Sergio Romero made a rare start for Manchester United against Feyenoord and repaid manager Jose Mourinho by keeping a clean sheet.

The Argentine goalkeeper is a back-up for David de Gea, but stepped in adeptly with the Spaniard rested.

While the hapless Brad Jones scored an own goal at the other end, Romero had no such trouble.

He made a vital double save in the first half with the score at 0-0, which prevented the game taking a different direction.

Romero has not figured much since signing for United in 2015, due to the excellent form of David de Gea.

It is easy to forget he is an Argentine international who started in the 2014 World Cup final, and United have a real luxury with him happy to sit as a reserve.

Last night showed he can be depended on, which will give confidence to their injury hit backline, for when he is called upon for a tougher test at some stage.
