Marcus Rashford knows he needs a big World Cup this summer to get the critics off his back, and, of course, prove his worth to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

These are the sort of chances Rashford needs to take if he’s to have a key role in Russia this summer. Hopefully, he can add another to his tally tonight.

Watch the above clip to see the goal. A thunderbolt of a strike.
