Manchester United are closer to achieving their dream of winning the Europa League this season, after edging FC Copenhagen 1-0 on Monday night.

Bruno Fernandes was the hero of the match, after converting from the penalty spot, in the 95th minute, following a foul on Anthony Martial.

The German side fought hard to deny the Red Devils victory, while causing problems of their own, but ultimately, United went through to the semi-finals of the competition.

Players and the coaching staff will be excited about the prospects of the club winning its first trophy under Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, having watched the Norwegian guide the team to a third place finish in the Premier League last season.
