It happened to be the Brazilian kid who only played half an hour but his fabulous strike in the 90th minute galvanised United and it has obviously impressed you with 50% of the votes going to the latest youngster to shine for the Red Devils.

There was praise galore on the forum for the Brazilian as well, Sparky's Shorts tipping him for the first team soon . "The up side is Rafael continues his progress towards becoming a 1st team regular cementing his promise with a superbly taken left foot volley after controlling it on his chest - not bad for a right back."

The performance didn't go un-noticed by Fergie either with the manager praising the right back.

 "The boy's such a gutsy character, and he's got such talent," Sir Alex told MUTV. "He's got great courage to play.

"He's got the Brazilian mentality of 'give me the ball, I want to play', and every time we get the ball, he wants the ball. It's a great attribute to have for such a young kid," he said.
