Man Utd wins FA Youth Cup in front of record crowd

United captain Rhys Bennett’s opener was cancelled out when Joshua Powell’s shot beat Radek Vitek just before half-time.

But Travis Binnion’s team were not to be denied and Garnacho replicated Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration after firing home a penalty.

The 17-year-old netted again with deflected stoppage-time effort to seal the trophy.

He made his first-team debut last month, having starred on the run to United’s 11th FA Youth Cup triumph.

Former United manager Alex Ferguson was in the stands to cheer on the youngsters alongside ex-players Bryan Robson and Michael Carrick, as well as David de Gea, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes from Ralf Rangnick’s current squad.

A banner reading the ‘Class of 22’ was held up in the Stretford End at full-time.

Although it is too soon to compare this generation to United’s famous ‘Class of 92’ featuring David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers, for one night at least fans could dream of better days to come.
