Mason Greenwood Scores First Goal for Getafe in 2-2 Draw with Celta Vigo
Mason Greenwood, on loan from Manchester United to Spanish side Getafe, has made headlines by breaking his goal drought. Greenwood played a crucial role in his team's recent 2-2 draw against LaLiga rivals Celta Vigo, scoring to put Getafe ahead 2-1 in the 33rd minute.
Greenwood's goal evened the score after Borja Mayoral's early opener, but Celta Vigo fought back twice with goals from Jonathan Bamba and Jorgen Strand Larsen. Despite Domingos Duarte's first-half dismissal, which left Getafe with 10 players, they managed to secure a valuable point in the game. Getafe currently sits in the 11th position in the LaLiga standings with 10 points from nine matches.
This was Greenwood's fifth appearance for the Madrid-based Getafe, and he shared his excitement on Instagram, where his post received over 1.3 million likes. In his post, he wrote, "Happy to score my first goal for Getafe" and praised the "amazing team spirit" that helped them secure a point in the match.
