It was a happy outing for Manchester United at Carrow Road as they managed a straightforward 3-1 win over Norwich City on Sunday.
All of it could be summed up by one picture (see below) where the brightest lot of current Manchester United academy talents were found to be awestruck by the brilliance of their homegrown hero, Marcus Rashford.
The 21-year-old forward made the night memorable as he scored his 50th goal for The Red Devils in his 183rd club appearance.
Rashford had a golden opportunity to reach the milestone on the 29th minute when he got to take a spot kick but was denied by Tim Krul.
The redemption came only around a minute later when the England international controlled a long ball brilliantly with a magnetic touch and deposited it calmly with another stroke.
This moment of excellence brought the best reaction out of the substitutes as Mason Greenwood, Brandon Williams and James Garner applauded unequivocally from the sidelines.
Riding on their telling performances with the junior team, the young trio found their names on the team list and going by their gesture of admiration it is safe to say that they have already found their role model. It is important to mention here that Rashford himself has been a part of Manchester United’s youth academy since he was 7 years old.
Rashford finished the night with a beautiful assist to Anthony Martial.
Earlier, Scott McTominay opened the scoring for United. With this goal the iconic club became the first team to score 2000 goals in the Premier League. In the end, Onel Hernandez’ 88th minute goal only proved to be consolatory for Norwich.
