The teenager striker from Manchester United, Marcus Rashford, was chosen by Roy Hodgson to be part of England’s squad for the 2016 UEFA European Championship that will be held in France. 

Rashford is only 18 years old but managed a sensational international debut. He scored in the 2-1 friendly victory over Australia.

Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool’s striker, will join Marcus in France. Andros Townsend and Danny Drinkwater both missed the opportunity.

England has one last warm-up match with Portugal this Tuesday before starting the campaign in France. The first official encounter will be with Russia on June 11th, followed by Wales, on June 16th and Slovakia on June 20th.

Rashford signed with Manchester United a new four-year contract this Monday. He made his debut on February 25th and scored eight goals in 18 matches, making him the right contender for the international team.
