Man United striker dropped to England U21 squad

Marcus Rashford has been named in Gareth Southgate's England Under-21 squad after not playing a minute in the league for Manchester United this season under Jose Mourinho.

Despite an impressive start to his international career, new England Sam Allardyce has decided not to bring him in his first squad.

Rashford is not playing now so it makes it harder for me to select him, as exciting as he was last year and how he burst on the scene.

At such a young age, do I say, 'Go and play in the Under-21s, get used to international football there, play regularly there and it will help you eventually, hopefully to break into the Manchester United team and then break into the England senior team'?

You've got all those scenarios to consider.

– Sam Allardyce
