Marcus Rashford scored a stunning free-kick to hand Manchester United a decisive one-goal lead in their Europa League semifinal against Celta Vigo.

Manchester United were the better of the two sides throughout the match as they created several clear cut goalscoring opportunities. But, as has been the case this season, they weren’t clinical enough to convert those chances to grab a tie-clinching lead.

As the match wore on, it was looking increasingly likely that it would take a special effort to break the deadlock and that is exactly what happened. Midway through the second-half Manchester United won a free kick on the edge of the Celta Vigo box which Rashford curled in superbly past Sergio Alvarez.

That goal gave Manchester United a one-goal lead in the tie and, more crucially, a vital away goal heading into the second leg next week. Here are the best tweets that emerged in the aftermath of Manchester United’s win on Thursday.
