While Ashley Young spent his Saturday in Celtic Park playing for the Stiliyan Petrov XI, the man who first took his place at Manchester United, and now with England, has been making his mark on the UEFA Nations League. Setting up his side's opening goal against Spain, Luke Shaw is well on the road to reaching his promised form.
With Jose Mourinho looking on from the stands in Wembley, the ball arrived at Shaw's foot just a short distance inside the Spanish half.
Exploiting the space that Luis Enrique's side had vacated, Shaw charged at a back-tracking Dani Carvajal. While the Real Madrid full-back perhaps reckoned he had marked off sufficient space to limit Shaw's attacking threat, the United full-back played in a wonderful pass to Marcus Rashford's path.
In for the injured Raheem Sterling, Rashford suitably slotted the ball past David De Gea in the England goal for the uniquely United moment in a stellar encounter.
Not that the lead lasted all that long. Within a matter of moments, Atletico Madrid's Saul pulled Spain level after a wonderful attacking move.
