Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford’s remarkable freekick against Chelsea on Wednesday night got a lot of fans talking, with many comparing it to those Cristiano Ronaldo made his reputation with.
The club’s Youtube channel have now released footage of the sensational strike from all camera angles so supporters can appreciate just how pinpoint-accurate the shot was:
After the match, Rashford credited the Mitre balls they use in cup competitions for doing all the work, but the sheer audacity to strike it from such long-range was simply the work of a supremely skilled player.
The 22-year-old has come in for some criticism this season, but he has really upped his game in recent weeks, and the extraordinary freekick is a timely reminder of the talent that the striker possesses.
Fans will be hoping to see more of the same from Rashford when United face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in the Premier League tomorrow lunchtime.
