‘My favourite’: Marcus Rashford now says he absolutely loved what Bukayo Saka did vs Iran at the World Cup

Arsenal fans are learning they have to share Bukayo Saka with England fans now that the World Cup has started.

The 21-year-old was sensational against Iran on Monday and showed his quality of the world’s biggest stage.

In an interview shared on England’s social media accounts, Marcus Rashford spoke about the match.

The Manchester United forward was brought on as a second-half substitute for Saka and made an immediate impact.

Within a minute of coming off the bench, Rashford had added England’s fifth goal of the afternoon.

Fellow substitute Jack Grealish completed the rout in the 90th minute, but only Saka managed to score either side of half-time.

Rashford has now admitted he loved Saka’s first goal, and said it was his favourite of all of England’s strikes.

Saka thrashed the ball home inside the box after a knock down from Harry Maguire.

He gave the Iranian substitute goalkeeper no chance, and wheeled away in celebration with his teammates.

Rashford loved Saka’s first goal

Speaking about his England teammates’ brilliant finish, Rashford said: “I have two favourites [goals out of the six].

“I like Saka’s first one, that was a great finish because them ones are difficult sometimes where you’re not sure whether to put your foot through it or take a little of it.

“That was probably my favourite one.”

Since scoring his impressive brace, Saka’s future at club level has been discussed.

A report from the Daily Mail suggests Arsenal are prepared to triple his wages to keep him at the club.

Meanwhile, reports in Spain from Sport suggest that Real Madrid are now keeping tabs on the exciting winger.

Saka will be a nailed-on starter for Southgate for England’s upcoming game against the USA.

Even though he’s likely to keep him out the starting line-up, Rashford will love if Saka can continue his scoring streak for England with another goal.
