Manchester United had three African stars in the starting XI for the first time in the club's UEFA Champions League history.
Manchester United celebrate Africa
This marks the first time the club had ever started three Africans in a Champions League game and could serve as a pointer to the increased influence Africa is starting to have on the global scene.
Erik ten Hag's men failed to get the desired result though, as they twice threw away leads to make it two losses from two games in this season's UEFA Champions League.
He made a costly error that led to Casemiro getting sent off and was easily beaten by Mauro Icardi for Galatasaray's winner.
Sofyan Amrabat didn't fare much better either, having a hand in the second and third goals for the visitors.
Overall, it was a disappointing night for United's African contingent.
