Man Utd loanee Facundo Pellistri beat four players to set up assist during Uruguay tie vs Venezuela

Manchester United forward Facundo Pellistri made a stunning run to set up a goal during a Uruguay vs Venezuela World Cup Qualifier on Wednesday.

The Man United star, who is currently on loan with Deportivo Alaves, started for Uruguay alongside Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani and impressed against Venezuela.

Bentacur, who recently joined Tottenham, had opened the scoring in the first minute of the game.

Midway through the first half, Pellistri made a superb run through the right wing, did the hardest job by getting passed four players and De Arrascaeta needed just a touch to Pellistri’s cross to double Uruguay’s lead.

Edinson Cavani would score in the last seconds of the first half.

The final score for the World Cup Qualifier was 4-1 in favor of Uruguay.

After the game, Facundo Pellistri took to Twitter to react to his country’s win over Venezuela.

Pellistri said: “LET’S GO!! 👊🏼

“Very proud to represent my country once again. I am living a dream and that is how I will remember it for the rest of my life.
