Marcus Rashford takes just over 2 minutes to score on England debut
Marcus Rashford had a dream start to his England career, scoring inside three minutes of his first appearance for his country.
The Manchester United striker became the youngest ever debut goalscorer for his country when he volleyed in at the near post to beat Maty Ryan.
He follows international team-mate Harry Kane in scoring on his England debut, and the goal improves his claim for a spot in Roy Hodgson's final 23-man squad for this summer's European Championships in France.
The initial reaction was one of all-caps excitement
MARCUS RASHFORD. PLACE CONFIRMED.

If Rashford isn't the first name on the England team sheet in France we don't deserve to win a damn thing

He's come a long way
Rashford didn’t have a Wikipedia page three months ago.

Though Mourinho-flavoured cynicism soon took over
Marcus Rashford is living the dream. Where will Mourinho loan him out in August?

Rashford's gonna be a hell of a player for whoever Mourinho sells him to.
