Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Alexsandr Golovin performance v Egypt

The Russian talent has been in fine form for his country this summer and Manchester United are said to be keen.

After pulling the strings against Saudi Arabia he carried on where he left off, with Egypt unable to stop him from influencing the game.

His form is, as expected, catching the eye of Premier League sides. One such team is Manchester United.
