    Shola Shoretire tweets after becoming youngest Man Utd player in Europe

    When the teenager replaced Academy graduate Mason Greenwood in the 76th minute, he became the club’s youngest ever player in a European match, at the age of 17 years and 23 days.

    The previous record holder was Norman Whiteside, who was 108 days older than Shoretire when he played in a continental fixture for the first time.

    Curiously, the competition, venue, scoreline and nationality of the opponents, Spanish, were all the same. United drew 0-0 at home to Valencia in the UEFA Cup, the Europa League’s former guise, when Whiteside made his debut in Europe, on 15 September 1982.
