Marcus Rashford 'confused' by the referee's decision

Manchester United played a great match against Barcelona, which ended 2-2. This will be a good advantage for the Red Devils before the rematch at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford was United's best player, and with one goal and an assist for the second 'own goal,' he was of great help to his team.
"We started the game really well. There was good control and possession.
We had moments in the first half but not really as many clean cut chances. Just good moments that could have been great opportunities I think.
From the first couple of minutes putting the ball across the face of goal is a massive chance.
It ends up not really a chance because no one was there, but in reality it's a massive opportunity for us and we just have to gamble more and try and get in front of the goalkeeper, in front of the six yard box for tap ins."- Marcus Rashford said, as quoted by eurosport.com
Marcus Rashford on Barcelona
Rashford knew that Barcelona would give their all and that they would show the necessary quality.
“So yeah, in big games it's big moments that make the difference.
I feel like, especially in the second half we took them but in the first half we probably could have done more. But again, like I said, they're a top team and I think we got what we expected today in terms of their playing style and what they're good at.
It's a good performance from us and one to build on and improve on." Araujo's challenge was a special topic. Many believe that the referee should have called a penalty. "At 2-1, yeah I don't understand why the referee thinks I'm going down in that position.
If I've touched it past him, I'm one-on-one with the keeper, there's no gain for me to go down at all.
Confused by that decision but we have to move on now and 2-2 is a result we can take back. We can definitely take that performance, we have a league game in between, but for the next game we want to bring all that we can."
