Marcus Rashford may have given Manchester United a welcome boost in their pursuit of a top four finish in the Premier League when he went down in the box to win a controversial penalty against Swansea, but he left Swansea and social media in a rage.
The referee pointed to the spot for a foul from Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, but there appeared to be little contact on the attacker who was going down before the challenge was made.
Wayne Rooney subsequently converted to give his side a 1-0 lead deep in injury time of the first-half, and with Swansea locked in a battle for survival, it could prove a crucial moment for both sides.
However, many spectators were appalled at the way Jose Mourinho's men took the lead.
Rashford only 19 and diving like micheal Phelps at 30. So proud of him— David (@Degeaod) April 30, 2017
Spanish commentators left stunned by Rashford dive. "It's left me cold, I feel disappointed by him, I had such a good opinion of him."— Richard Martin (@Rich9908) April 30, 2017
Marcus Rashford, more like Marcus Splashford, right? RIGHT? I mean, the dive.. if you dive in a pool? Splash? No? Oh, what do you know..— Jonas Giæver (@CheGiaevara) April 30, 2017
Commentators doing their best to avoid saying it was a dive by Rashford. Wonder if they'd be the saying the same if he wasn't English...— Football Whispers (@FB_WHISPERS) April 30, 2017

Never ever ever a penalty for Man Utd. Rashford dives. Not clever. Cheating. Feel sorry for Swansea who have been superb,,,— Adrian Clarke (@adrianjclarke) April 30, 2017
