Marcus Rashford is relishing the prospect of competing at World Cup 2018 with England.
Marcus Rashford believes the youthfulness in the England camp can be a huge plus point when they head to Russia for the World Cup this summer (England 16/1 – World Cup 2018).
Experience can be crucial but so can youthful exuberance and team bonding, and the Three Lions have plenty of the latter two as they prepare to play on the biggest stage of all.
Rashford seems a certainty to be named in Gareth Southgate’s 23-man party and the Manchester United star says the whole squad is buzzing with excitement.
“The England squad’s quite young, so there’s just a massive bundle of excitement buzzing around,” he said. “Everyone’s excited to just go there and do as best as we can.
“(Gareth Southgate has) brought a massive amount of freedom, especially to the forward players, but it’s within a structure.
“So, we have a baseline and we know what we’re doing. We know what our individual roles are, and we still need to learn and develop that.
“But yeah, it’s enjoyable playing under him and we just hope for the most success possible, in the World Cup.”
Meanwhile, Rashford has work to do with his club before he can fully focus on the World Cup. United are determined to hold to second place in the Premier League and win the FA Cup (Manchester United 9/4 – FA Cup outright).
“I think our main focus now is finishing second in the league,” Rashford added. “That’s important for us and winning the FA Cup.
“If those two things happen, then we’ve took what we can out of the season at this point. They’re the most important things.”
Odds subject to change.
