MARCUS RASHFORD

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford limped off the pitch in the 76′ last night of the Red Devils 1-0 win at Benfica with a knee problem, and as of right now, there isn’t any confirmed report on what the magnitude of this injury is.

He may or may not be in contention to face mid-table Huddersfield Town A.F.C. Saturday. What we do know about Rashford for sure is that he is a candidate for the UEFA Champions League player of the week award. You can go vote for him at the link below:

Marcus Rashford left the game injured 12 minutes after scoring this goal, an absolute beauty and the only scoring in the match. The young Englishman beat 18-year-old Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar, who was making his Champions League debut.

Here’s the footage:

The play drew rave reviews on social media all over the world, but I think this tweet put it best.
