Marcus Rashford scores against Spain after stunning pass from Luke Shaw
This was the Manchester United pair at their best.
Marcus Rashford scored the fourth goal of his international career on Saturday night at Wembley. The Manchester United forward opened the scoring against Spain in England's opening game of the new Uefa Nations League tournament.
Rashford, who was sent-off in his last game for United against Burnley on Sunday, made a mark for positive reasons in this game.
The 20-year-old was set-up by his clubmate Luke Shaw, who was making his first international start in over a year.
After 11 minutes, Shaw surged down the left and curled a wonderful pass into Rashford, who buried it past David de Gea in the Spain goal.
Jose Mourinho, watching on from the stands in Wembley, seemed to enjoy the goal.

However, England's lead didn't last long.
Saul Niguez equalised after 13 minutes and Rodrigo put the visitors ahead in the 32nd minute with a brilliant deft finish at the near post.
