Manchester star Amad Diallo made history on Thursday night after his team drew 1-1 in the Europa League round of 16 first leg with AC Milan.

Diallo came off the bench and made an immediate impact in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16 at Old Trafford, heading home a pass from Bruno Fernandes.


But, Simon Kjaer beat united goalkeeper Dean Henderson with a header in the final seconds to ensure the tie remains 1-1 before next week’s second leg.


According to OptaJoe, Diallo’s goal against Milan means that the young Ivorian is now the youngest non-British player to score in a major European competition for Man United at the age of 18 years and 243 days.
