Man United 23-Man Squad for Crucial UCL Match

Man United

In preparation for the UEFA Champions League clash against FC Copenhagen, Man United has selected a 23-man squad for the important fixture. The team, managed by Erik ten Hag, seeks to secure back-to-back victories against the Scandinavian opponent after their 1-0 win at Old Trafford in Group A. The match holds significant importance as it paves the way for future encounters with Galatasaray and Bayern Munich in the same group.

Despite missing the Premier League’s 1-0 win over Fulham, both Victor Lindelof and Marcus Rashford have been included in the squad after being spotted in training at Carrington on Tuesday morning. Youngster Omari Forson is part of the squad, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is expected to make his European debut this campaign, having started at Craven Cottage.

Casemiro’s absence from the squad is a result of an injury that has struck him down, following his suspension from the previous Champions League fixture. While this setback is unfortunate for the team, it offers an opportunity for others to step up and fill the void in the midfield.

On the other hand, Kobbie Mainoo is set to make his return to action. He will be participating in the Under-19s squad for their upcoming UEFA Youth League match against the same opponent. This game holds special significance as it marks a pivotal moment in Mainoo’s comeback journey after a period of injury.

For fans located in the United Kingdom and Ireland, there’s good news as the match will be broadcast live on MUTV. This ensures that supporters can follow Mainoo’s progress closely and witness the promising young talent in action. The kick-off is scheduled for 15:00 GMT, so be sure not to miss this exciting encounter.

The traveling squad includes:

Goalkeepers: Andre Onana, Altay Bayindir, Tom Heaton.

Defenders: Diogo Dalot, Jonny Evans, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Sergio Reguilon, Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Midfielders: Sofyan Amrabat, Christian Eriksen, Bruno Fernandes, Hannibal, Scott McTominay, Mason Mount.

Forwards: Alejandro Garnacho, Antony, Omari Forson, Rasmus Hojlund, Anthony Martial, Facundo Pellistri, Marcus Rashford.
