Marcus Rashford scores on England U21s debut against Norway

Marcus Rashford scored just 30 minutes into his England U21s debut against Norway.

The 18-year-old striker latched on to a ball in behind the Norway defence and once he set off there was no stopping him because his pace is frightening, just like his finishing, and he coolly found the corner of the net.

Here is a video of Rashford’s goal for England’s U21s against Norway:

Rashford has made it a habit to score on a debut. He did so for Manchester United debut in the Europa League, his first Premier League appearance and his senior England debut as well. Attach as many superlatives to that as you’d like, they all apply.

There would have been plenty of people calling Rashford a flash in the pan after his breakthrough campaign last year but he’s continued to develop at a phenomenal rate since May and it’s going to be wonderful to continue watching his rise this season under Jose Mourinho.
