Accolades just keep coming for rising star Marcus Rashford.
The teenage talent has enjoyed a stellar 2016 since making his Manchester United debut in February – including becoming an England international.
And now the 18-year-old’s meteoric climb has seen him nominated for the 2016 UEFA Golden Boy award.
The striker is one of 10 Premier League-based players on the 40-man shortlist which recognises the best talent in Europe under the age of 21.
Nominations for the award must be born after January 1, 1996 and play for a European club. The award, founded in 2003, relates to performances across a particular calendar year, with the winner decided by a panel of 30 journalists.
As well as Rashford, Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi makes the cut after shining for Arsene Wenger’s side.
The Gunners’ arch-rivals Tottenham also have a representative in England international Dele Alli. The 20-year-old scored 11 goals last season as Spurs finished third in the Premier League.
There are three representatives from Chelsea (Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Andreas Christensen and Nathan), while Manchester City have two (Kelechi Iheanacho and Leroy Sane).
Leicester City’s Demarai Gray and Liverpool’s Marko Grujic complete the top-flight list from England.
