Some Manchester United fans react to Southgate's Rashford comparison

England striker Harry Kane came on as a second-half substitute against Switzerland

England striker Harry Kane came on as a second-half substitute against Switzerland

Rashford, 20, scored against both Spain and Switzerland as a central striker during the global break but has yet to be afforded the chance in the role at club level.

Mourinho's side will be looking to end Watford's flawless start in the new campaign in a Premier League match set for Vicarage Road.

With the 25-year-old Romelu Lukaku the first-choice striker and Alexis Sanchez - signed from Arsenal in January - the first-choice left winger, Rashford has to make do with bit-part roles under United manager Jose Mourinho in competition with another overlooked young forward, Anthony Martial.

"He had 53 appearances, but if you want to take to the minutes of play, he played 3,068 and if you wan to divide that by 90 minutes matches, he played 34.2 matches of 90 minutes matches in 2016-17".

A move to another club could provide more playing time but sticking at United will help him win silverware. I don't think so.

"For me, it's the biggest club in the world, and I think he's got the potential to be one of the best".

"He (Rashford) has still played a lot of football, although maybe not the continuous starts, and I'm really pleased for him that he leaves England full of confidence".

The use of e-cigarettes has become an epidemic among teens and needs to be stopped, Food and Drug Administration chief Dr. But health officials have warned nicotine in e-cigarettes is harmful to developing brains.

"Marcus Rashford needs to play regular football as a centre forward". "More of a concern is the young players who might be coming through to challenge that are not getting an opportunity to play. His performances with England, of course I'm happy, he played well, competed well, he scored and especially in a period where he comes with some sadness after his suspension it was very good that he did that". Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, another starter against Swtizerland, kept his place in the England squad despite not starting any of the Blues' opening four league games this season.

Daily Telegraph columnist Jamie Carragher made the point that Rashford has the most hard of tasks at United - a young player coming through as a striker at a big club.

Rashford made more appearances than any other outfield player at United last season, as Mourinho likes to point out, but they were mostly from the bench.

And boss Gareth Southgate praised the Manchester United man.

"Since I was here, he was never one day out of selection because of my decision, only if he was injured or suspended".

"He is not going to give up trying to prove himself at United but he knows he may have a big decision to make soon".
