Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku exercised a sportsmanship worth praising in the Champions league match against Benfica SC in which they won 1-0.

Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku was seen hugging his fellow Belgian Mile Svilar after the youngster made a crucial mistake that led to Rashford goal.

The single mistake proved decisive as Manchester United took a 1-0 win over Benfica to stay top with 9 points.

Svilar made history in the match by becomingĀ the youngest-ever goalkeeper at 18 years and 52 days but saw his costly error that saw him drift across the line and into the goal with the ball in his hands

The Manchester United star took the time after the match to speak with his young countryman who was visibly upset and closed the exchange with a hearty hug for the young man.

Manchester United currently top the group with 9 points.
