Marcus Rashford has stunning 45 minutes vs West Ham

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford may not have been fully fit leading up to the clash vs West Ham but it hardly showed.

The sensational Englishman was part of a double substitution at half-time that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made in a bid to inspire his players.

It ended up being the right call as both Bruno Fernandes and Rashford player their part in United roaring back at West Ham in the second half.

The academy graduate scored his side’s third goal in the 3-1 comeback victory, helping consolidate the lead and make things more comfortable.

Rashford has been one of the Red Devils’ better performers this season and the hope is he can continue to develop into a talismanic star.

Hopefully Solskjaer’s gamble to bring on an injured Rashford doesn’t backfire in a long-term sense and he’s able to keep fit for an extended period of time.

It’s understood the versatile attacker is suffering from some shoulder pain and the sooner he’s fully fit the better.

Now it’s still manageable and there’s no major concern but football is a physical sport and it’s not tough to imagine he could aggravate it further and end up being ruled out for a month or so.

Edinson Cavani has made quite an impact since his deadline day arrival at Old Trafford, but how much do you know about our other South American players, past and present? Take our quiz below to find out!
