Ex-England international: Why Marcus Rashford is very comparable to Michael Owen


Former Chelsea and England defender Graeme Le Saux says Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford can be a star in this summer's Euro 2016 Championship.

The youngster was a surprise inclusion in Roy Hodgson's squad for the competition and was an unused subtitute for England's opener against Russia last week.

He impressed in Louis van Gaal's side this season, scoring twice against Arsenal when the Red Devils beat their rivals at Old Trafford in February.

"Marcus Rashford is very comparable to Michael Owen in 98, when he burst onto the scene and had a huge impact," Le Saux told Metro.

"You look at how quickly he's come to be recognised and that innocence of youth. I was so pleased that Roy picked him, I would have done the same because he is talented, versatile and has good instincts.

"The current side have got plenty of quality, but not a huge amount of experience in the side, which is not strictly a bad thing as there appears to be no clashes in personalities or big egos within the dressing room.

"There's quality, athleticism, moral and team spirit similar to that in the 96 and 98 squad."
