After what seemed like an endless wait, and not just the penalty kicks, Villarreal finally wins their first major trophy.
Mouthpiece NGR understands that Manchester United had been without trophy since last 4years. The trophy drought continues as Unai Emery boys won 2020/2021 Europa League through penalty shootout.
It was a nervy football match between the yellow submarines and the red devils. Both teams approached the game with lots of anticipation but Villareal took the lead in the 29th minute, through Gerard Moreno.
Manchester United though down by a lone goal were not able to create enough chances to level up before halftime.
It wasn’t until the 56th minute that Manchester United broke the jinx through Uruguay striker, Edison Cavani. A deflected shot from Rashford fell on the feet of Cavani, who poked home to equalise.
The match had little or nothing after the equaliser. The full time was played out 1-1 draw, and continued through the extra 30mins.
The real drama was during the penalty kick. Both teams exhausted their 11 players during the penalty kick until David De Gea stepped up to take the last kick for Manchester United.
The Spanish goalkeeper directed a low shot to the right but the young Spanish goalkeeper in goal for Villareal, Ruui did his best to keep out the ball from hitting the back of the net.
