Manchester United forwards Marcus Rashford has cemented his spot in the club’s history after scoring in the 2-0 victory over Granada in the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday night, April 8.

Sir Bobby Charlton set the 56-year-old Manchester United record, but on Thursday night, April 8, Rashford put United up 1-0 against the Spanish outfit in the first leg of their quarter-final tie at Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes.

The 23-year-attack old’s in continental competition has prompted comparisons to former Red Devils midfielder Bobby Charlton.

 

Rashford is now the first English player to score eight goals in Europe in one season since Charlton way back in the 1964-65 season.
