During the match, Ronaldo continued to be the focus, especially in the first half of the second half, putting the ball into the net twice.

In the 54th minute, Ronaldo rushed down to the left penalty area to catch Bruno Fernandes’s pass.

In the 72nd minute, Ronaldo had to leave the field to make way for Marcus Rashford, and he seemed dissatisfied.

Ronaldo’s performance partly reflects what Man Utd showed in this match.

Rashford’s presence did not help Man Utd play better, they even faltered and did not create any more opportunities until the 88th minute. Fernandes poked Rashford through the offside trap, escaped and passed the goalkeeper.
