And so the Marcus Rashford fairytale continues…
The Manchester United sensation took only two minutes and 15 seconds to mark his England debut against Australia with a goal which could book him a place in Roy Hodgson’s squad for Euro 2016.
Raheem Sterling’s deflected cross looped up into the air and dropped kindly for Rashford, but the teenager still needed to show great composure and technique to fire home his volley.

Given the occasion and the pre-match attention on him, it would have been easy for Rashford to swing wildly and send the ball into row Z at the Stadium of Light, but this kid does not feel pressure.
At 18 years and 208 days old, Rashford is the youngest player to ever bag on his Three Lions bow. He also scored on his Europa League and Premier League debuts for United – both within the last four months.
Get him on the plane and let him bring the trophy home.
