Jadon Sancho gives Manchester United 1-0 lead vs Middlesbrough with superb strike

Manchester United are in charge of the game against Middlesbrough after Jadon Sancho scored the opener with a superb strike.

Sancho had had his strike denied by the crossbar, what would have been an early lead for Man United.

Cristiano Ronaldo came close to opening the scoring as well but his acrobatic effort lacked force and was embarrassing saved by Boro’s goalie, who didn’t work well enough.

Paul Pogba was fouled inside the penalty box and a penalty was given to Manchester United.

Ronaldo took the duty but failed to hit the target. He couldn’t believe it and Pogba had to console the Portuguese legend. Watch his penalty miss here.

After 25 minutes of action, the breakthrough finally came and it was their summer signing, Sancho, whose strike down the right wing was strong enough to get past Boro’s goalie.

Manchester United 1-0 Middlesbrough. FA Cup fourth round.
