Manchester United defeated Schalke 2-0 in the last Group B game in the first stage of the Mercedes Benz Junior Cup. It was an impressive victory as Schalke had won both of their opening two games.
However a draw would not have been a great result for our hopes in the competition and animated team talk from Paul McGuinness at half time boosted the U19s.
Then Marcus Rashford went on fantastic run, beat the Schalke defender and smashed the ball into the top corner.
That victory saw United take first place in Group B, ahead of Schalke 04 on goal difference. The U19s will face the third placed team of Group A later this afternoon in Group 2 of the second stage of tournament – which will either be Fenerbahce or TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
