Kewell hoping Rashford gets England chance against Belgium

Former Liverpool star Harry Kewell hopes Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford starts for England in today's World Cup clash with Belgium.

Rashford has been on the bench for both of England's two World Cup games but could get the nod today against Belgium.

“I like Marcus Rashford. He's a fantastic talent with bundles of pace and he just doesn't care who he plays against," Crawley Town boss Kewell told the Daily Express.

“He just wants to play and prove - not just to himself - that he is good enough.

“He's got a wonderful strike on a ball, an eye for goal, electrifying pace. He can take people on and scare people. And I like players like that.

“For me I'd love to see Rashford start. But it's so easy to sit at home and not see them day-in day-out.

“There may be something in the squad that's happening, he may be carrying something.

“But I also like Jamie Vardy. He's a fantastic player. For how he's developed, I would love to see him and Kane up front. They would destroy teams."
