Casemiro opened the scoring for Manchester United in the 33rd minute with a header from Luke Shaw’s free kick.

Rashford’s effort deflected off Sven Botman to sail into the net for the second goal which was given credited as an own goal to the Newcastle defender.

The organisers of the competition have announced that the goal has  been credited to Marcus Rashford.
