Who is Marcus Rashford?

Marcus Rashford is an English professional footballer. The young footballer scored in his first-team debut at the ‘UEFA Europa League,’ followed by another score in his first ‘Premier League’ against ‘Arsenal’ in February 2016. He continued his streak of scoring in his debut in the ‘Manchester derby match,’ the ‘League Cup,’ and the ‘UEFA Champions League.’

Marcus, the “wonder kid” of the English football league, was a natural at attacking his opponents with powerful shots since an early age. He was only 5 when he started playing the sport, and by the time he was 7, he was already making his way through the academy system of the prestigious club ‘Manchester United.’

He also played for the ‘Under-16,’ the ‘Under-18,’ the ‘Under-20,’ and the ‘Under-21’ international teams before starting his senior career as a forward with ‘Manchester United.’ In May 2016, Marcus also became the youngest player of England to score in his first international match as a senior. His mind-blowing performances in almost all of his matches helped him get selected for the ‘UEFA Euro 2016.’

He broke Wayne Rooney’s ‘UEFA Euro 2004’ record by four days, to become the youngest player ever to represent England at the ‘European Championships.’ He did so by debuting at the age of 18, as a substitute for Adam Lallana, in a 2–1 win over ‘Wales’ at the ‘UEFA Euro 2016.’

As a senior, he scored his first goal against Slovakia in the 2018 ‘FIFA World Cup.’ His team won 2–1, with a winning goal scored by Rashford.
