Nottingham Forest players copy Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration after scoring against Man United but came away with an egg in their face after the goal was ruled out for offside by VAR

But the goal was ruled out for the tightest of offsides

In front of traveling United fans, Surridge and team-mate Morgan Gibbs-White celebrated just as Ronaldo did when he scored the winner against Everton in October while still with Erik ten Hag’s side .

However, it wasn’t the celebratory ‘Siu’ the Portuguese superstar almost dropped off, but a standing sleeping position, seemingly a nod to the way he sleeps on the team bus.

But VAR intervened and the former Bournemouth striker had his goal ruled out for offside by the slimmest of margins, sparking fury in the stands among home fans.

It was a cruel moment for Forest, who did their best to revive in the draw against United in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

However, the knife was well and truly twisted when Wout Weghorst doubled United’s lead just before half-time, scoring his new club’s first goal since moving to Old Trafford on loan.

The Dutchman pounced on the ball after Wayne Hennessey saved Antony’s shot and placed it directly in the striker’s path, who made no mistake on the rebound.

The England international has been in breathtaking form, scoring ten games in ten as his antics in front of goal since the World Cup have reached incredible levels.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ commentary, Gary Neville said: “It’s kind of like the ball popping at the party.

“We know the form Rashford has been in.

“Worrall had a tough start and he passes him like he wasn’t there. Freuler must also improve with him.

“Rashford, who you think could cross, sees the gap at the near post and digs it in with his left foot. In what shape is he!
