Marcus Rashford scored in his debut with England on Friday.

The goal, which made Rashford the youngest English player to score in his debut, came just 2:19 into his international career, and it opened the scoring in England's 2-1 win over Australia in a pre-Euro 2016 friendly at Sunderland's Stadium of Light.

This is not the first time Rashford has scored in a major debut. The 18-year-old netted a pair of second-half goals in his opening match with Manchester United in February, helping the Red Devils to a come-from-behind victory to stave off Europa League elimination in the round of 32.

He followed that performance up with two goals in Manchester United’s 3–2 win over Arsenal.

Rashford has now scored with his first shot in the Premier League, Europa League and on the international stage.

His Manchester United teammate, Wayne Rooney, scored England's second, and despite an own goal by Eric Dier, the Three Lions held on to secure the result.
