Manchester United crashed out of this season’s FA Cup as Championship side Middlesbrough won 8-7 on penalties after 120 minutes of football ended 1-1 at Old Trafford on Friday.
Young striker Anthony Elanga blazed his shot over the bar to send Middlesbrough into the next round.
It was only the second time in 11 meetings with Premier League opposition that Middlesbrough had progressed, following on from their equally surprising success at Manchester City in 2015.
The shocking defeat means United’s most realistic chance of silverware has now disappeared.
Meanwhile, the draw for the FA Cup fifth round will take place on Sunday.
