The England international, who was restored to the starting line-up after missing the weekend&aposs win over Fulham through injury, was dismissed after 42 minutes. He went to protect the ball in a 50-50 with Elias Jelert but went over the top and stamped on the defender&aposs ankle.
It was purely accidental from the attacker, but the referee, who made the decision after being advised to go to the pitchside monitor by the VAR, was left with no choice but to dismiss the academy graduate. Rashford smiled as he was dismissed, seemingly in disbelief at the referee&aposs decision.
As a result, unless UEFA deem that it was violent conduct, he will miss the clash with Galatasaray in United&aposs penultimate Group A clash later this month. United travel to Turkey on Wednesday, November 29.
Rashford&aposs dismissal was a key turning point in the contest, with United&aposs 2-0 advantage being wiped out a little over 10 minutes after he left the field of play. Copenhagen got one back in the 45th minute through Mohamed Elyounoussi before Diogo Goncalves made it 2-2 from the penalty spot in added time.
