Rashford delighted with goal in Man Utd Cup win against Aston Villa

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford was delighted to score in their Carabao Cup win against Aston Villa.

Rashford struck as United won 4-2 on the night.

He said, “It was a game of two halves. First half it was not great in possession so it was similar to the other day. The second half we played with a lot more confidence.

“They hold a high line, no defender likes to run backwards – it’s pretty simple, we want to get in behind them. Both times we went behind we responded quickly and it is a massive shift in energy.

“Balls diagonally from full backs or from the middle to wide positions are always on, the second half we managed to time our runs a bit better.

“My aim is to enjoy my football and at the moment I am. If I am scoring goals and winning, then I am happy! I try to end up in a place for the goal. I would say I am more comfortable on the wing, back to goal I need to improve a lot on that.”

On making England’s World Cup squad, Rashford added: “It was just this morning [when he found out]. If you are performing at United then England will be round the corner. It will be a massive month for us, I am looking forward to that.”
