World Cup winner Archer reveals his United idol
World Cup-winning cricketer Jofra Archer recently revealed which Manchester United player first inspired him to start supporting the Reds.
England, who are captained by another United fan in Eoin Morgan, were awarded the victory for notching the higher combined total of fours and sixes, 26 to New Zealand's 17. Archer was quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "My heart is still racing! It's the biggest thing I've ever won. [The England team is] a great bunch of fellas, a really good family to me."
Asked about how he started following the team, he highlighted the all-action style of United's greatest goalscorer, Wayne Rooney.
“I liked Rooney – I thought he was the best player, and he probably had the highest rating on the game, as well, at the time.”
