Marcus Rashford again showed why he is getting a lot of attention as his sensational free-kick from over 30 yards secured Manchester United a 1-0 win against Benfica in Lisbon.

After a goalless first half, Man United finally broke the deadlock from a direct free-kick. Henrik Mkhitaryan was awarded a free-kick in the 64th minute which Rashford steps forward to take.

But just as many thought he was going to cross, the youngster spots Benfica goalie Svilar off his line and curls a beauty which beats the keeper who although caught the ball, but was well behind the goal line.
