Rashford set to make move back to England senior side


The striker was left out of the first-team squad when Sam Allardyce made his first call-ups last month

Marcus Rashford is set to be called back up to the England first-team this week.

According to reports from The Express, the amazing start that the striker has had to his season for Man United has thrown his name back into the reckoning for a call-up to the senior side.

Sam Allardyce made him play for the Under-21 side instead last month but with the forward continuing to bag the goals for the Red Devils – despite still being just 18-years old – he is set to make the move back into the senior side picture.

Rashford looked set to spend a lot of this year on the sidelines at the beginning of the season. He couldn’t break into the side, with Ibrahimovic, Martial and co all instead getting the nod.

Harry Kane out injured

However, when given the chance to shine he took it yet again and he’s now pushed other players onto the sidelines, while he plays regularly.

This regular action and consistent goalscoring form has forced England boss Sam Allardyce to bring him back into the first-team picture for the national side, especially now Harry Kane is out with an injury.

The youngster should be more than capable to make the step-up – when he has featured for the side in the past, including briefly at the Euros in the summer, he impressed many with his focus and level head despite his inexperience on the world stage and young age and he continues to perform superbly.

However, Sam Allardyce might not end up being the manager who makes the call to bring him back into the first-team picture. Unless the FA decide to just give Allardyce a warning for his actions in taking payment over third-party ownership (See that story here) or wait until after the next international fixtures, he might not be the England boss for much longer.
