Rashford will never be a striker at Manchester United - Shearer

Many changes for Luis Enrique's debut

Shaw had only made one substitute appearance under Southgate before Saturday evening, when the full-back took his improved Manchester United form onto the worldwide stage.

Playing out from the back rather than hoofing clear, England worked the ball to Kane who then found the marauding Shaw on the left and his pass was flawless for Rashford to slot past his Manchester United team mate De Gea.

The 20-year-old claimed his fourth global goal from a superb arcing low cross from Luke Shaw to put Gareth Southgate's side into the lead.

Mourinho has given the youngster a little playing time at Old Trafford this season and the Three Lions' coach, while addressing reporters after England game at Wembley, said,"He (Rashford) is got a tremendous mentality, he's got great talent and we think he's got everything to go on and be a top player". The match is the first for either in the Nations League (as explained here) and it features some of the Premier League's top players going up against many of La Liga's stars.

Even if Lukaku did not play, my money would be on Alexis Sanchez being moved into the middle and further forward.

'And would Mourinho really turn to Rashford if he needed another striker?




'Rashford has been played so long in a wide position in a three, that it does take time to readjust to his natural position.

If he wants to achieve an ambition to be recognised as a great goalscorer it is just not going to happen there.

Gareth Southgate handed starts to Marcus Rashford in the attack as Raheem Sterling missed out through injury, while there was also a start for defenders Luke Shaw and Joe Gomez.

But the United forward squandered a chance to equalise late on as he was put through on goal but struck his effort straight at David De Gea. It is a great club to be at. "It was a great finish".

But Mannick told The Football Show that Rashford needs to prove he is good enough to play as a striker, and to do that he needs to start scoring more goals.
