To be unfair, let's clown the all-time howler he just unleashed on the world.

Maguire was right near the post, which made the finish a bit trickier than it seems. Nevertheless, that should be converted 100 times out of 100. Or maybe 99 out of 100, and this was the one error.

Now the good news. United still hasn't conceded a goal since Feb. 21, and still hasn't lost in any competition since Jan. 27. They've moved up to second in the Premier League table, and just beat league leaders and bitter rivals Manchester City on Sunday to snap City's 21-game win streak.

Amad Diallo scored in the 50th minute to give United a 1-0 lead against Milan, too. So there's plenty going for Maguire. Just not one particular golden opportunity to score.
