Anthony Martial scored his first Champions League goal for Manchester United Wednesday, making up for an earlier gaffe that had put the Red Devils in peril on the road.

Martial, whose handball in the first half led to CSKA Moscow's opening goal, netted the equalizer in the 65th minute to salvage a 1-1 draw for Manchester United in Russia.

The 19-year-old Martial turned in a diving header off the post from Antonio Valencia's cross from the right for his fifth goal in all competitions since joining Manchester United from Monaco ahead of the summer transfer deadline. It was the second Champions League goal of his career, but first in the tournament proper. He tallied a goal this past August for Monaco against Swiss side Young Boys during the qualifying rounds, helping the Ligue 1 side reach the group stage before his lucrative transfer to Manchester United. 

Manchester United now has four points through three games and trails first-place Wolfsburg in Group B by two points.
