Anthony Martial celebrates scoring first goal of Sevilla loan spell, Amad unused sub in big Rangers win
Anthony Martial has scored the first goal of his Sevilla loan spell, in just his third match.
Martial struck to put Sevilla 3-1 up just before half-time in their Europa League clash against Dinamo Zagreb.
For the first time Martial was lining up as a central striker, having played his first two games for Sevilla on the left wing.
Martial finished off a slick counter-attacking move, passing the ball into the back of the net from the right side of the penalty box.
He wheeled away in celebration in clear delight. Zagreb had equalised in the 41st minute before two Sevilla goals saw the Spanish side end the half strongly.
The goal came with Martial’s second shot of the game and he was thrilled to score, running towards the stands to celebrate in front of Sevilla supporters for the first time.
The goal was Martial’s first goal since his one and only strike for Manchester United this season, against Everton back in early October.
Amad’s Rangers enjoy huge night
Another Manchester United loanee involved in the Europa League this evening was Amad, although he did not play.
Amad was an unused substitute as Rangers recorded one of their best ever European results by winning 4-2 away at Borussia Dortmund.
The winger will hope to play more of a role at Ibrox in the second leg. Amad has one goal and one assist in four appearances for the club to date.
While not ideal that he did not feature, from a United perspective, being in the Rangers squad for such a big win will be a memorable moment for him.
