Marcus Rashford tweets heartfelt message after Euro 2020 final

Manchester United winger Marcus Rashford has taken to social media after Sunday’s Euro 2020 final. The 23-year-old was, unfortunately, the subject of abuse after missing one of England’s penalties.

Rashford was a late substitute in the 119th minute of the game, presumably solely to take part in the penalty shootout. The forward has a near-perfect record from 12 yards and was one of the players to score in the 2018 shootout against Colombia. But at Wembley, a brave and courageous Rashford saw his effort strike the post instead.

A mural of Rashford in Withington, Manchester was defaced in the aftermath of England’s loss to Italy but has now been redecorated with positive messages in support of Rashford, as seen below.

The message sent on his personal Twitter account is heartfelt, classy, and spoken like a man with wisdom beyond his years.

Rashford, who will make sure to fight for those who look up to him rather than succumb to racist trolls, is now set for a period away from football before returning to Manchester United for pre-season preparations.
