Casemiro secured Manchester United’s cup quarter-final against Liverpool – Dagsavisen

League leaders Liverpool, who beat Southampton 3-0 on Wednesday, await in the quarter-finals.

The United game was not decided until the last minute of regular time. On a free kick from Bruno Fernandes, Casemiro headed the ball into the goal. The VAR team had to act when there was a suspicion of offside ahead of the goal, but it was approved.

Five minutes were added, but due to the VAR assessment of the goal and another VAR situation in connection with a confrontation between Felipe and Fernandes, additional time was added. Only when the clock had passed 100 minutes did referee Christopher Kavanagh call off the match.

– Right moment

– We scored at the right moment. After five or six minutes in the second half, we found the game. After that we were constantly in the team’s half and took control of the game. But before that we had to make some changes. The routines fell away, said coach Erik ten Hag BBC One.

– Casemiro is very good at timing everything. He is a smart player. He has done this a few times in his career. It was a perfect pass from Bruno Fernandes and a perfect execution by Casemiro, Manchester United’s Swedish defender Victor Lindelöf told the channel.

The former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes the victory on Wednesday was a good answer after the 1-2 loss against Fulham in the Premier League at the weekend.

– United lose one game, and it’s a crisis. I have seen it before, he says to the BBC.
