Manchester United starlet ruled out of Euro 2016; forward set to be overlooked

According to reports, England manager Roy Hodgson looks set to resist the temptation to invite Manchester United starlet Marcus Rashford to Euro 2016.

The Mirror report that the Red Devils wonderkid will be overlooked for the European Championships, even if he has been one of the most impressive English forwards in the Premier League in recent weeks.

The teenager burst onto the scene against FC Midtjylland when he scored twice to save the Red Devils from a humiliating Europa League elimination.

This was followed up with a brace and an assist against Arsenal as the Red Devils ended a troubled spell by putting Arsene Wenger’s title hopefuls to the sword with a 3-2 victory.

Since then, Rashford has struggled to keep up with his early form, managing just one goal in his subsequent eight matches—even if it was the winner in a 1-0 derby victory over Manchester City.

He was hauled off at half time in United’s 3-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday—suggesting that calls to introduce him to the national side may be premature—but responded with a goal as the Red Devils saw off West Ham United to reach the FA Cup semi-final on Tuesday.
