HILARIOUS: Fans worldwide can’t believe Ashley Young scored twice in a match for Man Utd

32-year-old Ashley Young made headlines last night after his brace helped Manchester United secure a much-needed win over Watford at Vicarage Road.

Young’s brace was the first one he scored for Man United since 4th March 2012, topping up a series of good performances for the Red Devils this season.

A low hard strike and a sublime free kick in the first half from the Englishman helped Jose Mourinho’s men close the gap on leaders and arch-rivals Manchester City to five points. Frenchman Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard rounded off a well-deserved win.

Football fans all over the world who woke up to the news that Young scored a brace couldn’t believe it, most taking to social media to congratulate the player.

However, even though most posts were bent towards praising Young, some exaggerated his performance leading to the rise of jokes and memes about him.

Here is a sample of the posts:
