However, the guests managed to manage the duel at the Tottenham stadium, which was scored by Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford.

“We used more experienced players than in previous matches. We worked this tactic today,” Solskjaer said after the match.

I don’t want to offend anyone, but not wearing any symbol is a matter of personal choice for me. And I think everyone will tolerate and respect her,” explained Matic, who also played for 1. FC Košice early in his career.
