Loads of Red Devils went wild on social media after Manchester United youth product Mason Greenwood scored a sublime finish against LASK in the Europa League last-16 tie.
Making an appearance as a substitute, Greenwood smashed in a sensational effort in the 90′ minute, becoming the youngest Red Devils player ever to score five European goals.
The 18-year-old has now played in 40 games for the United senior squad, scoring 12 goals and providing 4 assists, with 5 goals in the Premier League this season. His market value is estimated at £28.8m (Transfermarkt).
Reds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gained quite a reputation as a “super-sub” throughout his professional career, once scoring 4 times in just 10 minutes against Nottingham Forest in a legendary 8-1 victory, and if the club legend can continue to nurture the academy graduate, fans can surely expect Greenwood to keep scoring.
Unsurprisingly the England U-21 international’s incredible strike prompted plenty of crazy reactions from the Old Trafford faithful, with one supporter commenting the youngster is “better than Harry Kane.”

Got the ability to be a future legend! Scarily good for an 18 year old, 12 goals already! Our academy has been a great breeding ground for top players for a long time, and long may it continue! Producing our own that love the club and would wanna spend their career here 🇾🇪
