Does Marcus Rashford’s first-half display for England show just how much his career has stalled under Jose Mourinho?

The youngster is a different player when he throws on an England shirt

We bloody love Marcus Rashford.

The wonderkid is undoubtedly one of the most exciting young players in the Premier League these days and he could be the hero of England’s World Cup campaign this summer.

Not that we’re getting ahead of ourselves, or anything.

But the youngster endured a relatively frustrating season at Man United, where he’s been seemingly on the fringes under Jose Mourinho.

So much so, in fact, that there were rumours earlier in the year that his lack of game-time at United could harm he chances of making Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Still, he’s very much part of the 23-man squad and this evening he’s reminded us all just what he’s capable of in England’s pre-tournament friendly clash against Costa Rica.

Playing alongside Jamie Vardy in attack, the 20-year-old terrorised the Central American side’s defence by producing moments of skill that Ronaldinho would’ve been proud of.

Then he finished it all off by scoring an absolute worldie against Real Madrid’s Keylor Navas.

Seriously, check out this beauty.

With his freedom up front and confidence on the ball, there were a few on Twitter who couldn’t resist having a pop at Mourinho.

After all, Rashford’s rarely been given the chance to show off his talent under the Special One.

Food for thought, Jose?

If his display this evening has convinced you, then he’s priced at just £2.5m on Dream Team’s World Cup game.

Get him in your team, folks.
