Ravel Morrison Screamer helped Derby Edge past League Two side Salford

Last night in the football world was certainly entertaining.

28 EFL Cup 1st round matches took place on Tuesday Evening.

One game that did catch my eye was Derby 4-3 Salford {After Penalties}

Many people predicted there to be an upset, me being one of them.

Many people are doubting Wayne Rooney in his managerial career.

Last night had the possibility to doubt Rooney even more.

The game kicked off with an early goal In the 8th minute from Turnbull to make it 1-0 to Salford

Salford capitalized on a slow start by grabbing the 2nd goal from Morris inside 15 minutes to make it 2-0 to Salford

Just before half-time, however, Derby pulled a goal back via Hutchinson to narrow the margin to 2-1 going into half-time

Derby got on level terms midway through the 2nd half with a goal from Kazim-Richards from the penalty spot to take it to 2-2

Just 4 minutes later came Salford’s reply, again from the penalty spot Morris puts it in the back of the net to give Salford the lead at 3-2 with just over 15 minutes left.

To get back on level terms yet again Ravel Morrison scores a screamer of a goal, which you can view here

A Ravel Morrison goal sends the game to Penalties with the 90 minutes of football ending in a 3-3 dramatic draw.

In the penalty shootout, both teams scored their first penalty.

Derby put away their 2nd penalty however, Salford’s Luke Burgess fails to convert from 12 yards which gave Derby the lead in the shootout.

Salford then scored their next two penalties but it wasn’t enough as Derby scored all of their penalties which sends Derby through to the 2nd round of the EFL Cup

This is what cup football is about, a newly promoted league two team giving a championship side like Derby a run for their money

The only difference in the game was Ravel Morrison pulling a screamer out of the bag and one missed Penalty for Salford

Well done Salford.

You didn’t manage to win but you gave a good account of yourself.
