Marcus Rashford dazzled on his Manchester United debut and managed to surpass a 51-year-old record held by George Best in the process.

The 18-year-old scored twice as United emphatically overturned their embarassing defeat in Denmark to run out 5-1 winners over FC Midtjylland at Old Trafford to secure a place in the Europa League last 16.



Rashford's first goal came through some sharp movement inside the box to meet Juan Mata's cutback, while his positioning skills shone through for his second as he turned in Guillermo Varela's cross from close range.

And at 18 years and 117 days, Rashford has now become United's youngest goalscorer in all European competitons since George Best (18 years and 158 days) struck in a 6-1 victory over Djurgarden in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in October 1964.
