Watch: Manchester United fans tumble to ground as advertising hoarding collapses during wild celebrations vs Nottingham Forest

Manchester United eased past Nottingham Forest during their EFL Cup semi-final outing at the City Ground of Nottingham, but there has been a fan fear the moment that occurred during the game.

United started the game with a high tempo after Marcus Rashford scored the opening within just 6 minutes and the English winger has now hit double digits after the game resumed post-World Cup.

The new loan signing Wout Weghorst who arrived at Old Trafford a few days ago has his first goal, courtesy of a poacher’s finish following Antony’s shot saved by the Forest goalkeeper Hennessey.

Bruno Fernandes killed off the game after scoring a perfect low shot past Hennessey during the 89th minute of the game and the Portuguese ran towards the away stand as the crowd went berserk.

The chaos happened with Manchester United’s third goal as the crowd pushed each other to embrace their superstar while he was celebrating resulting in a tumble.

The gathering of fans aggregated a large number within a short space and the ferocity of the celebration caused the advertising board to collapse and the fans were grounded.

The City Ground staff of Nottingham rushed to the spot and picked up the crowds immediately and put the advertising board back on its feet while fans went back to the stands once more.

Gary Neville was on commentary during the semi-final clash, and he was really tensed following the situation and said, “It’s not pleasant to watch that for a moment or two, but it looks like everyone is OK.”

Football fans across the world seemed concerned regarding the situation and expressed their opinions. One said: “Bloody hell are they taking the p*** with those advertising hoardings? Could have been nasty that.”

Another wrote: “That advertising board collapsing could’ve gone a lot worse than it did.”

However, much to the relief of everybody, there have been no serious injuries that occurred during the tumble and fans seemed to have enjoyed the game since the first whistle was blown.
