Manchester United fans react to Marcus Rashford’s excellent England cameo

As we all know, we’re without domestic football for one more week, until Manchester United return with a home game against West Bromwich Albion. Before that, though, we had to endure one final England match; as the Three Lions hosted Lithuania at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate chose to name a starting eleven without any Red Devils in it, so immediately my attention towards the match began to dwindle. I was given a new lease of life when Marcus Rashford was brought on off the bench midway through the second half, though, and the young man from Wythenshawe really proved his worth.

From the outset, he began to wreak havoc on Lithuania’s tiring back line as he used that excellent turn of pace to beat his man more often than not. Perhaps the most surprising part of his game was just how accurate his passing was, and he could have easily walked away with an excellent assist if Jamie Vardy could have finished a chance when one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

It was a nice little run out for our 19-year-old striker, and nice again he acquitted himself very well. It would have definitely caught Jose Mourinho’s attention, and the United manager could well be tempted to give a start to the young man next weekend.

As you’d imagine, the Old Trafford faithful were delighted with the performance of their young star, and took to social media to show that.
