Manchester United fans were delighted with Marcus Rashford‘s impressive performance against LA Galaxy in the opening game of the pre-season tour of America.
The Englishman has opened the tour in the right way, finding the first goal of the game at the StubHub Center within the opening two minutes and then extending the lead with another goal in just under 20 minutes.
Especially with Romelu Lukaku’s arrival from Everton this summer, proving himself up front on the tour could be a vital way of securing more minutes over the course of the season.
Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.

The Portuguese boss has always backed Rashford, but it seems the youngster’s hard work over the holidays have massively paid off as he looks like a much stronger player, a clear improvement after all the muscle he’s put on.
The 19-year-old is still only at the start of his career and even though it may be hard to believe, especially after how many games he participated in last season, he’s still picking up experience and will only improve with every minute he continues to play under Mourinho.
