Marcus Rashford capped off a wonderful England U21s debut by posing with his man of the match trophy and the match ball after a wonderful hat-trick.

The 18-year-old got England off the mark with his first goal after 30 minutes and followed it with a wonderful effort in the second half, before finishing it by burying a penalty with an ice cool finish.

As far as a debut goes, it doesn’t get much better than that from Rashford and you can see how much it meant to him – just look at the expression on his face.

In all seriousness, Rashford has taken everything in his stride so far in his career like it’s simply a walk in the park. Nothing has overawed Marcus; from scoring on his Europa League debut to following it up with a brace against rivals Arsenal just a few days later to scoring on his senior England and U21s debut. The kid is born for it and United fans are loving it.

Things are on the up for Rashford who has had a stellar start with four goals in just 110 minutes of competitive football this season and heading into the Manchester derby this weekend, Rashford has send a big statement to Jose Mourinho which could see him find a place in our starting XI.
