Roy Hodgson not to give United Ace Rashford a chance to play in Euro 2016


  • Teenage terror Rashford is the talk of English football after bursting onto the team with six goals already, having played only 11 games. The Manchester United sensation showed his potential with another stunning strike on Wednesday night to help sink West Ham in the FA Cup.

    The current form of the 18-year-old will make it tough for Roy Hodgson to choose his striking option for the Euro 2016 fixtures, and he may get a chance if he gets lucky.

    But DailyStar reports Roy most probably will not take the youngster in his team, at least not this early. Roy Hodgson has been monitoring Rashford and his brilliant form this season and he knows his talents very well. But Roy thinks he is still too inexperienced and doesn’t consider taking someone like him to a major tournament who is yet to win an under-21 cap.

    Rashford has represented England at under-16 and under-18 levels and has made just one appearance for the under-20s.

    While going to the 1998 World Cup Michael Owen was only 18, Theo Walcott is another example of such quality at a very young age. Walcott was only 17 when he made his senior team debut with only 13 Premier League appearances for Arsenal.

    The deadline for squad submission is May 12 and Roy already has enough options for the striker position, with the skipper Wayne Rooney remains certain to travel, along with stars like Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and obviously Daniel Sturridge, with Danny Welbeck and Walcott also as his options.

    Though Michael Carrick has other views about the youngster, according to him Marcus is the real deal and said: “I don’t think he’s a flash in the pan. I think he’s here to stay.”

    On the other hand, Louis Van Gaal’s future is yet to be decided and Jose Mourinho is most probably the one who will be replacing the Manchester United boss, even if he gets a chance to succeed Paris Saint-Germain boss, if Blanc gets sacked.
