Lukaku and Rashford made two plans before the game to unlock PSG’s defence

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford revealed they made two cunning pre-match plans to unlock Paris Saint-Germain’s defence-and both ended up leading to goals.

Lukaku revealed a pre-match chat with his striking partner sparked their on-field heroics.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: “Me and Marcus (Rashford) knew we could do the business today after playing together against Fulham.

“It was a pleasure to play with him today like that. We agreed to step up the press together and I told him every time he shoots I would follow the ball in.

“We just keep going – everything starts on the training ground with 5 v 5, 6 v 6 and the competitiveness starts there. It’s natural to us, we keep going until the referee blows the whistle.”

On his penalty kick, Rashford said: “I just thought to keep a cool head. It’s the type of thing you practice in training every day. I wanted to take it and we got the goal and now we progress.”
