Why Man Utd star Rashford saw Portsmouth beat Shrewsbury

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford took in Shrewsbury Town's clash with Portsmouth on Saturday.

The injured England striker, 21, turned up at New Meadow to cheer on Shrews defender Ro-Shaun Williams - his former team-mate from the Red Devils academy.

Rashford had to leave the England camp as his ankle problem, picked up in the goalless draw with Liverpool last month, appeared to have worsened.

Williams left the Red Devils in January this year in search of first-team football.

But Rashford failed to be Williams' lucky charm as Shrewsbury lost 2-0 at home to Portsmouth.
