Kobbie Mainoo's dramatic late winner fired Manchester United to a stunning 4-3 win at Wolves as Marcus Rashford shook off any Belfast blues.
In 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, Rashford wrote an open letter to the UK government calling on them to end child poverty. He also successfully managed to lobby for a change in policy regarding the extension of free school meals in the school holidays.
Rashford was awarded the MBE for his charity work, but on the pitch he has FA Cup, Europa League and two League Cup winners' medals.
Career at Manchester United
At the age of seven, Rashford joined Manchester United's youth system, having previously spent a week training with Manchester City. He reportedly snubbed Liverpool and Everton to join the Red Devils.
Rashford was thrown into first team action in a UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie against Midtjylland in February 2016 due to an injury picked up by Anthony Martial in the warm-up. He impressed immediately, scoring two goals on his debut in a 5-1 win.
Three days later, Rashford made his Premier League debut against Arsenal, scoring two goals and providing the assist for the other in a 3-2 win for Manchester United.
Injuries, dips in form, and Manchester United's fall from grace perhaps put the brakes on Rashford becoming a true star on the world stage. But he still made his 250th appearance for the club in February 2021 and ended the season with 11 Premier League goals and 11 assists.
The England national team
In the final himself, he was a late substitute in extra-time with the penalty shootout in mind. However, he was one of three players (along with Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka) to miss from the spot as Italy won the trophy at Wembley.
He continues to use his platform to push the UK government to adopt policies which would enable children from underprivileged backgrounds to be fed adequately.
Marcus Rashford's net worth
