Marcus Rashford In Tears At Full-Time After England Reach World Cup Semi-Final
On the 25th February 2016, a relatively unknown teenager introduced himself to world football with two goals in the Europa League.
The name Marcus Rashford suddenly rolled off the tongue like we had been uttering his name for years. On that special night in Manchester, a star was born.
Two years later, at the age of 20, the brilliant Marcus Rashford is truly living every kid's wildest dream.
He only made his international debut against Australia in 2016, but he will now play in the World Cup semi-final after goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli secured a historic quarter-final win against Sweden.
At the full-time whistle, Rashford couldn't contain his emotions and began to cry.
