Gareth Southgate has actually compared Marcus Rashford to Cristiano Ronaldo

Marcus Rashford scored his second goal for England in the space of a week on Tuesday night

Rashford, who scored for England against Spain and Switzerland during the global break, had been urged by former Premier League star, Alan Shearer to quit United due to his lack of regular playing time under manager, Jose Mourinho.

Rashford will go back to United and compete for a starting berth against Watford on Saturday with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, while the Red Devils will play a Champions League match against Young Boys in Switzerland the following Wednesday.

Rashford will serve the first game of a three-match suspension this weekend following his red card against Burnley before the worldwide break, further restricting his opportunity to build on his part in England's run to the semifinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation, where he made six appearances.

Thompson thinks Rashford will have to make a big decision about his future next summer if his lack of action continues at Old Trafford. "He's a huge admirer of him, but he's got his job to do", Southgate maintained.

"The landscape is what it is and I understand the difficulties club managers have".

"For me, it's the biggest club in the world, and I think he's got the potential to be one of the best".

Trying to dampen his frustration at not being a regular starter for his club was partly why Southgate played him in both of England's recent fixtures.

"He played a total of 52 matches with 2,676 mins, and if you divide that by 90, it gives you 29.7 matches, so with me, in two seasons, he had 105 appearances, 5,774 mins, 63.7 matches of 90 minutes, including five finals, so the people speaking about these minutes, I think they are a bit confused".

Like with so many others in the England squad, though, that confidence can only be maintained if Rashford plays for his club, no matter what he has achieved so far and the impressive comparisons he has drawn. They have to try and win matches. They have a hard job to do and they have big squads in the top six, with huge competition for places.

"We really wanted to make Marcus feel important over this period", said Southgate, according to Sky Sports. They are going to have the League Cup and European football, so there's more opportunity that the squads will get rotated.

"Some of the step-overs and things Ronaldo was doing at that age [were remarkable], but Ronaldo wasn't converting them into the same number of goals".

A move to another club could provide more playing time but sticking at United will help him win silverware.
