Sergio Romero replaces the injured de Gea and produces a string of superb saves

But it was all in vain as United slumped to another embarrassing defeat.

HE WAS CALLED into action at the last minute but Sergio Romero showed no signs of rustiness with an assured display between the posts for Man United tonight.

It was just unfortunate his performance came on another embarrassing night for the Premier League side as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Danish minnows FC Midtjylland.

The Argentine goalkeeper was promoted from the bench just 20 minutes before kick-off after David de Gea injured himself in the warm-up.

And he didn’t do his chances any harm with a string of impressive saves during the Europa League first-leg tie at the MCH Arena.

This incredible reflex stop, with the game at 1-1, was the pick of the bunch.
