Manchester United fullback Reece James says his brace against LA Galaxy were his first goals for the club at any level!

Writing for manutd.com, James revealed he surprised himself with his impressive double.

"I thought I might get a chance to get forward but I never thought I’d get two goals from it. I don’t really remember much about them, though I have watched them back. They were both similar finishes after the ball just fell to me. It’s about being in the right place at the right time – thankfully I was that day.

"I hadn’t scored for United at any level so the first goal was a special moment. I was in a bit of shock – I just turned and looked for the first player who was running towards me. And when the second one went in, I couldn’t believe it was actually happening – it was just my lucky day.

"My team-mates were buzzing for me, though a few of them couldn’t believe I’d scored two goals, as even in training I’m not renowned as a goalscorer."
