Cristiano Ronaldo could have scored what Marcus Rashford missed vs Newcastle United - fan claims

A Manchester United fan has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo could have scored the late chance Marcus Rashford missed against Newcastle United.

Man United boss hauled off Ronaldo late in the game for Rashford in search for a breakthrough.

The England international created a sitter for Fred after he ran past Nick Pope and squared it to Fred, who couldn’t convert from inside the penalty box.

In the injury time, Casemiro lofted the ball into the penalty box using the outside of his boot and Marcus Rashford got on the end of the cross with a header but his effort wasn’t good enough, given he was in a goalscoring position.

His miss has sparked ideas that Cristiano Ronaldo would have scored from there if Ten Hag hadn’t hauled him off.

The tie was forced to settle in a draw and United will look to bounce back to winning ways next week against Tottenham at Old Trafford.
