Manchester United star Ashley Young has backed his team-mate Marcus Rashford to light up this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Young, who has been selected in the England squad for next months tournament despite spending several year in the international wilderness, is backing Rashford to have a major impact for his country.
Young also revealed that he has been watching Rashford since he was a kid in United’s youth ranks and always knew he would become a top player.
“I think he’s going to cope really well.
“I’ve said it from the time I saw him in the youth team – he’s got a massive future ahead of him. He’s a fantastic player and if he keeps going the way he is, he can set the world alight.
“It’s the World Cup coming up and that could be his stage to show everybody just how far he’s come from when he made his debut.
“I think if you look at the goals he has scored on how many different debuts, it just shows in itself he steps up in the big games and he can produce.
“He’s definitely been fantastic for us at United and he’s definitely going to be a major player for us at the World Cup.”
