Lukaku ends goal drought as Man Utd win group

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku

Manchester United reached the Champions League knockout stage for the first time since 2014 by coming from behind to beat CSKA Moscow.

Victory at Old Trafford allowed Jose Mourinho's side to top Group A ahead of second-placed Basel with 15 points from their six games.

The Russian side had taken the lead with a controversial goal on the stroke of half time as Vitinho's shot was diverted into the net by Alan Dzagoev, although the forward was standing in an offside position.

Despite conceding, the hosts were on top throughout and could have gone in front within four minutes but Marcus Rashford scuffed a shot against the post following Romelu Lukaku's through ball.

However, the United forward pair did score in quick succession in the second half to turn the match around.

Striker Lukaku stretched out a leg to poke home his 13th of the season from Paul Pogba's pass on 64 minutes and Rashford stroked in just two minutes later.
