Manchester United vs AC Milan, Harry Maguire miss, reaction, Daniel James miss

Published

Manchester United rued a crucial miss from Harry Maguire as they settled for a 1-1 draw against AC Milan in the Europa League last 16 first leg.

Telles took the free kick and subsequently hit a player in the wall before AC Milan attempted to clear it out.

The ball though quickly came back into the box and the cross landed right in front of Maguire, who was unmarked at the far post with a clear shot from three yards out.

He could not finish off the play though, hitting the posts and coming to rue a serious missed opportunity.

Maguire’s HORROR miss haunts United | 00:53

BT Sport commentator Robbie Savage was stunned by the miss, saying: “Wow. He’s hit the post from a yard, that is quite incredible.

“Keeper gets a touch, it’s come off his shin pad! How has he missed?

“I’ve got no idea [how he missed]. A lack of concentration? Did it come off his shin? Did the keeper get a touch?

“Whatever the excuse, he’s got to score.”

Savage’s colleague and ex-United midfielder Owen Hargreaves said at half-time: “He won’t believe that he missed.”

Meanwhile, BT Sport commentator Ian Darke added the miss “defied mathematics.”

It was not the only moment of frustration for Maguire, who was heard telling teammates to “stop f***ing giving the ball away” after a poor start to the game.

In Maguire’s defence he was right near the post which slightly complicated the shot and as a centre-back, his job is not exactly to score goals.

A touch from Gianlugi Donnarumma also deflected the ball slightly so that it went up and hit Maguire’s shin, making it a tougher shot to put in.

This was a chance that had to be converted though and it was not the only one that will come up in United’s next video review session.

While Maguire’s miss may have been more glaring due to his proximity to the goal, Daniel James also sent his touch wide just before the 72nd minute.
