The Manchester United U18 team defeated the Wolves 4-2 on Saturday morning.

Goals from Rhys Bennett, Isak Hansen, Charlie McNeill and Maxi Oyedele resulted in two wins from two Premier League Cup games.

Bennett also got an assist as United left late to claim a win. Ryan Giggs’ son Zach got a very brief cameo in stoppage time.

It was Giggs’ U18 debut when he was just 15 years old.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was present at the game, according to the Manchester Evening News.

There is still a long way to go before Giggs or one of his teammates is in Solskjaer’s first team, but the Norwegian appreciates the promotion of young talent.

Being the son of a United legend will only put pressure on young Zech, so it’s important not to expect too much too soon.

United were 2-0 up at halftime thanks to goals from Bennett and Isak Hansen.

Wolves shot back in the 53rd minute as United goalkeeper Eric Hanbury parried an Ethan McLeod penalty that converted the rebound.

Tyler Roberts made it 2-2 with five minutes to go before McNeil scored 3-2 with a minute to go.

Midfielder Oyedele sealed the win on an afternoon that marked another step in Giggs’ development.
