Rashford admits to 'difficult' time at Manchester United
Old Trafford welcomed Champions League football for the first time in 657 days on Tuesday evening, when Romelu Lukaku and Rashford wrapped up a 3-0 victory against Basel following Marouane Fellaini’s first-half header.
The Belgium midfielder, back from a calf injury, was brought off the bench just 19 minutes into the Group A opener after Paul Pogba’s night was abruptly halted during an innocuous passage of play.
Sunday’s return to Premier League action at home to Everton certainly looks out of the question and Rashford says United will understandably miss one of the stars of the early weeks of the season.
Rashford is confident of this weekend building on Tuesday’s “solid” start to Group A life against Basle – a night when the 3-0 scoreline fairly reflected United’s dominance.
For the 19-year-old, it was a first taste of Champions League football and, like so many times before, a competition debut he capped with a goal.
