Marcus Rashford (born 31 October 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and the England national team.
A Manchester United player from the age of seven, he scored two goals on both his first-team debut against Midtjylland in the UEFA Europa League in February 2016 and his Premier League debut against Arsenal three days later.
He also scored in his first Manchester derby match, his first EFL Cup match and his first UEFA Champions League match. With United, Rashford has so far won the FA Cup, EFL Cup, FA Community Shield and UEFA Europa League.
Goalkeeper David de Gea has hailed Manchester United's supporters for providing the energy the players needed to secure Saturday's last-gasp 1-0 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford.
United, who had beaten West Ham at the London Stadium back in September as a result of late drama, sealed all three points in the third and final minute of second half injury time, courtesy of Marcus Rashford's predatory instincts.
The United academy graduate, who had stepped off the bench just past the hour mark, found himself in the right place at the right time to tap home Edinson Cavani's low cross, sparking wild and jubilant scenes, both on the pitch and in the stands.
The win lifted United above West Ham and into the top-four for the first time since October, and De Gea, who had a relatively quiet afternoon between the sticks, believes the support from the stands in the closing stages provided United with the platform that they needed. "[The fans] keep pushing the team," De Gea told MUTV. "They keep shouting and that gave us a bit more energy at the end of the game. "They were great for the whole game, and they deserved the win." As outlined above, a second consecutive three-point haul lifted United up into the top-four, strengthening their chances of securing a place in the Champions League next season.Read more on manchestereveningnews.co.uk
