Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has explained what scoring his first World Cup goal meant for him during England’s smashing of Iran.
Rashford has been in decent form since the start of the season, scoring important goals both in the Premier League and the Europa League.
In the wake of his top form under Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford, the 25-year-old was called up by Gareth Southgate to join the England squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.
The Man United forward took to Twitter to express how he felt upon scoring his first World Cup goal for the Three Lions.
“Words can’t express my happiness in scoring at the World Cup. Great performance from the team see you guys on Friday,” Rashford tweeted.

Rashford’s goal came one year after he missed from the penalty spot as England lost on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020.
