United’s famous fathers

Plenty of other children of famous Reds have made their mark elsewhere. For example, Nobby Stiles’s boy John served Leeds United and Doncaster Rovers as a midfielder. Devante Cole, son of Andy, represented England at various youth levels while on Manchester City’s books and has more recently scored goals in the Football League for clubs such as Bradford City and Fleetwood Town.

Spanning sports, Arnie Sidebottom – who played football for United and cricket for England – has a son, Ryan, who has made a name for himself in the latter game as a bowler for the national team and county sides Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

Harry McShane was an outside-left for the Reds in the early 1950s and his son, Ian, has become a much-loved actor in programmes such as LovejoyDeadwood and Game of Thrones.

On the flip side, a number of our players have had footballing fathers who did not perform for United but shone for other sides. They include Jordi Cruyff (son of Ajax, Barcelona and Netherlands icon Johan), Daley Blind (Ajax and Netherlands legend Danny), Gary Bailey (Ipswich Town goalkeeper Roy) and Juan Sebastian Veron (Estudiantes midfielder Juan Ramon).

Matic makes England v Serbia prediction

While England are among the favourites to win the competition, Serbia have qualified for the first time as an independent nation.

Dragan Stojkovic’s men finished runners-up behind Hungary to book a place at the tournament in Germany and are looking to progress to the knockout rounds of a major finals for the first time since 2000, when they competed as Yugoslavia.

Matic, whose international career spanned from 2008 to 2019, has also identified a primary threat for the Three Lions to take into consideration.

McTominay earns 50th cap in Euro 2024 opener

Young midfielder Florian Wirtz, whose only defeat in all competitions with Bayer Leverkusen in 2023/24 came in the Europa League final, struck first, as his strike from the edge of the box was too powerful for Scotland keeper Angus Gunn to stop.

Bayern starlet Jamal Musiala made it 2-0 after 19 minutes, smashing a fierce effort beyond Gunn to give the tournament hosts clear daylight.

The Tartan Army rallied but, despite showing fight and guile in the first 45 minutes, their task became more difficult on the stroke of half-time when defender Ryan Porteous was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Barcelona midfielder Ilkay Gundogan. Referee Clement Turpin dismissed the Watford centre-back and awarded a penalty, which Arsenal forward Kai Havertz dispatched with ease.
