England manager Roy Hodgson has hinted that Marcus Rashford is under watch and may make his final squad to Euro 2016 in France in the summer.
The 18-year-old burst into the scene for Manchester United with two goals on his debut against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League and followed it up with two more in the 3-2 win over Arsenal last Sunday.
Rashford, who has only been capped at under-18 level for England got his Red Devils chance due to injury to Captain Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial but may break into the Three Lions squad for the Euros if he continues in his current form.
“I would neither rule him in or rule him out, I just hope he can do well,” Hodgson said.
“I have been watching Rashford for two years, so I have known about him for a long time. He is in our system.”
However, Hodgson hoped Rashford will be allowed to develop without added pressure.
“Most of all, I hope he is allowed to develop as an 18-year-old should and people don’t try to put him under enormous pressure,” he said.
“Scoring four goals in three games is a great achievement and if he can keep that up, it is great for Manchester United and England.”
