Playing style

Rashford possesses a powerful shot, also an energetic striker. He has the ability to play in a number of attacking roles, either as an out and out striker or in more of a No10 role.

The Manchester-born starlet has an eye for a spectacular goal and is a real threat at set-pieces.

While his explosive talent may still be somewhat raw, Rashford has progressed at an encouraging rate over the last 18 months.
