Marcus Rashford has been in superb form since he broke in into the Manchester United first team when Louis van Gaal gave him a chance against Midtjylland in the Europa League on February 25 that he has been backed by several pundits to make the final 23 for the finals in France.

But the 18-year-old striker will need to wait a little bit more before he can feature in England’s senior team as manager Roy Hodgson wants more of experience in his squad.

Mirror sport has revealed that Hodgson will resist any clamour to pick him, as Sven Goran Eriksson did in selecting a 17-year-old Theo Walcott for the 2006 World Cup or Glenn Hoddle when Michael Owen went to the 1998 World Cup aged just 18.

Hodgson has kept close tabs on Rashford, but believes he should carry on playing for England’s age-group teams until he ­progresses from the Under-21s in a few years’ time.

Rashford has already bagged six goals  in 11 games since his debut match against Midtjylland
