Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford showed character


The boss was in no doubt that they were the right men for the job and believes that they can use this experience to kick on in similar high-pressure scenarios, which will inevitably come their way.

“I think it’s great that they had this experience now, and it will help them for the future, and I don’t think there’s hesitation,” the Dutchman said. “Before, there was never a hesitation, because they are really good penalty-takers.”

In only his second appearance at Wembley since that fateful night in 2021, Rashford came closest to breaking the deadlock, with a searing deflected shot requiring a world-class save from Brighton keeper Sanchez.

Despite not starting the game, fellow countryman Sancho impressed with his cameo, coming on five minutes before the end of the 90 minutes and providing the Reds with a vital energy and composure as we sought an extra-time breakthrough.

The pair certainly played their part in sending us to the FA Cup final clash with rivals City at Wembley on 3 June.
