We are seeing lots of Brazilian flair at Old Trafford tonight.
Fred’s goal stands despite a check from VAR as Manchester United hold a 3-0 lead over Reading in the FA Cup fourth round.
Casemiro opened the scoring before completing a brace — but it was Fred, who came off the bench to make it 3-0.
Bruno Fernandes sent a low cross into the box, only for Fred to backheel it past the goalkeeper and into the net.
The Brazilians are running the show tonight! 🇧🇷

The midfielder didn’t feature very often during the first half of the season, but he has made several positive contributions since the World Cup. Long way it continue.
United are now well on course to qualify for the fifth round of the FA Cup after sweeping aside a rather poor Championship side.
Paul Ince has a lot of work to do with that group of players!
