Manchester United have got their maiden win of the UEFA Europa League season against the Sheriff Tiraspol Club. The match took place on Thursday. The Red Devils vanquished Sheriff Tiraspol in a game that was not a home game for Manchester United. Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo were able to score the goals in the first half of the game.
When the halftime whistle blew and when the break was given, Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored his first goal of this UEFA Europa League season, outrightly refused to get a picture taken with a fan while he was going into the change room. In a video that has gone viral, a fan approached the Manchester United great for a picture but was given a cold shoulder by the star attacker with a gentle tap on her back.

Manchester United have been up and down in the Premier League and the same form seems to have followed them into the Europa League where they went down to the Spanish club Real Sociedad in the game that happened a week earlier at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils found their straps in the game against Sheriff Tiraspol and they were right on the money. They played good football as a unit and put up a neat performance as a side. It all started when Jadon Sancho scored a superb goal during the 17th minute to give the Men from Old Trafford a lead early on in the encounter. Ronaldo looked in good touch in the game as he produced a good spot kick which produced the second goal.
The two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho gave a breath of fresh air for the side which was managed under Eric Ten Hag. After attacking early and making the right moves in the early stages of the game, they got the goals needed and did well right through the match.
