England kicked off their World Cup campaign with an extremely dramatic victory against Tunisia.
The Three Lions certainly left it late, but credit where it’s due, Harry Kane put in a real clinical performance to ensure his country started with a victory.
In terms of Manchester United interest, both Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard started the game; the pair put in decent displays.
However, it was Marcus Rashford who made the biggest impact; albeit off the substitutes bench. The 20-year-old was brought on to stretch the game – and he certainly did that with his pace and energy. At this point, I’d also like to praise Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he was equally brilliant.
Following the game, Rashford took to Twitter to express his delight at making his World Cup debut. You get the feeling this is just the start for United’s #19.

After an excellent little cameo and a game against Panama coming up, I do wonder whether Rashford has played his way into a first World Cup start. This would certainly be the perfect opportunity.
I just feel much more confident with England when Rashford’s on the field. His game-changing ability is a rare commodity in the modern-day game, and it’s something that club and country should cherish.
