It has emerged that Marcus Rashford’s late 93rd minute winner against Wolves on Tuesday night is actually exactly the same as Park Ji-Sung winner vs the Wanderers from a decade ago.
Tuesday’s heroics saw Rashford collect the ball on the right-wing after it was launched forward by Bruno Fernandes, before the England international faced up Rayan Ait-Nouri on the edge of the box.
Rashford used tidy dribbling and skill to get away from his man, simultaneously creating enough space to drill the ball into the back of the net by squeezing it past three Wolves defenders.
In November of 2010, Park Ji-Sung scored in an identical manner, this time the versatile midfielder collected the ball on the right-wing after a brilliant pass from Darren Fletcher.
Park, like Rashford, drifted in from the flank, beating Wolves’ left-back with silky dribbling and skill before also squeezing the ball into the back of the net despite being crowded by three or four players.
The actual finishes also came from identical spots in the box – in between the top corner and edge of the six-yard box if you were to enter from the right-wing – with both also being left-footed strikes.
