“They say Sevilla never surrender…” This is what their anthem reminds, and it came true last night. The Spanish team came back after surviving to United´s siege at the start of the second half. Bounou was the hero with his multiple saves.
The English squad scored the first goal in the 9th minute thanks to a penalty kick taken by Bruno Fernandes (a specialist from the penalty spot). However, Julen Lopetegui´s players knew to take advantage of United´s weakest side to get the equalizer, their left wing.
Due to Luke Shaw´s absence, Brandon Williams (19 years old) started as a left back. His lack of focus on marking Suso allowed him to drive comfortably and score the equalizer. United´s young academy player was the responsible, but their fans should forgive his lack of experience.
The one that will not be forgiven is Victor Lindelöf (26 years old). Navas managed to send a perfect cross to Luuk de Jong from the rigth, and the forward did not miss the chance to score the winning goal. It was Swedish central defender the one to disregard his mark. Unforgivable.
Another red devil that did not have his best night was Marcus Rashford. His poor performance hd nothing to do with what anyone expects from him as the star he is. Maybe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have put in the pitch Daniel James way before the 87th minute. Actually, all the substitutions could have been made before.
It is well known that this is Sevilla´s competition. The way to resist and suffer, to not give up when the opponent is pressing you in your box, and even find the winning goal. They say Sevilla never surrender, and now they only have 90 minutes left to resist in order to lift their sixth UEFA Europa League.
