Harry Maguire and Andre Onana receive standing ovation from Man United fans after Champions League heroics

Andre Onana and Harry Maguire received a standing ovation as they left the pitch following Manchester United's crucial win over Copenhagen in the Champions League.

Man United secured their first points of this season's Champions League campaign as they beat Copenhagen 1-0 on Tuesday.

Harry Maguire headed home in the 72nd minute, with the Red Devils conceding a penalty deep, deep into stoppage time after Scott McTominay's clumsy tackle.

But McTominay's blushes were spared as Onana produced a heroic save to deny Jordan Larsson from the spot.

He stopped his effort with a big right hand as he redeemed himself following his mistakes earlier in the competition against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray.

Maguire and Onana both left the field at the same time after speaking to TNT Sports.

And as they headed down the tunnel, a joyous Stretford End gave the Man United heroes a rousing reception. Check it out below:

On his penalty save, Onana said: "Just doing my job."

He added: "We are Manchester United, a very big club, I have no doubt we'll make it [out of the Champions League group]."

The England defender added: "Incredible. We've got to be more clinical and get that second. The first half was really poor but we came out in the second half a lot better.

"I'm really proud and pleased with the way I've acted over the last 6-12 months," he said.

"I've been given an opportunity now and I just want to be here to help the team and get this club back to where it should be."

Man United sit in third place in Group A, with three points on the board - one point behind second-placed Galatasaray.

Will they progress to the knockout stage? Let us know what you think.
