Marcus Rashford takes just over 2 minutes to score on England debut

What a start!

Tom Victor

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

Plenty were convinced he now has to go to the Euros

He’s come a long way

Though Mourinho-flavoured cynicism soon took over

And he wasn’t the only Manchester-based youngster to score
