At the point when the official indicated the spot following Presnel Kimpembe’s handball, Ferdinand jumped to his feet with a tremendous shout, and hollered ‘Please!’
As Rashford arranged to take the punishment, both Ferdinand and Hargreaves remained in expectation, while Owen sat back, arms collapsed.
As the strike hit the back of the net, Ferdinand shouted in pleasure once more, while Hargreaves cheered.

Moderator Gary Lineker, who played for Leicester, Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham, likewise punched the air.
Ferdinand, in any case, was in his component, yelling ‘Yes!’ and ‘Get out!’ in his enjoyment. He says: ‘Character, that is what it’s about. The youthful fellows coming in the group and playing.’
He at that point appeared to take a fly at previous United supervisor Jose Mourinho’s playing style, just as commending current between time manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ferdinand stated: ‘Kicking back and simply shielding the entire time, it don’t occur here. Indeed, Ole! What a pen!’
All through this, previous United striker Owen stayed quiet, unaffected by the sensational scenes in Paris.
Owen’s loyalties were maybe separated – in spite of the fact that he played for United somewhere in the range of 2009 and 2012, he began his profession at their most outstanding opponents, Liverpool, and is as of now a represetative for the Anfield club.
Rashford’s punishment sent United into the Champions League quarter finals with a 3-1 second leg win, having lost the main amusement 2-0. It is the first run through any side has returned from a two-objective annihilation at home in the knockout phase of this challenge.
