Manchester United prevail over AC Milan after 26 penalty shootout

It took 26 penalties but Manchester United finally prevailed over AC Milan in California on Wednesday.

The two sides couldn’t be separated after Suso cancelled out Alexis Sanchez three minutes after the Chilean’s 12th minute opener.

What ensued was a miraculous penalty shootout, which ended 9-8 in United’s favour. It was Franck Kessie who lost it for Milan, the midfielder sending his panenka attempt over the bar.

The Red Devils looked much sharper than their previous two friendlies in America and will be hoping to carry the momentum into their next friendly against fierce rivals, Liverpool, on Sunday.
