Marcus Rashford, the 18-years-old striker of Manchester United, had a decisive performance in the match against West Ham United this Wednesday.
The striker scored the opening goal, adding it to a total of six in his 11 appearances for the club. The successful result of 2-1 set the team on its way to a fist Wembley appearance since 2013.
Rashford debuted in the Europa League on February 25th. He did not take the opportunity for granted but displayed a big-game temperament, scoring twice on his debut against FC Midtjylland and in his second match against Arsenal.
Louis van Gal was impressed by the remarkable results and the excitement shown by this local player.
Carrick, satisfied by the young striker’s performance, declared “It’s so good to see young lads come in and do well and take their chances.” “Not in his wildest dreams could he have predicted what’s happened to him in the last two or three months and he has kept his feet on the ground.”
