The Scout: Marcus Rashford

Age: 19

Position: Forward

Club: Manchester United

Country: England

Watched: : England 2-1 Slovakia (Monday 4th September 2017)

Performance: 8 out of 10

Potential: 10 out of 10

Ok, so everyone knows his name and it doesn’t take a genius to spot that he’s got a big future in the game but aged just 19 (don’t forget) and making his professional debut just little over two and a half years ago this boy has as much right to be on this list as anyone else.

Rashford is a unique find and stormed on to the scene in February 2016 scoring twice on his Manchester United debut in the UEFA Cup aged just 17. Days after that he scored twice against Arsenal in his first Premier League fixture a stunning start in top level football which turned him in to an overnight superstar.

That same season he scored the winner against Manchester City in the derby, a striker with electric pace and at 6ft1in of good size and stature, his close control, willingness to run with the ball and audacity to carry out responsibility all outstanding qualities for one so young.

Little wonder how Rashford has already played 11 times for his country still as a teenager.

Rashford certainly has the power, the finishing, the explosiveness and ability to succeed, and we are certainly seeing the character from him too which suggests a positive young man that enjoys doing what he does. Whether the awaited progression from wide man to central striker will come before too long is much anticipated because football fans want to see the best players play in their best positions and Rashford certainly has the potential and attitude to be the best of the best.
