Manchester United has defeated Norwich, to reach the FA Cup semi-finals, with Harry Maguire scoring deep into the extra-time to secure the victory.
The game turned on the dismissal of substitute Timm Klose in the 89th minute. Norwich were in the ascendancy after equalising, and looked favourites to snatch a late winner, before the German was shown a straight red for pulling back Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo.
The first goal by Manchester was scored by Ighalo, who continued his good run in cup competitions, with a flicked effort with the outside of his boot in the 51st minute.
The second goal was even better. Todd Cantwell, Norwich’s best Player in attack at Carrow Road, let fly from 25 yards, with a low swerving shot that beat the reach of Sergio Romero.
Norwich will now focus on their increasingly difficult task of beating the drop from the Premier League.
As for United, this was a patchy display, but they remain in contention in two cup competitions, and for a top-four spot in the League.
