Fans might not be allowed into stadiums due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but this didn't get in the way of one streaker. The incident happened during Manchester United's first leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie against LaLiga side Granada. With just five minutes on the clock, a man sporting a long beard and wild curly hair, spread his arms out as he ran across the field naked in a bizarre moment to start the game. The man's antics were briefly caught by television broadcasters before cameras quickly panned to one of the players. As the cameras looked elsewhere the man was quickly apprehended by police and escorted off the pitch, and play could resume. How the man got onto the pitch is not known with fans not allowed in the Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmene stadium. Though cameras picked up the streaker, they ever so nearly missed the first goal of the game when Marcus Rashford brilliantly slotted home to give United the lead. Bruno Fernandes scored a stoppage time penalty to give the Red Devils a 2-0 advantage going into the second-leg at Old Trafford.
