Man Utd fans still can’t believe Antony didn’t pass with THREE players free to tap it in
MAN UNITED fans were in shock as Antony wasted one chance for a goal against Real Betis last night.
The Brazilian winger was one-on-one with Claudio Bravo and opted for a shot instead of a simple pass to one of Marcus Rashford, Wout Weghorst or Fred.

Antony has already scored one brilliant goal in the game and was confident at United were leading the Europa League tie 3-1.
In the 62nd minute, after a good piece of interplay with Bruno Fernandes, Antony was played through and could have squared the ball for one of the trio to extend the side’s lead.
However, his dicked effort flew well over the bar leaving the former Ajax man with his head in his hands.
And fans are still complaining as to why Antony did not square the ball.
One tweeted: “How am I gonna tell my kids Antony didn’t pass here.”
A second commented: “Ah! Ah! Ah! I mean how?”
A third wrote: “I thought for sure it’s a goal and yet…”
A fourth said: “Impossible to shoot! Three players right? How many times did you see it?”

Luckily for the 23-year-old Weghorst went on to score in the 82 minute as United were able to win the game by a three-goal margin.
The goal meant a lot to the Dutch forward after he suffered a backlash from the club’s supporters for touching the ‘This is Anfield’ before Sunday’s 7-0 loss to Liverpool.
The Red Devils will take their advantage to Spain for the away leg of the round of 16 tie next Thursday.
The goal that Antony did score was his second in the competition this season, he trails Rashford as the tournament’s top scorer by three goals.
