Marcus Rashford knows how to make a first impression.

The Man United striker is only 18 but already he is proving to be one of the Premier League's most exciting attackers. Not only that, but a goal scored by Rashford tonight extended a particularly impressive streak that the forward has going.

Sam Allardyce opted against including the United player in his first England squad, meaning that Rashford could make a belated debut for the U21 team having already made his senior bow.

Rashford netted against Norway tonight meaning that he has now scored on his Man United U21 debut, his Premier League debut, his Europa League debut, his England senior debut and his England U21 debut.

Jose Mourinho has spoken about how he thinks Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be a great influence on Rashford at Old Trafford, and interestingly, the duo share a penchant for debut goals.

Zlatan has scored on his Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1 and Champions League debuts.
