It was a good day and not because Manchester United won. Okay partly because Manchester United won. They beat Villareal 2:0 to qualify for the next round of the Champions League.
Last time my beloved United made it to the 2nd round was in 2019. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first goal to rack up his 6th goal in 5 games played in the competition. The first player for an English club to score in 5 consecutive Champions League games. There was also a debut goal for new recruit Jadon Sancho.
However, the day was capped with an early birthday gift from a friend. I was blown to smithereens by the gesture. I really appreciated it.
