Man Utd youngster Rashford embracing England challenge

Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford has stated that he is ready for the challenge of spearheading England's attack.

England prepare for an all important World Cup Qualifier clash away to Scotland on Saturday and the Three Lions will surely be desperate to claim a victory over their fierce rivals at their own backyard.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United sensation Marcus Rashford will be handed a start on the evening as the likes of Harry Kane, Jermain Defoe and Jamie Vardy are available options to choose from for manager Gareth Southgate but the 19-year-old has insisted that he will be ready for the challenge if given the nod to lead the England attack.

Rashford said: "Of course it's difficult, but it always is. If it's not difficult there's a problem because it means there's not enough top players about. But there are top players and there's good competition.

"You're always improving when you come away with England. It's massive watching these forwards – the likes of Harry (Kane), Jermain (Defoe) and (Jamie) Vardy. They are top-quality forwards and just being in and around them is massive for my development."
