Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest LIVE The FA Youth Cup final points out how Garnacho scored the winner

Manchester United have confirmed that the audience for the FA Youth Cup final will be sold out at Old Trafford.

United’s U18 hosts Nottingham Forest on Wednesday night, and the club’s youngsters will play in front of the full capacity of Old Trafford as they battle to win the Youth Cup. More than 70,000 tickets were sold for the match, including 6,000 visiting fans.

United want to win the Youth Cup for the first time since 2011. Paul PogbaJesse Lingard and Ravel Morrison have performed on that side, but the club’s newest youngsters, Alejandro Garnacho, Kobbie Mainoo, Dan Gore and Charlie McNeill, now want to expand United’s rich history in the prestigious competition following an unforgettable campaign led by manager Travis Binnion.

The Reds won Youth Cup (10) more times than any club and will bid to extend that record.

It was a miserable season at United, and the youngsters were the only positive ones.

OPPORTUNITY!

United should have a third. Garnacho breaks with speed, but has only eyes for goal as he flashes over the crossbar. If he had passed by his side, he would have secured the trophy.

Eight minutes was added

Wow, there’s a little time left to play.

Garnacho covers in style

Never a penalty, but what a cool ending.

Garnacho didn’t do much tonight, but he managed to score a penalty and then finished it with ease.

PENALTY FOR UNITED!

PENALTY FOR UNITED!

Garnacho is down.

However, it was not a penalty, it was out of the box – a bad decision.

Stretford End find your voice

United are enjoying the best spell of the second half, and the Stretford End is finding its voice again. Fifteen minutes remained and it was evenly distributed. A goal would get this for both sides, if not, we have overtime and maybe penalties.

20 minutes to here

Forest have a player down because of cramps.

McNeill was not happy to be gone

Charlie McNeill talks to Travis Binnion as he is replaced by Joe Hugill. He didn’t look happy about it, but he was almost out of the game tonight.

64 ‘- MUN 1-1 NOSteven Railston

United made a double change

McNeill and Hansen left.

Hugill and Oyedele on.

61 ‘- MUN 1-1 NOSamuel Luckhurst

United faded after a great start

United have been pretty aimless for most of this and are preparing a change or changes below us. They intentionally started this half, but Forest passed it with minimal crowds, and Gore and Mainoo didn’t have enough time on the ball to control the game.

57 ‘- MUN 1-1 NOSteven Railston

This match could go to penalties

He has to be a winner tonight.

There could be overtime and penalty kicks if the result stays the same.

OPPORTUNITY!

Chance for Forest, but Bennett blocks it.

This was great magic

Really good magic for United in the last few minutes. They have so many talented young players that there is always a chance to score from nothing.

49 ‘- MUN 1-1 NOSteven Railston

This is better than United

This is better than United, who started the second half well.

McNeill was just gesturing to the crowd for more noise.

Vitek continued

It was a worrying blow for Vitek’s goalkeeper, but it’s okay for him to continue. Wooster was about to enter just in case.

Brave start from Vitek

After making a mistake for the goal, Vitek knelt in the face with a brave defense.

We set off again

Let’s go.

Day Up

Super recovery. 7

Isaac Hansen

He committed several offenses with smart runs, including a free kick for the opening goal. 6

Alejandro Garnacho

Energetic, but with little end product. It closed several times before the break. 7

Sam Mather

Lively whenever he came on the ball. 6

Charlie McNeill

Gradually grew into a game. 6

HALF TIME

It’s a whistle for a break.

44 ‘- MUN 1-1 NOSamuel Luckhurst

It’s hard not to feel for Vitek

These are two goalkeeping mistakes. It’s hard not to feel for Vitek. Several of his teammates cheered him on and the only good thing is that half time is inevitable. It will take time-out for him to overcome this.

He just rushed out of his goal to kick the ball, but is still burying his head in his hands.

Garnacho’s effort simply goes wide.

He just didn’t wrap the ball around the ball enough.
