLA, where Pereira has also sported a new training number – 15.
He could become the fourth academy graduate to have their squad number bumped up by Mourinho and receive the recognition they are a full-time first-team squad member.
