Manchester United have dropped to the bottom of their Champions League group after Copenhagen produced an incredible comeback to beat them 4-3 on Wednesday night.
United were flying in the first half and found themselves 2-0 up courtesy of a brace from Rasmus Hojlund against his former side.
But then it all went wrong at the end of the half. Marcus Rashford was controversially sent off for a challenge on Elias Jelert before Copenhagen scored twice through Mohamed Elyounoussi and Diogo Goncalves – the latter dispatching a penalty after Harry Maguire was penalised for handball.
10-man United were given a spot-kick of their own after the ball struck the outstretched arm of Lukas Lerager in the area from Maguire’s knockdown.
Bruno Fernandes restored United’s lead with a thumping penalty but just when it looked signed, sealed and delivered, Lerager made amends by popping up with an equaliser at the far post.
And the stunning comeback was complete three minutes before time as substitute and top scorer Roony Bardghji, just 17, popped up with the winner to secure a famous European win.
This game has everything! 🤯
