The goal was a brilliant solo effort in which the 17 year old feinted to the right and left to leave his defender standing, before he slotted it coolly under the keeper.

Garnacho has now scored four goals in four games in the tournament, a fact which he proudly proclaimed on Twitter.

He also notched two against France despite his side losing 6-2, one of which was a stunning free kick from outside the box.

United captured the exciting left winger from Atletico Madrid in September 2020 despite competition from Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
Garnacho played 32 times for United’s academy sides last term, bagging 14 goals and six assists. Seven of the goals came in just six games in United’s triumphant Youth Cup run.
He has already made his Premier League debut for the Red Devils, playing just a minute of their 1-1 draw with Chelsea in April.
He followed that up with 11 minutes in the final match of the season against Crystal Palace.
The Argentinian turns 18 next month and incoming United manager Erik ten Hag is likely to take a look at him during pre-season to decide whether he thinks he is ready to take the step up to the first team squad next term.
