Manchester United have been eliminated from the UEFA Youth League by Borussia Dortmund on penalties.
United were beaten on penalties after the match a back-and-forth 90 minutes saw the scores at 2-2 in the youth equivalent of the Champions League.
Former Manchester City academy prospect Jamie Bynoe-Gittens scored both of Dortmund’s goals and bagged the winning spot-kick in the shootout.
Ralf Rangnick watched on as United came from behind twice, with Rhys Bennett and starlet Charlie McNeill getting on the scoresheet.
McNeill, whose equaliser came in the 85th minute, was also at the centre of controversy after being clipped in the penalty area seconds before full-time by BVB substitute Samuel Bamba.
The referee failed to point to the spot though, and McNeill missed his penalty in the shootout as Dortmund emerged as 3-1 victors at a chilly Leigh Sports Village, with Bynoe-Gittens capping off a memorable night back in Manchester.
