England’s 2-1 victory over Australia posed a lot more questions than answers for England manager Roy Hodgson.
The biggest question though now looms over Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford. The teenager has had an amazing few months netting goals for fun at his club and then scoring for his country after just 138 seconds.
The teenager is making waves in the Premiership and for all the right reasons, his composure last night when taking the goal, was classy.
England at the moment have a wealth of strikers at their disposal. Although with both Welbeck and Sturridge injured Rashford has a golden opportunity.
Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Wayne Rooney will surely be among the touring party when Hodgson cuts his squad. Hodgson must be considering the youngster with Defoe the only other real option.
The doubters would argue that Rashford is too young. Is that really a reason to stifle such talent? Would a summer in France not help rather than hinder the striker?
England are lucky with the group they have been drawn in Wales, Slovenia and Russia should not be troubling England.
This gives Roy Hodgson an opportunity to try some things out why can’t one of them be Marcus Rashford?
In this country when it comes to sport we seem to have this psychological block steering us away from picking young players. Not just in football but rugby, cricket and so on.
Surely if he is good enough he is old enough, the time is now for young Rashford. Surely Roy Hodgson has to give the 18 year old finisher a chance to impress.
