Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has shot down calls for Manchester United starlet Marcus Rashford to be included in England’s squad for Euro 2016.
The 18-year-old burst onto the scene last week by scoring back-to-back braces in his first two senior appearances for the Red Devils.
However, Fowler believes it would be premature to send Rashford to the European Championships in France later this year.
“I’m a bit ‘blimey’ on the Manchester United teen, even after he scored doubles in his first two games in the senior side,” Fowler wrote in The New Day.
“His record through the age groups is fantastic, and he’s done brilliantly.
“But calls for him to go to France in June are ridiculous.
“I know what it’s like to be a teenager in the top-flight and I just hope he’s allowed to develop and keeps scoring goals – he’s got a bit about him.”
