England fans are getting giddy after Marcus Rashford’s screamer

What. A. Hit.

Stock up on the red and white face paint, England fans

Buy yourself a couple of those England flags for your car from the nearest petrol station; prepare to celebrate in your nearest town centre fountain.

Just don’t get carried away, whatever you do.

England’s World Cup campaign is tantalisingly close, and thanks to a Marcus Rashford screamer, their final warm-up game on home soil got off to a flyer.

With Costa Rica the visitors to Elland Road, Marcus Rashford decided to try a shot from distance with little over ten minutes played. Catching it sweetly, the ball dipped over Keylor Navas and into the net.


A hell of a goal, and all the excuse needed for some England fans to start getting ahead of themselves. Although we suspect most of the tweets below were tongue-in-cheek, on the surface at least it seemed English football fans were daring to dream.

You get the gist.
