PLAYER TO WATCH: Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford (England)

On February 25 this year, 18-year-old Marcus Rashford awoke a virtual unknown. By the time he went to bed he was a sensation, having scored twice on his Manchester United debut in a 5-1 Europa League win over FC Midtjylland. More goals followed — a brace against Arsenal on his Premier League debut, a classy derby winner at Manchester City, a stunning effort at West Ham United in the FA Cup — and he ended the campaign with eight goals in 18 appearances, as well as an FA Cup winners’ medal around his neck. Manchester-born, he came through United’s youth academy and has won admirers everywhere with his athleticism and remarkable calmness in front of goal. After scoring within three minutes on his England debut against Australia, he was handed a surprise place in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad.
