‘He looked an amazing talent’, Man United fans react to Rashford’s performance for England

Manchester United supporters reacted positively to Marcus Rashford’s performance for England on Thursday night. The 20-year-old showed glimpses of his immense potential during the friendly game against Costa Rica and his outrageously stunning long-range goal has surely given Gareth Southgate a selection headache.

From right from the off, United’s number 19 set the game alight and he was a constant threat to the opposition despite bagging just a solitary goal on the night. The United graduate has been more of a substitute during Southgate’s reign but Rashford has given the manager something to think about prior to the World Cup opener.


Judging by some of the tweets, United boss Jose Mourinho has been put to blame for the Englishman’s average showing at club level but the youngster could equally be considered at fault for his showing.

There is no doubt Rashford has exceptional talent with the fearlessness in his style of play but he has not quite maintained the consistency with United with the allocated gametime on the pitch.

Nevertheless, Rashford had a relative good 2017/18 season with 13 goals and eight assists and his tally was only bettered by Romelu Lukaku, who was the regular choice in the centre-forward position.

At 20, Rashford is only starting to mature into a top-class performer and a good performance at the World Cup may enhance his confidence further ahead of the next league campaign.
