Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford netted a superb opener against West Ham.

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford scored a sensational opening goal against West Ham in the last ever FA Cup tie at Upton Park.

Rashford had a quiet game against Tottenham in the Premier League at the weekend but retained his starting place, with captain Wayne Rooney on the bench as he returned from injury.

Rashford, 18, made his debut for the club last month and instantly impressed, and netted an outstanding goal against West Ham to break the deadlock which left goalkeeper Darren Randolph with no chance.

His opening goal was his sixth strike in 11 appearances for the Red Devils, and had former United defender Gary Neville exclaiming in delight on twitter, as well as Match of the Day host Gary Lineker.

Neville is the England assistant boss and the strike will have sparked the debate as to whether he should be a surprise selection for the Three Lions this summer at Euro 2016, but the competition for places from rival Premier League stars should make this one tournament too soon for the teenager.
