Amad Diallo making an appearance for Man United

Amad Diallo came clutch when it mattered the most after he scored a freekick deep in added time as Ivory Coast came from a goal down to beat Burkina Faso 2-1 at the Stade Olympique d’Ebimpe in northern Abidjan.

With the home side trailing by a goal, the Manchester United forward made only his second senior appearance for his national side when he was substituted in during the second half.

The Ivorians soon equalised and the score remained 1-1 until the 18-year-old stepped on to take a 97th-minute freekick. Despite it being a friendly, the pressure was high as it was possibly the last kick of the game.
