Rashford free-kick gives Man Utd first-leg lead

Marcus Rashford scores for Manchester United against Celta Vigo

Marcus Rashford's superb free-kick gave Manchester United control of their Europa League semi-final against Celta Vigo.

The 19-year-old striker's curling effort not only gave United the lead, but also a precious away goal going into next Thursday's second leg at Old Trafford.

With United outside the Premier League's top four - a point behind Manchester City and four off third-placed Liverpool - the Europa League perhaps represents their best chance of earning a place in next season's Champions League.
