Maguire and Onana help Man Utd win in the Champions League 1

Central defender Harry Maguire scored a header, and goalkeeper Andre Onana pushed away a penalty kick at the last second, helping Man Utd win 1-0 against Copenhagen in the Champions League.

Maguire and Onana were both the most criticized players in the first two months of Man Utd’s season, but they contributed greatly to bringing the team’s first three points in the 2023-2024 Champions League.

Maguire has been playing better over the past few weeks, even being chosen as the best player in the win over Sheffield United, but his performance today was even more impressive.

While celebrating the goal, Maguire raised his hand to make a heart symbol towards the audience, then pointed to the team logo on his chest.

Maguire was given 7.7 points by Whoscored in this match, the second highest after Onana.

The player assigned by coach Jacob Neestrup to take penalty kicks is Jordan Larsson – son of former Man Utd striker Henrik Larsson.

Man Utd players, especially McTominay, immediately ran to Onana’s side to share their joy.

Onana made mistakes in both of Man Utd’s previous matches, causing them to lose 3-4 to Bayern and 2-3 to Galatasaray.

Despite winning, Man Utd’s playing style did not improve much.

In the post-match interview, Maguire paid tribute to hero Onana, but the goalkeeper replied: `That is my duty.`
