Man Utd's Last-Gasp Triumph: Onana's Heroics Secure 1-0 Victory Over Copenhagen

Man United Narrowly Triumph Over Copenhagen in Champions League Thriller

*Manchester, United Kingdom* In a heart-stopping Champions League clash at Old Trafford, Manchester United emerged victorious with a 1-0 win over Copenhagen. Manager Erik ten Hag praised his players for their remarkable resilience, and goalkeeper Andre Onana's brilliant penalty save in the dying seconds sealed their triumph.

Ten Hag couldn't contain his excitement after the intense match against the Danish club. "Of course, it is incredible and a great night. Especially in the dying second when you concede a penalty, but a brilliant save from Andre Onana," he exclaimed.

He commended the standout performances of key players, noting, "Those players, Harry Maguire played a good game and Andre Onana as well. He made an important save just after half-time." Ten Hag acknowledged that the first half may not have gone as planned, but his team displayed composure, stepped up in the second half, and created more scoring opportunities. "It was a narrow escape in the end," he admitted.

The entrance of Christian Eriksen into the match was crucial in United's second-half resurgence. Ten Hag highlighted Eriksen's impact, saying, "Very important, Christian is always positive. He brings football, and we did not have the football in the first half. Copenhagen is well-organized, and you have to break them. Christian Eriksen makes the right passes."

On the challenges in maintaining team balance, particularly when it comes to the backline, Ten Hag said: "Of course, every time we have to change the backline, if you look back to last year, we had a very good back four and so consistent, with Casemiro in front all the time we controlled the ball."

He also acknowledged the ongoing effort to regain that balance, stating, "This season, every time we have had to swap the back four, the routines go away, and the midfield opens up, and we struggle to get the right balance. But, I am sure when we get the routines back in the back four, it gives the team a foundation to play off."

Andre Onana We Will Make It

Goalkeeper Andre Onana was instrumental in securing the win, and he modestly commented, "I'm just doing my job, the most important thing is to win against a tough team." Onana expressed his belief in Manchester United's potential and emphasized the club's stature, stating, "We are Manchester United. We are a big club, big players. It's just a matter of time, now we have to continue like this. I have no doubt we will make it."
