Amad Diallo made history as he became Manchester United’s fourth ever youngest European scorer.

Amad’s goal was his first in a United shirt, and only George Best, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood have been younger than him and scored in a competitive European game.

The goal gave United a lead, which was squandered in injury time as Simon Kjaer scored a late equaliser and away goal.

Amad sent a message after the game, showing he is ready to ‘fight’ in the second leg.

Amad will really feel like part of the first team now and his words show it.

He will almost certainly be involved at the San Siro one way or another, with injuries piling up.

The 18-year-old was a half-time substitute for Anthony Martial and made an instant impact.


Amad took just four minutes to score. It was a terrific header, with the teenager adjusting to receive the ball with his back to goal and turn to loop the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.

The pass from Bruno Fernandes was great too, and Amad applied a finish worthy of it.

There is a very good chance Amad will make his Premier League debut at the weekend too. It has been a long time coming.

Just like against Milan, United will probably need him.
