Marcus Rashford continued his phenomenal breakthrough season with a goalscoring and record breaking debut for England.
The 18-year-old’s goal for England within three minutes against Australia means he becomes the youngest ever goalscorer for England on his debut. After a dream season with Manchester United, nothing seems impossible for Rashford at the moment.
While his inclusion in the Euro 2016 preliminary squad might have been a surprise, Rashford has pretty much earned himself a spot on the plane to France and fans and journalists alike were thoroughly impressed.
Hodgson must take Rashford to the Euros. If he didn't there would be a such a deflation. But, even more so, he has to work on the defending

I think Ibrahimovic will sign purely for the opportunity to learn from Marcus Rashford.

Utd's week: Won FA Cup with 10 men in extra time, sacked LvG, appointed Mourinho, Rashford scored on England debut.
That's more like it.

Standing ovation for Marcus Rashford after a goalscoring international debut… 92 days after first club appearance. Bonkers but brilliant

I’ll be honest in saying I don’t want Rashford to go to France simply because I’m worried about him being thrown into the spotlight too soon but after seeing him play against Australia, who am I to say he isn’t ready?
Every wall that has been put in front of Rashford this season he has knocked down and there is every chance he could go to France and take centre stage for England in the best way possible. Let’s see what happens but after how he played on his debut for England, I’d now be more surprised if he didn’t go.
