Defiant Blades Hold United in FA Youth Cup Final First Leg

After his first goal was disallowed, Will Keane grabbed United's second

Manchester United threw away the lead twice as they were held to a draw by Sheffield United in the first leg of the FA Youth Cup Final.

United are bidding for their record tenth title as the teams face each other again in the second leg at Old Trafford on Monday.

The opening goal came of a very controversial decision. Paul Pogba’s header, or debatably his hand, was glanced on to the crossbar by Jesse Lingard, who was also thought to have handled.

The linesman awarded the goal although later replays reveal that the goal should not have stood as the whole ball didn’t cross the line. Yet another call from English football for goal line technology.

A wonderful strike by Callum McFadzean got the nervy Blades level. His effort from 25-yards sailed into the bottom corner of the net, past the right hand side of the United goalkeeper.

After a Will Keane goal was disallowed for offside, the Stockport-born youngster scored legitimately and United looked sure to go on to win the tie.

Sheffield United remained defiant and grabbed the equaliser soon after with Jordan Slew’s effort.

Old Trafford will host the second-leg on Monday when we will find out this seasons FA Youth Cup victors.

You can see a match report of the second leg on The Youth Radar on Tuesday morning.
