Marcus Rashford breaks silence after first World Cup goal as England smashed Iran 6-2

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.

Rashford came off the bench late in the game but that didn’t relent him from getting on the scoreboard, which was England‘s fifth goal of the game, and he did that in style, watch here.

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.

Like Rashford, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw also performed well against Iran after the duo provided one assist each to help England to a thumping 6-2 win.
