Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford posted a touching message to his mother after being named in Englands 23-man squad for the World Cup.

The 20-year-old was an unexpected part of Roy Hodgsons squad for Euro 2016 but hes now a firm part of the senior set-up and was picked alongside strikers Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Danny Welbeck.

Rashford now has 17 caps to his name and could start on the left-wing as the Three Lions battle to emerge from a group consisting of Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.

Gareth Southgate announced his 23-man squad this morning and Rashford had the perfect response to the news that he had made the cut.
