Ghana's No. 1

Casemiro moment for Brazil has Man United fans all saying the same thing ahead of Man City clash

Published on: 28 September 2022

Casemiro has been hailed by Manchester United fans after registering a spectacular assist in Brazil's 5-1 friendly win over Tunisia on Tuesday night.

Tite's side thrashed their opponents at the Parc des Princes in France, with former Leeds United man Raphinha grabbing a brace, while Richarlison, Neymar and Pedro all got on the scoresheet as well.

United midfielder Casemiro played the full 90 minutes for Brazil, while Fred and left-back Alex Telles - who is currently out on loan with Sevilla - also started. Antony came off the bench in the 65th minute, replacing Raphinha.

Casemiro assisted the Barcelona forward for the opening goal of the clash, with the Reds man delivering an inviting long-range pass into the Tunisia penalty area. After picking the ball up from just past the halfway line, his delivery was inch-perfect and allowed Raphinha to guide his header over Aymen Dahmen.

The 30-year-old has only started once for Erik ten Hag's side since his summer switch from Real Madrid. However, the Brazilian has shown glimpses of his undoubted quality when he has been on the pitch for United.

After coming on as a substitute against Ghana last week, the midfielder has recorded valuable minutes while on international duty and will be desperate to break into the starting line-up when he returns to Manchester.

His stunning assist against Tunisia on Tuesday got Reds supporters understandably excited - with many suggesting that he should start against Manchester City in the derby on Sunday. Here's what United fans had to say about Casemiro's performance for Brazil.
