Manchester United made the impossible possible against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday night.

Having lost the first leg 2-0 at home, the Red Devils needed to produce something special at the Parc des Princes.

And that's exactly what they did.

Romelu Lukaku's brace and Marcus Rashford's controversial late penalty made it 3-1 United on the night and 3-3 on aggregate to fire them into the quarter-finals.

No one gave United a chance of turning the tie around, yet they defended valiantly and took their chances when they came.

As for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, there's surely no question now that the Norwegian will be made permanent manager before the end of the season.

Despite being without Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic through injury and suspension, Solskjaer worked his magic to seal a famous victory.

United were somewhat fortunate to be awarded a last-minute penalty after the ball struck Presnel Kimpembe's arm inside the box, but there was nothing fortunate about Rashford's penalty.

Rashford - who had never taken a penalty for United prior to Wednesday night - made no mistake by lashing the ball above Gianluigi Buffon.

Cue hysteria as Rashford and his teammates ran to the corner flag to celebrate with United's travelling fans.

Incredible footage from the side of the pitch has now emerged of Rashford scoring his penalty and United players celebrating wildly in the corner afterwards. Check it out.

"Yesss! Come on! Come on!" shouted the likes of Luke Shaw and Scott Tominay, who could hardly believe what had just happened.

United's comeback and victory over PSG will live long in the memory for the club's fans, who must now wait with bated breath to find out who they face in the quarter-finals.
