Manchester United fans react to Memphis Depay's performance on Twitter

Manchester United linked Memphis Depay scored the winner for Holland against Australia.

The way Memphis Depay's shot squirmed away from Australian goalkeeper Matt Ryan may have been slightly fortuitous, but nobody has been begrudging the 20-year-old his first World Cup goal.

The second half substitute was lively throughout the Group B encounter, with his attacking intent and quick feet standing out.

Depay has been linked over the past month with a move to Manchester United, where he would play under Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal, and he did his chances no harm yesterday.

With one goal and one assist to his name in 45 minutes of football, Depay will look back on the match fondly, as he helped the Dutch seal their passage to the knockout stages.

Assistant boss Patrick Kluivert was delighted with the PSV winger's performance, stating: "That goal is typical of Memphis.

"He has a great shot, can dribble, and is like no other, Memphis actually has the total package."

Depay made his own luck with the goal, hitting the ball with such power from outside the box that it changed flight and bounced awkwardly for the goalkeeper.

He certainly did enough to win over the majority of watching United supporters too, here is a look at how they reacted on Twitter:
