Marcus Rashford has been invited by England manager Roy Hodgson to come and train with the senior squad before their upcoming friendlies against Australia and Portugal.

Rashford rewarded for his good form

Rashford has been in fantastic form for Manchester United since breaking into the first team since the end of February scoring seven goals in 16 appearances. The form of the striker has lead to many people asking whether he should go to the Euros with England.

Reports say that even though he has been invited to train with the squad he will not be selected for the Euros. The 18-year-old striker is making a big name for himself and it might not be too long until he does get a senior cap if he impresses Hodgson in the few training sessions he will have with him.

Hodgson is said to be very impressed with Rashford's impact at Old Trafford and wants to have a closer look at him in training to give him the experience at such a young age that many people would love to have.

Rashford hasn't represented England any higher than U20 level

Rashford hasn't even made an appearance for the England U21s yet but has got one international appearance at U20 level so it might be too soon to step up to the senior side just yet. 

The young striker will not join up with England until after the FA Cup final with Crystal Palace on May 21st but the hope is that Rashford will get some valuable experience for the future much like John Stones got before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Rashford has been vital for the Reds revival

Rashford got his chance at United when an injury to Anthony Martial before their game against FC Midtjylland meant the youngster had to step up and start. Rashford did just that and has become such an important player for Louis van Gaal over the last few months.
