'I work for moments like this' - Rashford delighted with winner despite cameo role

The 18-year-old came off the bench to settle the tie in Manchester United's favour late on and he was delighted to play a key part despite the limited playing time

Marcus Rashford says he works for moments like his late goal in Manchester United's 1-0 win over Hull City, and is not concerned by the limited game time he has had this season.

Rashford had not featured for United since the Community Shield win over Leicester City and was dropped down to the England Under-21 squad this week, having been part of the senior side at Euro 2016.

But the 18-year-old produced a lively cameo at the KCOM Stadium and became the first teenager to score a Premier League goal under Mourinho's management, preserving United's 100 per cent start to the season in the process.

"It's part of playing the game," Rashford told television reporters regarding being on the end of tough selection calls.

"I'm just getting on with it, working hard in training and just working for moments like this."

That such hard work now takes place alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic is only a positive according to the youngster.

"It's amazing being around them every day and learning a lot from them, so I hope it continues," he added.

United full-back Luke Shaw involved himself in the waves of attacks towards the end of the contest and he conceded he felt the victory had got away.

"To be honest, towards the end I thought it wasn't going to be our day," he said. "I didn't think we were going to get the goal.

"But we didn't stop. We kept pushing and luckily Marcus was in the right position at the right time and got us the win.

"I don't think in the last three games we have played our best. We're still gelling as a team and improving in training to get to know how each other play.

"The signs are really positive and we can only build on this."
