Video: Ashley Young’s penalty taking hasn’t improved (Barcelona vs Manchester United)
Any paranoid England fans who thought that Ashley Young was saving his best penalties for Manchester United duty can throw away their conspiracy theories.
After missing a spot-kick in England’s shootout defeat to Italy at Euro 2012, Young missed again last night as United’s pre-season clash with Barcelona went to penalties.
Fair play to Barca keeper Jose Pinto who went to the effort of playing mind-games in the meaningless shootout.
United lost 2-0 on penalties after Young and Nani missed the Premier League runners-up’s opening two spot-kicks. The game had finished 0-0.
