With this goal, Rushford must have been the biggest contributor to Uniteds game, but Rushfords performance today is both love and hate, because he wasted many counter attack opportunities before the goal. In the 47th minute, Manchester United hit back 2-1, Rushford took the ball forward, he could break through by himself or pass the ball to Machar, but his pass was far away from machal, closer to the defensive player, and was cleared by the defensive player; in the 58th minute, Rushford went over kimpenbe and went into the forbidden area with a single knife, but he adjusted a little bit in the forbidden area, and Pereira, who was back on defense, shoved the ball out of the baseline; the 60th point Zhong, b-fernandezs long pass, the unguarded Rushford volleys a missed volley from 16 yards on the right flank; in the 80th minute, United counterattack, b-fernandezs right rib cross in the restricted area is blocked, and the unarmed Rushfords strong shot at 18 yards is too positive to be saved by Navas.
Manchester United used 532 formation most of the time today, and the tactics were very clear. The attack of Paris Saint Germain at home was in line with the tactical needs of Manchester United. Rushford got a lot of counter attack opportunities, but Rushfords counterattack efficiency was really low. If he didnt have a brilliant goal at the last moment, he would certainly be criticized after the game. Rushfords waste of opportunities is an old problem, which has been a frequent occurrence in the manager of Manchester United and has not changed since then. But in any case, goals and helping the team to get three points are the hard truth, and Rushfords recent state is very good, the last league, Rushford played center contributed a goal, two assists to help United win Newcastle 4-1.
At the beginning of todays 532 formation, Rushford also played as a center, but after bogbas 67th minute substitution, Uniteds formation changed to 4231, and Rushford changed to play his unfamiliar right wing. As we all know, Manchester United are short of right wingers, but they have not been recruited in this summer. Rushford has scored on the right wing this game, which may be another choice for united in this position.
