Marcus Rashford scored a stunning goal against Burnley in his first match for Manchester United since returning from the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
England forward Rashford made an incredible solo run down the right flank from his own half to enter the Burnley box and beat goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell to find the bottom-left corner with a right-footed strike in the second half of the Round of 16 clash in the Carabao Cup.
The goal from the 25-year-old in the 57th minute made it 2-0 for Erik ten Hag’s team after Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen scored the opening goal half an hour ago.
Rashford scored three goals for England at the World Cup in which Gareth Southgate’s team lost 1-2 to eventual runner-up France in the quarterfinals.
His three strikes included one from an astonishing free-kick against Wales in the team’s final group match. Incidentally, it was the first goal of the tournament from a free-kick.
Rashford has nine goals in 20 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United this season.
