This Is What Lukaku Said To Comfort Benfica's Heartbroken Young Goalkeeper

This Is What Lukaku Said To Comfort Benfica's Heartbroken Young Goalkeeper”

If karma exists then Romelu Lukaku will surely score bags of goals for Manchester United over the coming weeks.

Jose Mourinho expressed his admiration for Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar's risk-taking and potential, calling him a "phenomenon" - despite the 18-year-old's mistake on Wednesday night to hand Manchester United the win.

The teenager became the youngest keeper ever to appear in the Champions League, breaking Iker Casillas' record, and is widely regarded as one of Europe's hottest prospects in his position.

Only those with hearts of stone didn't feel some level of sympathy towards the Belgium Under-19 global, who looked devastated after the match. The teen 'keeper misjudged the flight of a swerving Marcus Rashford free-kick and despite managing to catch the ball, the momentum caused him to carry the ball over his own goalline while back-tracking.

Watch the post-match scenes in our video above. "I played a good game but I could have done better with the goal - it's part of growing up, I can't return it now".

"Okay, he made a mistake and it's one of those things and you go on and finish with it". "It didn't affect me, so I am ready for this". (Reuters) David De Gea also approached the 18-year-old goalkeeper.

And Stepney, a European Cup winning goalkeeper, was pleased to see the players trying to encourage the youngster and is keen to see Svilar put the performance behind him.

"Yeah, it was nice", the Belgian added. "He [Lukaku] just said that I don't have to worry".

Great stuff from the lad.

Thoughts on Lukaku's getsure to the young Svilar, last night?
