Before we finally shift our focus to the return of club football, before the tension of another fast and furious season kicks in, here are five things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from United's representatives in the Russia 2018 World Cup.
1. DE GEA'S MEMORY CARD FULL
In an unfortunate turn of events, David 'Osinachi' De Gea ruined his chances of being named Goalkeeper of the Year with his performances for Spain at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The 'Igwe' of goalkeepers, English Premier League chapter faced 12 shots(including penalties) at the World Cup and saved just 1.
Could it be that he saved too much shots for Manchester United during the past season?
Could it be that his memory card for saving shots is full?
Whatever be the case, we wish him safe journey back to Manchester and we hope he has formatted that memory card in preparation for the new season.
Still our number one!
2. POGBA DESERVES SOME ACCOLADES

Serie A winner (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016)

PLUS WORLD CUP
Kudos to Paul 'Ikenna' Pogba, for locking away all the unjustified criticisms that come his way to lead France to World Cup glory.
3. ROMELU 'TIMAYA' LUKAKU PROVES HIMSELF ON THE WORLD STAGE
The Belgian powerhouse moved a further step in putting his 'bad bele' doubters to shame with an exquisite world cup campaign.
The Manchester United number 9 led from the front with his 4 clinical goals, helping Belgium finish top of Group F above England. His most eye catching display saw him lead The Red Devils to victory against Brazil, spiced by a FANTA-bulous one-man-counter attack move to assist Kevin De Bruyne for Belgium's winner.
The 24 year old is now Belgium's record goal scorer in International competitions, and has also consolidated his stance as Belgium's record goalscorer of all time. Three 'Gboza' for him!
4. WHY 'OGA FELA' IS MOURINHO'S FIRST SON
Despite calls from a huge section of the United faithful for Fellaini to be released as soon as his contract expired on June 31st, news of Fellaini's contract extension broke the heart of many United fans who were eager to see the 'head banger' leave.
The Belgian however took his time to show why he is José 'Uchenna' Mourinho's favorite plan B, by inspiring Belgium to a 3-2 comeback victory against Japan with his physical presence, and usual headed goal after coming off the bench.
His heroics saw him named in the starting line-up against Brazil, where he showed once again his effectiveness, neutralising the threat of Neymar alongside Thomas Meunier to see Belgium move on to the semi-finals for the first time since 1986.
5. JESSE 'AWILO' LINGARD SHOWS MARTIAL THE WAY
As at this time last year, our very own Jesse 'Awilo' Lingard was only known for being the 'Commissioner of Dance Affairs' at United.
Despite uncertainties about his particular talents, the midfielder not only got a call up to represent his country at the world cup, but also earned himself a regular starting XI role in the team...all thanks to his hardwork at club level in the 2017/2018 campaign.
We hope Anthony 'Ikechukwu' Martial learned that football benefits require more than just talent and uses his France axe as a motivation to get a fantastic season under his belt.
IN THE END, it was a fantastic world cup experience for the Red Devils. Special Kudos to dressing room DJ Ashley Young for his exploits with England, our 'Jollof' defender Victor Lindelof and all other United players who did us proud at the World Cup.
Who was your best United player at the World Cup?
Let's have your thoughts.
GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.
