Teenage sensation Marcus Rashford has scored a hattrick on his England U21s debut.
Rashford has represented England on the U16, U18 and U20 levels before this, whilst also featuring for the senior squad.
Born in Wythenshawe, Manchester, Rashford began playing football for Fletcher Moss Rangers at the age of five, and joined the academy system at Manchester United at the age of seven.
He gradually progressed through the ranks at Manchester United. He made his Manchester United senior team debut under the then Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal.
His debut came in the Europa League game against FC Mitjylland, after French striker Anthony Martial picked up an injury during the warm up.
Rashford scored twice in his Europa League debut, and then went on to score twice again in his Premier League debut against Arsenal, just three days after the Europa League game.

He was selected in the England squad for the Euros by the then manager Roy Hodgson. He made a total of two appearances, but earned a lot of plaudits from fans and pundits. England’s new manager Sam Allardyce, however, decided to drop Rashford for the recent World Cup qualifying fixtures.
Rashford made his U21s debut today against Norway today. The 18-year-old striker opened the scoring after he showed amazing speed to get on the end of Nathan Chalobah’s pass and finished it neatly.
