Marcus Rashford invited to England’s pre-Euro 2016 training camp

first_img1 18-year-old Rashford has impressed with seven goals in his first 16 senior appearances for Man United Manchester United’s teenage striker Marcus Rashford has been invited to England pre-Euro 2016 training camp, but it remains unclear if Roy Hodgson will take him to the summer’s finals in France.Rashford, 18, has won many admirers for his rapid rise at Old Trafford, having scored seven goals in 16 games in his debut campaign.Back-to-back braces, against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League and Arsenal in the Premier League, in the first two senior appearances of his career quickly led to calls for an England call-up, and Hodgson refused to rule out the possibility of taking the youngster to the tournament.And it is now understood Rashford will be given the chance to impress ahead of this summer’s finals in France.Hodgson has delayed naming his 23-man squad until Monday, and it is understood Rashford will NOT be on the provisional list.But the Three Lions boss has until May 31 to lodge his final squad with UEFA, which means Rashford may have a chance to force his way onto the plane.The United youngster will be unable to play in England’s warm-up friendly against Turkey at the Etihad Stadium due to the FA Cup final.But he COULD be free for selection five days later for another friendly against Australian at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light.Hodgson is reportedly stalling on deciding who should replace the injured Danny Welbeck.Arsenal’s Theo Walcott, and relegated Newcastle’s Andros Townsend are obviously choices, but  Rashford would well be in the frame if he impresses.last_img read more
