Marcus Rashford's first year in numbers

Saturday marks a year to the day since Marcus Rashford made his Manchester United debut.

Here, Press Association Sport's Tom White takes a numerical look at the teenage sensation's remarkable first 12 months in senior football.

52 - Rashford's appearances for Manchester United to date.

15 - His United goal tally.

2 - Rashford scored twice on both his United debut, against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League, and his Premier League bow against Arsenal three days later.

138 - Seconds it took Rashford to find the net on his England debut against Australia.

18 years, 209 days - His age when he did so, making him England's youngest goalscoring debutant since 1938. He went on to beat Wayne Rooney's record as the Three Lions' youngest player at a European Championship.

19 - The teenager had just 19 senior appearances to his name - 18 for United, one for England - before being called into Roy Hodgson's squad for Euro 2016.

6 - England caps to date.

3 - Rashford scored a hat-trick after dropping down to the England Under-21 side for a September 2016 European Championship qualifier against Norway - his first and so far only appearance at that level.
