Manchester United attacker, Mason Greenwood, on Wednesday December 8, 2021, scored his first UEFA Champions League goal of this season in style against Young Boys of Switzerland with an acrobatic kick that kept fans in the Old Trafford clapping and dancing.

The goal, which was scored in the early minutes of the first-half, gave the new boss, Ralf Rangnick, plenty of food for thought after the match that ended 1-1.

The build-up to the goal was classical as Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard helped cue up the 20-year-old Greenwood for his 34th Manchester United goal. while the finish was one of the most stunning of stunners.

Played toward the left corner flag by Lingard, Shaw sliced a cross toward the penalty spot that was a little bit behind Greenwood.

The youngster made the most of it, reaching back with his left leg to spin the cross inside the near post.

The new manager, Ralf Rangnick, used the occasion to give a number of lesser-used players the chance to shine at Old Trafford.
