Teenager Mason Greenwood’s first senior goal ensured Manchester United made a winning start to their Europa League campaign against Astana at Old Trafford.

On a night the 17-year-old will never forget, Greenwood produced a clever finish in front of the Stretford End after the visitors from Kazakhstan were threatening to hold out for a draw.

Brazil midfielder Fred hit the bar from 25 yards before forcing a fine save from a free-kick, while England forward Marcus Rashford wasted a string of chances against the European minnows, who did not register a shot on target.

But frustration turned to celebration when Greenwood, who has been at United since the age of six, popped up with the winner.

Diogo Dalot blazed over from close range after Nenad Eric had kept out substitute Jesse Lingard’s thunderous attempt.
