Interested in Language
With about ten minutes to go, United has taken the lead.
I saw this sentence in a grammar book. But I couldn't understand it.
Would you please clarify the blue part to me? I can't understand what it says.
I searched the blue sentence in forum but couldn't find any thread related to my question.

I have also taken a picture of the page. If you click here, you will see it.
Many thanks in advance.

It's more natural to say, read and hear '...United have taken the lead'.
