Tiger Fight, October 2nd. In the UEFA Champions League draw, Manchester United and Paris were drawn to a group, reminding many fans of the 18-19 season when the two teams met in the knockout matches. Rashford relived the moment when he scored the lore penalty on Twitter and praised Lukaku, who has now switched to Inter Milan.
Rashford wrote: "Let me tell you a little story about Lukaku. We were playing the second leg of the Champions League against Paris and the chances of qualifying were very slim because we lost 0-2 in the first leg. Just 2 minutes after the game, Lukaku scored, and in 30 minutes, Lukaku scored again. We need to score another to advance. In the 94th minute... a penalty..."
"Lukaku walked over and picked up the ball and gave it to me. He knew this was my moment. He knew that if a penalty kick was scored, it would be me who was reported by various news. He said that it didn't matter. He didn’t care that he was actually the most critical figure in that victory."
"This is Lukaku, he is a selfless, team player. Never afraid of others stealing his light, this is my brother, I admire him."
