Manchester United -3 St Etienne – 0
I was stil asleep when they were showing this match so I watched the highlights instead. What a match with a Zlatan Ibrahimovic hat-trick!
Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring when his free kick struck the St Etienne wall and deflected towards goal, leaving th St Etienne goalkeeper wrong-footed and stranded before crawling over the line.
Zlatan added a second goal in the 74th minute as Marcus Rashford shot down the left side, evading St Etienne players from the left-hand side of the penalty area. A kick to the right for Zlatan to finish…and he did. The slow-motion showed the St Etienne players shaking their heads in dismay
The third goal was a penalty a Zlatan was bought down in the box. To be honest, from what I could see, it did not seem like a penalty because Zlatan went down to slowly and easily. But the referee pointed at the spot and a penalty was given. With that, Zlatan scored his third of the night and 23rd of the season in all competitions.
A win for us. Glory Glory!
