Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood provided a moment of magic in the Champions League draw with Young Boys.
Ralf Rangnick made 11 changes to his side for the game, which ended 1-1, but Greenwood’s opener lit up what was a drab encounter and he was arguably the only player to make a strong impression on the interim manager on Wednesday night.
Despite the result, United still topped Group F but Young Boys crashed out of the competition and failed to book a place in the Europa League.
Greenwood’s acrobatic strike against Young Boys has won UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week.

The young England forward underlined his credentials with an exceptional volleyed goal just nine minutes into the match.
Moreover, Greenwood was unlucky not to assist a second goal for United in the 34th minute when he took possession, ran down the left flank before squaring a ball for Juan Mata, but the Spaniard’s strike was met by a late Young Boys intervention.
Dean Henderson also impressed between the sticks, but he was replaced in the second half by debutant Tom Heaton.
