PSG 1-3 UNITED(AGG 3-3): 5 Things We Learnt From The Miracle In Paris

It was a historic European night in Paris, as Manchester United completed the 'mission impossible Season 2'. 
United became the first ever team in history to progress to the next stage of the champions league after losing at home by more than one unreplied goal.

Here are 5 things ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the miracle in Paris:

Romelu 'Timaya' Lukaku seems to have taken back his 'mandate' as the official 'Striker-in-chief' of the Manchester United army!

He also seems to love the  number 2. He has now scored 2 goals each in his last three games. Today, he had 2 shots on goal, 2 on target and 2 goals!!!

The Ivorian had a horrific game. In the first 20 minutes, he played like someone struggling with sleep after a heavy load of Naija Palmwine!!

His injury was a blessing; it was a perfect opportunity to replace him without making him feel disgraced. His removal stabilized the game. 
We hope the 'big fish'(injury) doesnt swallow him for more than three days!

The young lad deserves special kudos for a second consecutive super sub performance. Like against Southampton, he came in and made good changes in the game including winning the penalty.

Coming in for Bailly, he allowed Ashley to track the runs of Di Maria and Bernat, which sealed the leakage created by Bailly.

Looking at his 'ajebota' (soft) face, dribbling skills and good crossing abilities, could he be the answer to our right wing 'wahala'?

United played a type of football we call in Naija 'point and kill'(precision). In the entire game, we had only four shots on goal, all of them on target and scored three goals. No wastage of any sort.

We had no time for shots off target or possesion. Like the popular Naija slang, "Who possession help?".

The miracle at Parc de Princes last night was a product of a 'Fanta-bulous', 'Coke-astic' and 'Chivita-cious' team effort.

McTominay, Fred and Perreira played the games of their lives against a very experienced PSG midfield. Lindelof  was a lion with 100% tackles and aerial duels won, Luke 'Ajebota' Shaw and Ashley Young gave their all.

FINALLY, the greatest kudos goes to Rashford for having the nerve to step up to take such a penalty at such a time, in a game of such magnitude. That was bold. In Naija, we would say to such a guy, "Na Man You Be!".

Ole 'Ugonna' Solskjaer, what can we say to you?
