Marcus Rashford for England’s Euro 2016 Squad

Roy Hodgson, manager for the England National Squad had hinted at the possibility of including Marcus Rashford into the team ahead of their Euro 2016 campaign.

The Manchester United teen was just 18 when he scored twice in his Europa League debut against FC Midjytlland and 2 more against Arsenal in his Premier League debut.

However, he did not score in the mid-week match against Watford, and has only featured for England in their under-18 squad.

“I would neither rule him in or rule him out, I just hope he can do well,” Hodgson said.

“I have been watching Rashford for two years, so I have known about him for a long time. He is in our system.”

He added he was delighted that an England Under-18 player was getting chances in Manchester United’s first team.

“Most of all, I hope he is allowed to develop as an 18-year-old should and people don’t try to put him under enormous pressure,” he said.

“Scoring four goals in three games is a great achievement and if he can keep that up, it is great for Manchester United and England.”

Rashford came into Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United amidst an injury plagued team, with forwards Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial unable to play. Still, he looks set to remain a part of the first team at Old Trafford as he impresses everyone with his skill and unprecedented maturity.
