Wayne Rooney scored an injury-time penalty for Manchester United after Dean Hammond’s foul on Memphis Depay in the 18 space during Man U’s FA Cup third-round tie against Sheffield United at Old Trafford.
I must say that Wayne Rooney’s stoppage-time penalty spared Manchester United from an embarrassing goalless draw as we edged third-tier Sheffield United 1-0 in the FA Cup third round.
manutd.com reported as follows: “Manchester United booked a spot in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round in dramatic fashion thanks to Wayne Rooney’s injury-time winner against Sheffield United.”
Louis van Gaal’s men dominated the 90 minutes game but, up until added time, the Red Devils could not find a way past the dogged League One side who defended resolutely but rarely ventured over the half-way line.
What a relief!!!
