Casemiro scored an acrobatic scissor-kick goal to give Manchester United the lead against Bournemouth on Saturday.

He produced a moment of magic as he opened the scoring in the eighth minute in their Premier League clash.

Christian Eriksen lofted a delightful ball into the box which wasn’t properly cleared, with the Brazilian midfielder converting with a smart finish to find the back of the net.


Man United fans on social media loved Casemiro’s goal as they praised his finish at the Vitality Stadium.

One Twitter user wrote: “What a great run, and great pass.”

A second tweeted: “An absolute peach of a goal! The United way!”

A third added: “What a finish Casemiro!!!!”

A fourth said: “Coming to United has only cemented his legacy more.”

Another commented: “Casemiro world class finish. Can’t believe some people complain about him.”

Casemiro has been a revelation at Man United since his big-money move from Real Madrid last summer.

He’s starred in the middle of the park, having inspired his side to Carabao Cup triumph earlier in the campaign.

And now the 31-year-old seems to be steering his team to a top-four finish.
