Rafael scored an incredible goal tonight for Manchester United’s U21s with a left footed strike from well outside the box.
The Brazilian right-back took a quick look up to see Tottenham’s goalkeeper off the line and sent in a perfect effort which gave him no chance.
For a player who is a defender by trade, it’s a reminder of Rafael’s attacking credentials at a time where he has been left out of Man United’s side by Louis van Gaal.

For a player who has been forced to sit on the sidelines whilst Antonio Valencia continues to get game time with the first-team, Rafael will be delighted with his effort.
We’ll be bringing you a report on Rafael’s overall performance against Spurs’ U21s and why he absolutely deserves to start for Man United this weekend.
