Thursday night’s resounding Europa League victory against Danish outfit FC Midtjylland meant Manchester United will now face bitter rivals Liverpool in the last 16. However, United are commonly for breeding young talent through their famed academy, with the ‘Class of 92’ containing the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and the Neville brothers typifying the quality of the academy.
Last Thursday saw an unknown attacker bag himself a brace. Keep an eye on Marcus Rashford for the future. In a game against lesser opposition a few days ago, no shock waves waved through the systems of many people, just the positive acknowledgement of a young player who ‘could’ make it. This is a player who once scored 12 goals in 10 minutes in a youth tournament with local side Fletcher Moss Rangers.
That word ‘could’ is quickly becoming into ‘should’ as Rashford bagged himself another brace against Arsenal and proved he can cut it against the very best. Cue a Twitter frenzy for this exciting talent.
