Speed celebrates like crazy after United win

The social media personality celebrated like crazy after the final whistle, screaming in delight and hugging fellow YouTuber Amy after United won the FA Cup.

What made the victory even more delightful for Speed was that fellow Ronaldo fan Alejandro Garnacho scored the opening goal for the Red Devils.

The Argentine star took full advantage of a mix-up between Manchester City goalkeeper Stefan Ortega and defender Josko Gvardiol as he was left with an open goal in the 30th minute to give United a 1-0 lead.

Garnacho also played a part in United's second goal nine minutes later, delivering the pass to Bruno Fernandes, who then issued a no-look assist to Kobbie Mainoo, who crowned the move with a composed finish.

United hold off City in thrilling finish

There were some anxious moments for United fans in the second half as City launched a furious fightback. Erling Haaland nearly scored after hitting the frame of the goal.

United keeper Andre Onana also made a superb save on Kyle Walker's effort. City's pressure was ultimately rewarded, with Jeremy Doku pulling a goal back for the defending champions in the 87th minute, per the BBC.

United managed to hold on to their lead, though, as they secured their 13th FA Cup title.

Mainoo, Garnacho equal Ronaldo's record

Sports Brief recently reported on Mainoo and Garnacho making history in the win against Man City.

They became the first teenagers to score in an FA Cup final since Cristiano Ronaldo accomplished that feat in 2004.

The Portuguese star scored in United's win over Milwall two decades ago.
