Watch: Manchester United 1-1 Middlesbrough (7-8 on pens) | Match Highlights | FA Cup | Ronaldo Penalty Miss, Fernandes misses the open goal
Manchester United collapsed from the FA Cup on Friday night losing to Middlesbrough on penalties and you can watch the game highlights here.
In truth, Ralf Rangnick’s side have only themselves to blame after missing a number of clean chances with Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes the worst offenders.
After Paul Pogba was fouled in the box, the Manchester United number seven stepped in but saw his penalty miss the target in the 20th minute.
United took the lead through Jadon Sancho’s deflected goal five minutes later but were detained by a controversial 64th-minute goal from Matt Crooks.
As the ball was crossed into United’s penalty area, the ball clearly hit Duncan Watmore’s hand before he played the ball into the goal for Crooks to head home.
Despite protests, the handball was ruled accidental and the goal was awarded after a VAR review.
United kept pushing for a winner and after Bruno Fernandes won the ball from the edge of the penalty area, it looked like they would regain the lead.
Incredibly though, with the goal gaping, he shattered his effort against the post.
United huffed and puffed as they searched for a winner, but Chris Wilder’s side hung on as the game ended 1-1 after extra time before emerging victorious in the shootout.
Neither keeper looked like they wanted to make a save, but with Boro leading 8-7, youngster Anthony Elanga kicked over the bar.
