Man Utd boss Mourinho delighted with 2-goal Rashford: He's still growing!

The 19-year-old Red Devils forward shined in the global friendly - scoring just under two minutes into the match and adding a second goal before half time.

Galaxy full-back Nathan Smith was caught in possession by Jesse Lingard, who poked the ball through for Rashford to curl his finish into the bottom corner with aplomb and get United's 2017-18 campaign off to a flawless start. Teammates say he's been sharp in training, stronger when challenged in possession, yet quicker in releasing the ball. "A compilation of minutes on a pitch". You change your body when you're a young kid.

"He's put some muscle on, but without any kind of specific work".

"It's something we have to keep working on in case during the season we decide to play three at the back".

Rashford then fired another effort over the crossbar before turning provider for Mata, who also missed the target from inside the area when he drilled his strike wide.

Goalkeeper Brian Rowe, defenders Dave Romney, Jelle Van Damme, Ashley Cole, midfielders Joao Pedro, Emmanuel Boateng and Giovani dos Santos and forward Jack McBean entered the game to start the second half. This lineup faced a much tougher LA Galaxy team that involved more of their first team players. Juan Mata saw a fine clipped shot well saved before the Spaniard, on 20 minutes, set Rashford up for another excellent goal.

Victor Lindelof also made his debut, but it was already 3-0 when the duo were introduced, with Marcus Rashford having stolen the show in the first half.

Anthony Martial made it 5-0 after 72 minutes, with Pogba again involved, plus Timothy Fosu-Mensah. I thank the Galaxy players for the competition for us'.

"I don't need to present him as a player, he has a hell of a lot of qualities", Rooney's former United team-mate Schneiderlin told Everton's website. A player of great economic power. We knew he is going to score more goals than last season'. He was a very big influence in the dressing room at United and he will be here, for sure. "We would like two more but at least one".

The Portuguese was named Premier League Player of the Month on four occasions, Player of the Season twice and claimed the 2007-08 Premier League Golden Boot with 31 goals in 34 appearances.
