Manchester United centre-back Lisandro Martinez was thrilled as Manchester United finished for the World Cup with a victory over Fulham.

The win came in the most dramatic of circumstances, with Alejandro Garnacho scoring a dramatic injury-time winning goal.

The victory leaves United in fifth place, ending for the break with a little momentum, bouncing back from last week’s defeat at Aston Villa.

Summer signing Martinez was thrilled to see his side keep fighting to the final whistle, in a game where the team really had to dig in.

He was presented with an Argentina flag by the away supporters at full-time, which he was grateful to receive.

United had taken the lead through Christian Eriksen in the first half, before former United winger Dan James netted a second half equaliser.

Garnacho then intervened in the 93rd minute, scoring at the same end which Cristiano Ronaldo once scored a memorable late winner at Craven Cottage.

Captain on the day Bruno Fernandes also hailed the team spirit on display, and says he is looking forward to coming back.

This might not always have been the case last season, where internationals might have been a relief for the players to escape for a bit.

Right now it feels like they are reluctant to leave, even if it is for the World Cup.
