Could Rashford Shine For Roy This Summer?

One thing you could never accuse Roy Hodgson of is being exciting, in fact it’s safe to say the England boss is probably the least charismatic manager the national side’s had since Steve McClaren. Credit where it’s due though as despite being something of a wet blanket the England manager isn’t afraid to give youth a chance and for the third successive tournament has picked a host of young players who could not only carry the nation forward in future years but also in the coming weeks.

The likes of Eric Dier, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane have been highly effective for their clubs this season and there’s every chance they’ll start this summer. One player who many consider too young to be a starter but someone who could do a job from the bench is United’s very own Marcus Rashford.

While no one would raise too many eyebrows if the 18 year old was used sparingly in France, it could be the ideal chance for Hodgson to surprise both Europe and his opponents by giving a youngster who’s full of form and confidence the chance to shine on the stage his talents deserve.

Rashford’s been a phenomenon these past few months, bagging a brace on his debut, his league debut and his England debut. The boy scores goals and correct me if I’m wrong that’s kind of the point of being a striker. Starting Rashford could be just the gamble that England need to upset the odds and finally put an end to that fifty year wait for a major trophy.

If you’re thinking of placing a bet on Roy’s Lions this Summer you can get decent odds at many sites, including .

Whether England succeed or don’t in France one thing’s for certain, Marcus Rashford has a bright future ahead of him for both club and country, the question is how long will he have to wait to be given the chance to shine?
