Marcus Rashford Ruins Lewis Dunk During His First England Training Session

Marcus Rashford Ruins Lewis Dunk During His First England Training Session

Jose Mourinho said Marcus Rashford was "sad on the pitch" against Newcastle prior to being taken off at Old Trafford, but he looked in a very different mood in England training.

In the last international break, the 20-year old scored in both games against Spain and Switzerland and actually has more goals for country than club this season - having scored just once in seven games for United.

He looks much happier in an England shirt and going off recent footage of his finishing, you wouldn't best against him adding to his international goals tally in the next batch of UEFA Nations League games.

As shown in a clip from Hayters, Rashford had a one-vs-one, attacker vs defender battle and he absolutely smashed it.


There were six different duels with Chilwell and it was Rashford who came out on top on each occasion - regularly turning his marker inside and out and finishing emphatically.

He displays an ability to go either side and also unleashes two unstoppable strikes from distance into the top bins. It's all very encouraging to see from Rashford after a relatively difficult period.

Most importantly though, Gareth Southgate is a big believer in Rashford and showered him with praise last month - even comparing him to Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He is a special talent," Southgate said as per the Daily Mail.

"We have to remember that Harry Kane at that age had hardly played anywhere near the matches for Spurs.

"You can even compare it to some of those other top players who have broken through.

"Some of the step-overs and things Ronaldo was doing at that age [were remarkable], but Ronaldo wasn't converting them into the same number of goals. So we have got to give Marcus time to develop."

Should Rashford start for England?
