Marcus Rashford has enjoyed a meteoric rise since breaking onto the scene for Manchester United back in February and the striker further managed to enhance his burgeoning reputation by scoring only 135 seconds into his debut for the England national team in their 2-1 victory over Australia at Wembley on Friday night.
Apart from the goal, Rashford’s overall performance was also very good and he was handed a standing ovation by the crowd after coming off in the 63rd minute of the game for Ross Barkley.
Unsurprisingly, manager Roy Hodgson was left extremely pleased with Rashford’s display and has dropped a huge hint that he will be taking the 18-year-old to the European Championships in France, while the likes of Chris Smalling, Jordan Henderson and Wayne Rooney have all gone on to praise their young teammate as well.
Aston Villa star Jack Grealish was also following England’s game against Australia very closely and even the 20-year-old has now gone on to hail Rashford for his exploits on the night.

Rashford certainly does not looked fazed by the prospect of playing for England and it would probably be a risk worth taking for Hodgson to include the Manchester United youngster in the final 23-man squad heading to France.
