Football fan has set Marcus Rashford's winning penalty vs PSG to Titanic music


Marcus Rashford had ice running through his veins when he sent Manchester United into the final eight of the Champions League.

Although the forward has far more experience than most footballers his age, he still showed composure beyond his years to eliminate Paris Saint-Germain from the penalty spot.

It was a historic night at the Parc des Princes, with United vying to become the first team in the history of Europe's top competition to come back from a 2-0 defeat at home.

However, Romelu Lukaku gave the Red Devils hope from the outset, scoring either side of an initially devastating goal from Juan Bernat.

The home side seemed to muffle their opponents during the second-half, though, and Kylian Mbappe spurned a major one-on-one opportunity during the closing moments.

Rashford scores the winner

That gave United just enough hope to launch one final attack and they won themselves a penalty when Presnel Kimpembe blocked an ambitious Diogo Dalot shot with his arm.

It was a controversial decision, but the referee decided to award the spot kick after calling upon help from VAR (video-assistant-referee).

At the age of just 20, Rashford was consequently staring at the opportunity to send United into the final eight but one of the greatest goalkeepers in history was standing in his way. 


Even better with Titanic music

Of course, he made no mistake, striking the ball cleanly and finding the top left corner.

It was a moment that sent United fans around the country into delirium as well as prompting some partisan Instagram stories from his injured teammates.

It makes you wonder: how could that goal get any better?

Titanic music. That's right, when it comes to any dramatic goal in football, you can guarantee that somebody will dub Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On' over the footage.

Well, Rashford's winning penalty is no different and it certainly raises the remarkable moment to an extra level of jubilation.

It's no wonder the edit has amassed thousands of retweets already - take a look down below:  

And the Oscar for best short film goes to...

There was plenty of passionate reaction in amongst the comments, ranging from 'I have in tears in my eyes' to 'I can't stop crying.'

You can forgive United fans for indulging in the victory this week, it marked the high point of their season and surely gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the job on a permanent basis.

It wasn't just a comeback from the Red Devils, it was a historic achievement and they'll be hoping to push beyond the quarter-finals before the season is out.

United have looked an entirely new team since the departure of Jose Mourinho and have the opportunity to win two trophies, as well as hauling themselves into the top four.

All those achievements would have seemed impossible just three months ago, but the club has an incredible spirit that's reaping results.

Fans will be hoping for plenty more Titanic-worthy moments before May comes around.
