It’s been a quiet season for Marcus Rashford, and the silence surrounding his goal-scoring record was beginning to overshadow the player known for his streaky form.
After a prolific run at the start of 2023 following the World Cup, where he netted 30 goals, Rashford seemed to have lost his touch this season, with just one goal to his name six weeks ago.
However, the international stage has rekindled his confidence. Playing for England against Italy, Rashford found the back of the net, restoring his signature flair.
The goal exemplified his style: Jude Bellingham initiated a counter-attack, providing Rashford the opportunity to cut inside and fire a shot into the bottom corner.
This goal carries particular significance for Rashford, given the painful memories of the last time England played Italy at Wembley during Euro 2020. England went on to win the game 3-1, with Harry Kane scoring twice.
Now, Manchester United fans eagerly await Rashford’s return to club football, hoping his restored confidence will translate into goals.
The response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive, with many declaring that “Marcus Rashford is BACK” and expressing their anticipation for a Rashford goal spree.
For Manchester United, Rashford’s goals have often been the key to victory, and his recent international performance offers a glimmer of hope for the team as they seek to improve their goal-scoring record this season.
