Rashford matches Ruud van Nistelrooy's Man United record

Marcus Rashford matched Ruud van Nistelrooy's Manchester United record on Wednesday night during their Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain. 

The youngster struck United's only goal as they lost 3-1 against the Parisians, even though the night ended in disappointment after he was withdrawn after picking an injury. 

His goal on the night was his sixth of the current campaign, taking him to the top of the scoring charts alongside Erling Haaland and Alvaro Morata. 

Wednesday night's goal meant he had scored in three consecutive Champions League matches at Old Trafford, something Nistelrooy achieved during the 2004/05 season.

If he manages to shake off the injury and feature in next week's clash away to RB Leipzig, he could have a chance to write his own piece of history. 

The striker could become the first Englishman to hit seven Champions League goals in a single group stage for any side.
