Jadon Sancho explained his shin-pads celebration to a young fan. (Check it out)

Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho showed class as he celebrated the game-winning goal in the 1-0 victory in Sheriff Tiraspol.

In the 17th minute of the Europa League match, the forward put his team up by scoring with his left foot.

The 22-year-celebration old’s was especially touching because he showed off some personalized shin guards that a young Manchester United fan had given to him earlier in the season as a present.

According to Sancho, “a kid asked me to wear them” before the game.

The goal I scored was only my way of showing him that I had shin guards on.

He dedicated the song to Jacob, a “young legend,” in a later tweet.

In the 36th minute, Sancho, who was left out of Gareth Southgate’s England team for their upcoming UEFA Nations League games, had an effort cleared off the line and posed a serious threat.

He mentioned that he still has faith in making England’s World Cup roster.

“I was hoping to get called up, but alas, it didn’t happen. Nonetheless, I have to keep my head down and keep grinding, week after week.

And with his third goal of the season coming in the Europa League, he appears to be accomplishing just that. After Diogo Dalot was fouled inside the penalty area, Cristiano Ronaldo converted the ensuing penalty to double the lead for Erik ten Hag’s squad.

This is Ronaldo’s first goal of the season, his first in the Europa League, and his 699th for his club overall.

Man United cruised to an easy 2-0 victory thanks to a penalty kick from Ronaldo.

After losing their Europa League opener at home to Real Sociedad, Ten Hag’s squad finally has a win to their name.

On October 6, they’ll be heading to Cyprus for their next European assignment. There, they’ll face off against Omonia FC.
