Marcus Rashford ‘should use England form’ to cement Man Utd place

Marcus Rashford ‘should use England form’ to cement Man Utd place

We've a sneaking suspicion this won't go down too well with Manchester United supporters.

Several clubs have shown interest in signing the United youth product in recent months, especially after Jose Mourinho appeared reluctant to start him week in and week out in the 2017/18 campaign.

The problem that Rashford faces is Romelu Lukaku, who is seen as the first-choice striker. When Rashford did feature, the majority of his appearances came on the left wing.

While the 20-year-old featured regularly and was nearly always in the matchday squad, he wants more regular action.

The report claims, however, that Manchester United will reject any attempts to prize Rashford away on a temporary basis.

He scored his third global goal for England during an impressive performance in the final World Cup warm-up game against Costa Rica earlier this month and will hope that a strong tournament in Russian Federation will show to Mourinho and United how important he can be.

The forward recently impressed in England's 2-0 win over Costa Rica in their last friendly ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. Shooting from distance, Real Madrid's Keylor Navas was powerless to prevent the dipping effort from finding the back of his net (not that Lee Dixon agreed).

Gareth Southgate selected him as part of his 23-man travelling party and he is now in deep contention to start in Monday's opener against Tunisia after a stunning performance against Costa Rica last week.

Harry Kane, who was recently named Three Lions captain, didn't feature in the game at Elland Road and is expected to be deployed as the lone striker when England kick off in Russian Federation next week.
