Just when you thought Marcus Rashford was going to find it impossible to get himself out of his goal-scoring rut, he goes and notches for England on Monday night.
The Manchester United striker has been in disappointing form all season at Old Trafford, netting just three goals in ten appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils. Anthony Martial’s injury has essentially forced him to shoulder the entire burden of leading the side’s front-line, and he has understandably struggled with the weight of it all.
But in a fantastic team performance from England in EURO 2020 qualifying action against Bulgaria, Rashford opened the scoring with a powerful drive from off the left flank. After seeing the 21-year-old’s goal, United fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the situation.
Many supporters of the Manchester side urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to take note from Gareth Southgate’s tactics, and use Rashford as a left-winger instead of a central striker.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Just seen Rashford’s goal. Very obvious now that Ole is holding him back and destroying him. Under Southgate, he plays well. Under Ole he plays badly. Just a few days and Southgate has improved and developed him. Ole is the problem.

Please Ole play Rashford on the left and Martial upfront. Please. It’s just common sense.
