Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has rightfully been receiving praise for his goalscoring performance for England on Sunday evening.
The sensational academy product is a different beast as a left-winger than a striker and supporters have quickly begun to acknowledge that.
Rashford’s return to the flanks has seen him regain his form and confidence, showing once more just why he was considered to be one of the world’s brightest prospects.
Despite his good display for England, United fans would be more pleased if he can return fit from international duty to do the same for his club.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s men face off against a stubborn Sheffield United side and will need Rashford at his best to take them apart.
Watching Rashford play with confidence is great. Go on Marcus! ????

There’s hope yet that Rashford can flourish as a striker too but that’s only going to happen as part of a two-striker formation which is something Solskjaer alluded to in the past.
It’s clear he’s not the man to singlehandedly lead Manchester United’s attack, at least just yet.
He could potentially grow into that role but in truth fans are happy with where he’s playing now as it allows him to strike up a devastating partnership with Anthony Martial.
