The rise of Marcus Rashford – How Manchester United starlet went from rookie to rock star

28 May

What a 13 weeks it’s been for Marcus Rashford!

Plucked from the Manchester United youth ranks to provide cover in Louis van Gaal’s injury-ravaged squad, the 18-year-old only made his senior professional debut in February and is now on the brink of making England’s Euro 2016 squad.

After scoring four goals in his first two games for the Red Devils and netting the winner in his first Manchester derby, Rashford made the headlines again on Friday by finding the net just 138 seconds into his senior England debut.

Scores with his first shot in Europe, scores with his first shot in the Premier League and scores with his first shot in an England shirt – it’s been a crazy four months for the youngster.

And here, talkSPORT have plotted his astonishing rise from rookie to Old Trafford rock star.

Check out the gallery above, and videos below, to look back on Rashford’s sensational start to his career…
