Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced that Scott McTominay played with “one eye” in the first half of the Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain after losing a contact lens.
McTominay started alongside Fred and Bruno Fernandes in the center and was impressed by United’s PSG 2-1 finalists in their Group H opener last season on Tuesday.
As Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, and Donny van de Beek watched from the bench in the first half, McTominay played well for United, who took a 1-0 lead in the break thanks to Fernandes’ 23rd-minute penalty in Paris.
Anthony Martial’s own goal in the 55th minute was a PSG equalizer, but Marcus Rashford scored a United game-winner with three minutes left at the Parc des Princes, where the Red Devils had a historic 10th consecutive victory in all competitions.
Solskjaer singled out McTominay ‘s post-match, telling reporters, “Scotty even played the first-half with one eye, which was the most remarkable thing, since he lost his contact lens, which was remarkable.”
