Manchester United midfielder Marcus Rashford has been included in Roy Hodgson’s final 23-man England squad for Euro 2016.
The youngster was playing in the U18 academy at Man United only a few months ago and has since proven himself by scoring in his Europa League, Premier League and England debuts.
He’s been in scintillating form throughout the campaign and has managed to persuade Hodgson he’ll be a valuable member to the team even though he has Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney and Jamie Vardy as the sides’s first-choice forwards.
It’s been a dream season for Rashford and in the space of a few months he’s gone from unknown to one of the countries most exciting young prospects.

His inclusion in the squad underlines how high he has risen in such a short space of time, it’s been the perfect fairytale and it looks like it will be continuing this summer in France.
Rashford went off to a standing ovation on his England debut, where he scored after just 138 seconds after the game started. He’s proven himself time and time again, he’s managed to score with his first shot in the Premier League, Europa League and for England.
He was given his first chance on United’s first-team when Anthony Martial picked up an injury in the warm-up against FC Midtjylland, he took it with both hands and has continued to knock down all expectations thrown at him since.
