Rashford has already made his mark in International football

At the age of 20, Rushford is one of the most promising youngsters in England. In May 2016, thanks to his goal, England defeated Australia 2-1 and he became the youngest English player ever to score in his very first match.

Rashford also holds the incredible feat of scoring in each of his debuts in almost all major domestic and international competitions for Manchester United. He has also scored in his very first Manchester derby.

The 2017/18 English Premier League was also a decent one for the youngster. He was pretty impressive throughout the season despite being the second choice behind Lukaku. He scored a total of 13 goals, 3 of which came in the European stage.

There is a probability that Southgate will pair him up with Kane and Sterling up front. But even if Jamie Vardy starts, he will surely feature as a substitute. There is a lot of expectation on the young striker and he has all the required firepower to succeed in the ultimate stage.
