It has been an incredible couple of years for Marcus Rashford. From the depths of Manchester United’s reserves to England international and Premier League sensation, the 19-year-old has been a revelation.
Thursday evening’s World Cup qualifying game between England and Slovenia also demonstrated Rashford’s unrivalled talents. In an otherwise dreadful game of football, the youngster was superb and demonstrated his insatiable talents against an extremely resilient Slovenian defence.
The 19-year-old’s performance was particularly noticeable given the fact that almost all of England’s other players were tremendously disappointing on the night.
Despite missing a relatively clear cut opportunity, Rashford has surely cemented himself as a starter in Gareth Southgate’s team and will almost certainly be a key player when England head to Russia for the 2018 World Cup next summer.
Manchester United fans watching the game were quick to take to social media to praise their man after his phenomenal performance for the country.
Rashford is only thing that's enjoyable to watch England water is wet.
