Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay showed glimpses of what might be achieved if both players work together and share the glory on Wednesday night.
During a twenty minute spell of attacking in Manchester United's hard-fought Champions League win against VfL Wolfsburg, the pair created an array of chances that should have dismantled their opponents as early as half-time - the Red Devils should have been 3-1 up at the break.
It was reminiscent of the relationship between Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke that struck fear in teams, both in England and across Europe.

These two young stars could emulate such a partnership - but only if they learn to be selfless. Both players were completely unmarked several times during said spell and could have handed each other a goal or two, but they chose tougher options.
What a missed opportunity, even if United did triumph in the end.
The Red Devils cannot afford to have two attacking players on the pitch who are unable to convert chances, as those watching the game last night would have noticed that the missed chances could have cost them the game, with Wolfsburg threatening throughout.
The key to Cole and Yorke's success was their genuine friendship and although it's clear to see all the players at the club get along just fine, it does beg the question - do Martial and Memphis have a similar friendship?
A better use of their time over the next 48 hours might be to sit down with club legend Ryan Giggs and listen to stories about what made Cole and Yorke such a lethal pairing - get them excited; show them footage.
Above all - encourage them to really get to know each other away from football.
If these two players can develop a strong friendship and understanding, there is absolutely no doubting that they could lead United to future success - just like Cole and Yorke did all those years ago.
