Manchester United target Enzo Fernandez scores wondergoal for Argentina – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United target Enzo Fernandes came off the bench to score for Argentina in the World Cup group stage against Mexico.

From the corner of the Mexico penalty area, the Benfica midfielder found his chance from a short corner.

Two touches by Fernandes saw him face a defender who quickly captivated him with a stride before passing the ball into the far corner.

Guillermo Ochoa didn’t have a chance to use the power of his shot – and laser-like precision through the crowd – to make Enzo’s attack unstoppable.

It was the midfielder’s first goal for Argentina and it came at a perfect time for the Silver.

Failure to win this match would make them unlikely to advance from Group C, while a loss would see them eliminated entirely.

Enzo Fernandez’s goal gave Argentina the opener after a fine strike from Lionel Messi.

By securing the victory, Fernandes may have just kick-started his country’s World Cup revival in Qatar following their crushing defeat to Saudi Arabia in the opener.

The No. 24 only joined Benfica from River Plate in the summer but has been linked with a move to Manchester United.

Earlier this month, reports emerged that Erik ten Hag was “crazy” for the playmaker, with suggestions he could move in January.

Also in the game against Mexico was Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez.

The centre-back looked sure of possession and his defensive work was free of any mistakes from Cristian Romero, who replaced Romero after Argentina’s crushing first-game defeat.
