Rashford continues remarkable scoring trend in Champions League bow

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford marked his Champions League debut with a goal to continue a stunning career of firsts.

Rashford famously broke into the Manchester United line-up with a double against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League.

He netted twice on his Premier League bow versus Arsenal three days later and subsequently repeated the trick of scoring on debut by doing so in his first EFL Cup appearance (against Northampton) and maiden Manchester derby.

The trend has also continued at international level, with Rashford marking his first Under-21 and senior England appearances by finding the net.
