The youngster, who went to the World Cup, scored in both games during last month’s international break, prompting many to suggest he should consider leaving Manchester United for more minutes.
But his performance against Croatia, during which the youngster missed two clear chances, led to a number of people laying into him for lacking cutting edge.
Sky Sports have confirmed this morning that Rashford will get another chance to impress in Seville against an in-form Spain side this evening.

You would think that Rashford, by the way he is treated, had played at the highest level for almost a decade as a seasoned professional.
The truth is that most players his age are still dwindling in the reserves, possibly coming on in a few League Cup games, and generally not doing much at all. The bar Rashford has set at the age of 20 is only matched by a very select, talented few.
He is admired for both club and country. Ed Woodward will never consider selling him; Jose Mourinho will keep playing him; and Southgate clearly sees him as a symbol for the future.
