Pellistri showed off his fancy footwork and willingness to take players head-on in challenges, as well as picking out excellent passes to play to his teammates.

However, the former Penarol player had a rough introduction to English football on his debut as he took a two-footed challenge from Con Ouzounidis in the first half.

Speaking of the tackle after the match, United Under-23s manager Neil Wood said: "It was 'welcome to England!'

"But it was great for him to get 90 minutes on the pitch and a first taste of English football. I'm sure he can build from this experience."

Brandon Williams would link up with Pellistri in the match and the 20-year-old United left-back was impressed with the Uruguayan's performance.

"Facundo's done very well since coming in," he told the club's website.

"He doesn't speak that much English but he's learning. He'll kick on from this and I'll be here to help him if I can. I enjoyed playing with him."
