Manchester United’s U19s started our UEFA Youth League campaign with a 1-0 win at Young Boys.
The competition was cancelled last tern due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it’s great to have it back with United involved and starting their campaign with a victory as Teden Mengi captained the side.
Shola Shoretire scored the only goal of the game in the first-half and it was enough to secure the win.
He managed to find the net from close range and it proved to be the game’s only goal.
FT: Young Boys U19 0 #MUFC U19s 1 – Shola Shoretire’s early goal the difference in a scrappy game. United had to dig deep at times & struggled to create much going forwards in the UEFA Youth League opener. Jurado & Fernandez look promising pic.twitter.com/pm8tbmB1VS

Unfortunately, the match was not shown live on MUTV, which is a real annoyance for those of us who like to keep up to date with the youth teams.
