England boss Roy Hodgson has revealed that Manchester United star Marcus Rashford will not likely be part of the squad for the upcoming European competition.
The 18-year-old has been in sensational form ever since scoring a brace on his senior debut in the 5-1 win over FC Midtjylland.
He also scored another two goals while providing one assist against Arsenal when he started his first ever Premier League match.
Despite his form, Hodgson admitted that Rashford is not expected to feature at the Euros because he cannot afford to drop another striker to make room for his addition.
“I think it would be a very bold decision to put him in and I think it would mean possibly leaving someone behind who, at the moment in my opinion, has more reason to be called up,” he is quoted by the Express.
“I am sure if there was enough spaces available and if we were taking 30, we’d certainly probably be considering him.
“But when it’s 23 and we’ve already got a bit of a headache with the front players in terms of who can we take, deciding who might we have to leave out to put another one in who is 18 years of age and has four or five games is asking a lot.”
After continuing his good run of form, he is also set to start against Everton in the FA Cup semi-final this weekend.
Rashford has already featured 13 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far managing to score seven goals while providing another one assist in the process.
