Rashford scored on debut for England

Marcus Rashford scored on debut to hand England a win over Australia in preparations for Euro 2016 tournament.


Marcus Rashford scored two minutes into his England debut as the Three Lions defeated Australia 2-1 in a tune-up for this summer’s European Championship.

The young Manchester United striker scored in 178 seconds with a cool volley from Raheem Sterling deflect cross.

At 18, he is the youngest player to score on debut for his country, England.

Rashford received the starting opportunity due to a Daniel Sturridge injury earlier in the week as he tries to make his case for Euro 2016 inclusion.

Rashford was taken off in the 63rd minute to rousing applause from the appreciative fans at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland.

Rashford is behind only former Liverpool star Michael Owen (18 years and 164 days) and United captain Wayne Rooney (17 years 317 days) in the list of the youngest scorers in an England shirt.

The player must have cemented his place in the 23 man squad to compete in France for the European Championship.
