Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed the biggest moment in his England career.
The 22-year-old has been on a steady rise for both club and country and in an interview with Sky Sports, Rashford said his penalty against Colombia in the World Cup has been his biggest highlight in the England jersey.
“I know it doesn’t count as a goal but it would be the penalty against Colombia in the shootout. That was probably the biggest moment.
“England as a nation hadn’t won in a penalty shootout in a long time and we always spoke about that as a team, changing the perception of what the England national team plays like.
“We just wanted to be ourselves and create our own style and even if we lost that game, we wanted to lose it playing the way we play. That was a massive moment and big for the team going through on a penalty shootout,” Rashford said.
England went to win the shootout with a 4-3 scoreline; the first time they have done so at a World Cup.
Rashford was handed his England debut at the age of 18 by head coach Roy Hodgson a friendly v against Australia with the player going on to score in the game.
He has gone to cement a regular place in the team in the England team and was to be one of the most vibrant players in the forthcoming Euros after scoring 14 goals and assisting four in 22 league ties before getting an injury.
