Despite Rahman's performance on the night, it was the former Ajax player that had the last laugh after helping Manchester United beat Reading 3-1 to progress in the FA Cup.

Compatriot Casimero netted a brace, including a stunning strike before Bruno Fernandez sealed victory late into the match.

Rahman is currently on loan at Reading from English giants Chelsea FC.

The 28-year-old was a member of Ghana's team at the World Cup in Qatar.

Casimero reveals inspiration behind United move

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Casemiro felt the need to join Manchester United after watching the 4-0 capitulation against Brenford in the opening stages of the league season.

Under new manager Erik Ten Hag, United made the worst possible start to a league campaign as an opening 2-1 defeat by Brighton was followed by a more humiliating mauling at the hands of Brentford.

On August 13, the Red Devils completely collapsed in the first half as goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo gave Brentford a 4-0 lead after just 35 minutes.

Rahman reflects on World Cup display
