Marcus Rashford always prompted the supporters to drop their jaws with his sublime pieces of skills and his overwhelming performances.

Although his age runs low in terms of numbers, the England international’s contributions to the Mancunian club has proved to be quite noisy.

Accordingly, the 20-year-old has yet again impressed the fans by registering a brace against Liverpool in his side’s recent clash. His performance particularly stood out conspicuously, which urged the gaffer to even praise his talents post-match.

Peculiarly, Cristiano Ronaldo, while he was enjoying his spell under Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester, happened to have scored a goal almost identical to Rashford’s, way back in 2007.

The youngster netted the strike with one less touch than the Ballon d’Or laureate, but nonetheless, the similarity is way too unreal to even believe.

Furthermore, it should be stressed that it’s not the first time he’s being compared to the likes of Cristiano, having scored a splendid free-kick last campaign. The majestic strike had provided his side with the lead, and an advantage in the tie as a whole against Celta Vigo.

Moreover, back in 2016, United legend Paul Scholes had also stated: “You’ve not seen any yet, but Rashford hits free kicks in a dipping fashion, almost the way Cristiano Ronaldo does.”
