Hodgson hails Rashford impact

Debutant goalscorer could make squad for Euros

England manager Roy Hodgson has praised teenager Marcus Rashford and says the Manchester United youngster would not be out of place in anyone's squad for the European Championships.

Rashford scored within 138 seconds of his international debut as England beat Australia 2-1 at the Stadium of Light and looks set to force his way into Hodgson's final 23 for France which will be announced on Tuesday.

"The subject of Marcus Rashford, I guess, will chop a few trees down," Hodgson said after watching the Manchester United become England's youngest ever debutant scorer.

"What a debut. I'm pleased for him. But I wasn't surprised with the way he played. He was always one of the players who was seriously competing for a place in the 23 and he's done his chances of travelling with us no harm.

"He tired towards the end; he was obviously feeling the pace and intensity of the game and that's normal.

"Let's wait and see...I've got until Tuesday to name my squad but he wouldn't be out of place in anyone's 23.

"I'll have two or three more sleepless nights turning everything over in my head before I have to submit my list."

Midfielder Jordan Henderson was also impressed with Rashford's performance.

"It's incredible really isn't it? That's just the season that he's had, he has no fear and wants the ball all the time, and to be fair it was a great finish," he added.

"If he's given the opportunity I'm sure he'll do very well, but that's up to the manager."
