UEFA Champions League 2020/21 draws were announced yesterday and following the news, Marcus Rashford came forward to share an incredible and heart touching story about Romelu Lukaku via twitter.

Most footballing encounters become a kind of fuzzy backdrop in our minds once the 90 minutes of action is over. But rarely, very rarely comes a match which shuns our beliefs about the limits of football. The ones which make our minds stunned.The likes of which ruin the careers of even great and make the rookies heroes for eons to come. This is the story of one such game.

It was the round of 16 fixture of the 2018/19 Champions League and Man U were heading into the 2nd leg having been thoroughly outclassed by PSG in a 0-2 loss at home. But what followed in the 2nd leg was just surreal and remains one of the most iconic Man U moments in the post-Ferguson era.

Selfless, a team player-

Manchester United have been drawn with PSG in group H, which with the presence of RB Leipzig has turned into a group of death of sorts.

Following the draws,  Marcus Rashford came forward to tweet a story about that epic night.

Let me tell you a little story about @RomeluLukaku9,” Rashford began.

“We are playing PSG in the second leg of the Champions League, with little hope of qualifying. 2-0 down on agg. 2 mins in, Rom scores. 30 mins in, Rom scores. We need one more goal to qualify. 94th min – penalty…

Rom steps up picks up the ball and hands it to me. He knew this was my moment. He knew it would be me that got all news coverage for scoring that penalty and he was ok with that, ignoring the fact that he was the most instrumental part of that win.

“That tells you all you need to know about @RomeluLukaku9. Selfless, a team player… Never afraid to dim his light for others to shine. That’s my brother and I appreciate him.”



The entire thread brings to the light the little moments, the seemingly small sacrifices that change the course of a fixture, the course of history itself.

Romelu Lukaku, who is as of now plying his trade with Inter Milan also came forward to congratulate his former teammate for that incredible game and the unforgettable memories associated with it.


Rashford vs PSG, CR7 vs Lionel Messi-

The coming Champions League season for sure promises to be the one to remember for the ages and not in the least because Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are once again set to lock horns after a 2-year hiatus.

The fact that both the legends are now at the fag end of their career only suggests that these moments will be few and far means that the game would surely be one to cherish for ages to come.

On the other hand, Rashford would get to relive his 2018/19 season when Manchester United take on PSG, in a potential group of death.
