Gary Lineker hailed Marcus Rashford’s “sensational” free-kick in Manchester United’s 1-0 win at Celta Vigo on Thursday night.

Jose Mourinho started with the England striker in a lone role for the first leg of their Europa League semi-final in Spain.

Rashford was guilty of wasting a great chance to break the deadlock either side of half-time as Manchester United looked to score a vital away goal.

The 19-year-old earned a free-kick with a driving run in the second half and Rashford curled a finish past the Celta Vigo goalkeeper to break the deadlock in style.

Former England and Tottenham striker Lineker was full of praise for Rashford after the striker’s incredible free-kick in the Europa League semi-final in Celta Vigo.

Lineker wrote: “Superb from Rashford. Absolutely sensational. 19 years old and steps up to take @ManUtd’s freekicks ahead of Pogba et al. He’s got it all.”
