Right after two minutes in the game, Solskjaer’s side faced an unfortunate own goal from winger Luke Shaw.
Although, it did not take long for United to set things on level. A sublime corner kick from Juan Mata met Harry Maguire’s directional header into the far post.
Furthermore, Bruno Fernandes missed a golden opportunity to take the lead in the 58th minute. Subsequently, stopper Karl Darlow got the best of the Portugal playmaker to make a brilliant save.
