Marcus Rashford’s late winner against West Ham on Saturday afternoon created an Old Trafford moment that will live long in the memory for everybody inside the Theatre of Dreams.

The homegrown hero tapped in at the back post to secure three pivotal Premier League points with virtually the last kick of the game and the reaction was electrifying, both on and off the pitch. 

United is an international club with millions of fans and not everybody can make it to the stadium, of course, which is why our media team does its very best to capture footage that makes it feel like you are there too. 

A perfect example has been trending across social media and our channels since the weekend, showing an unrivalled angle of Rashford’s finish and the resulting celebrations – including Edinson Cavani’s passionate roars to the Stretford End! 

Take a look at it now and relive that magical moment all over again…

We'll never tire of watching the delirium among the players when celebrating our winner...


Our talented video producer Madeleine Bellis is responsible for capturing the viral footage at Old Trafford and many more of our trending clips from matchday. As she explains, it’s all about bringing the fans closer to the team.  

“It doesn’t get any better than filming pitch-side for me, eagerly trying to capture special moments that aren’t picked up on broadcast footage and make fans around the world feel like they are in the stadium with you,” says Maddy. “A perfect example is the last-minute winner on Saturday.

“As Rashford scored, I knew it was going to be gold! Cavani’s passion, McTominay’s tumble, Fred running from the dugout, Telles punching the corner flag and everything else that was going on in that one clip. Trying to stay calm and steady in all the chaos of a goal is never easy but it is worth it when you capture the players’ raw emotion and fans’ excitement like that.”
