England fans are fairly known for getting a little bit excited when things are going well, so when Marcus Rashford scored with his first shot on target, their moment to shine came.
And boy did they shine on Twitter.
The 18-year-old is now quite possibly the most loved kid in the country, and people were quick to point out he’d now scored with his first shot in the Premier League and Europa League for Manchester United, and for England.
His rise is fairly epic, and here’s how Twitter saw it…
Here’s the goal…

Somewhere in Portugal a pissed Louis van Gaal is explaining to a waiter that he's the one who gave Rashford his debut.

I don't care if it's Australia. If you think Rooney shouldn't be called up, you're an idiot.
