Video: Marcus Rashford Scores After Awful Ali Al-Habsi Mistake

Marcus Rashford got his second goal of the game as Manchester United beat Reading in the FA Cup thanks to an awful Ali Al-Habsi mistake.

The English youngster was impressive all afternoon as Jose Mourinho’s men comfortably beat their Championship opponents 4-0 to book a spot in the fourth round of the competition.

After missing some chances in the first half, Rashford got on the scoresheet in the second when he passed beyond Al-Habsi for his side’s third.

And he had another goal just minutes later when Al-Habsi struggled with a backpass and allowed the United striker to steal into to tap home from yards out:

It’s a horror mistake – and you have to wonder just what Al-Habsi is looking at angrily after Rashford smashed the ball into the net? He wasn’t seriously blaming the defender was he?

It was a dominant performance from United, who were brilliantly led by Rashford in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Wayne Rooney got their opening goal to equal Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time scoring record at the club while Anthony Martial got the second before Rashford hit twice to put the seal on the victory.
