Bruno Fernandes produced a moment of magic to get Manchester United back into tonight's Champions League tie against Atalanta.
With the Red Devils 2-0 down heading into the second half, the Portugal international curled a beautiful through ball with the outside of his boot into the path of a gleeful Marcus Rashford.
The 23-year-old subsequently converted from a tight angle, to hand United a much-needed lifeline after a dire first period.
It was Rashford's second goal in as many games after netting what turned out to be a consultation against Leicester City last weekend.
However, the sublime assist very much stole the headlines, as you can see for yourself below.

Rashford collected the ball well, before slipping home cooly from a tight angle. It was a goal that gave the home side hope after Atalanta raced into a first-half lead.
Mario Pasalic tapped in from close range after just 15 minutes, with the away side doubling their lead on the half hour mark through defender Merih Demiral.
With United struggling to carve out chances, for the most part, but Fernandes' moment of skill proved to be a real turning point in the game.
As you can probably imagine, fans on social media were equally glowing about the star midfielder's assist.
