Twitter reacts as Manchester United qualify for the Europa League semi-finals

In the end, it proved tough work but Manchester United have made it through to the semifinals of the Europa League.

United did not have a first-half to write home about and was at the receiving end of two VAR calls. Not only did we have a penalty overturned but also saw a goal chalked off.

The Red Devils improved after the break and peppered the Copenhagen goal with shots. The game would have been done and dusted had it not been for the sheer brilliance of goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson.

The Swede made 13 saves and single-handedly kept his side in the game. He could, however, do little to deny Bruno Fernandes from the spot after Anthony Martial was brought down in the penalty area.

Fernandes’ strike once again proved to make the difference as the game stayed 1-0 at the end of extra time.

United were largely wasteful in the attack and missed a number of chances. They also went close and struck the frame of the goal a number of times.
