Following Andre Onana's amazing penalty save for Manchester United, Peter Schmeichel responded on the pitch.

In the Champions League, Manchester United defeated Copenhagen 1-0, and Andre Onana was the hero. After losing their first two Group A matches against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray, United needed to win at Old Trafford on Tuesday. And they nearly grasped that.

Harry Maguire's header in the 72nd minute gave the Red Devils a hard-fought victory. The defender, who has drawn a lot of criticism due to his decline in play, has had an incredible few days. He was selected Man of the Match on Saturday during United's 2-1 victory over Sheffield United. And he's now secured a crucial three points against Copenhagen by scoring the game-winning goal in the Champions League.

But Maguire wouldn't have been the match winner if it wasn't for Onana. In the 95th minute, Scott McTominay was penalised for a high foot on Mohamed Elyounoussi as United failed to clear a late winner. A penalty was awarded and it looked as though United's chances of qualifying for the knockout stages were in tatters. However, Jordan Larsson - son of for United loanee Hendrik Larsson - saw his effort brilliantly saved by Onana to preserve the 1-0 lead. The final whistle was blown seconds later.
