Marcus Rashford was the talk of the footballing world on Tuesday night following his emphatic hat-trick for England’s U21 side against Norway, with many fans convinced he is now the future star for both Manchester United and England.
Dropped by new England manager Sam Allardyce last week due to a lack of Premier League game time for United, Rashford shrugged off the disappointment of demotion with yet another ridiculous debut performance that saw him dominate again up front.
Extending the statistic that has seen the 18-year-old score on his debut in the Europa League, the Premier League, his England debut and, now, his first appearance for the U21 side, the Manchester United academy graduate has once again made a grand statement about his importance to José Mourinho’s title ambitions this term.
Having seen his starting place threatened by the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rashford has featured only sparingly so far this term. His match-winning goal against Hull last weekend was another timely reminder that despite his age, the young striker could well be one of United’s most important assets for the future success of the Old Trafford club.
While Allardyce and Mourinho may still require some convincing, it seems fans have already made up their minds – they absolutely love Marcus Rashford.
