But that made no difference to his proud mum and dad, who soaked in the special moment from behind the dugout.
Garnacho’s mum filmed the event with a huge, beaming smile across her face.
Next to her the youngster’s father applauded his son and was forced to wipe away tears of pride at Garnacho’s achievement.
His parents may soon get used to seeing the winger feature at Old Trafford as he has a very bright future ahead of him.
Garnacho first announced himself onto the scene by scoring a fine goal for United under-18s in the FA Youth Cup in February.
Garnacho was born in Madrid and has represented Spain at youth level but Argentina rate him very highly already and are keen to steal him away.
And in Ralf Rangnick Garnacho has a manager who places trust in youth – with Anthony Elanga enjoying his breakthrough into the first-team under the German.
Erik ten Hag has also promoted several youngsters to the Ajax senior team in recent years, including Donny van de Beek, Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt.
That means Garnacho could get plenty more first-team football once the Dutchman arrives as Ten Hag seeks to rebuild the club.
