Granada 0-2 Man Utd: Rashford Equals Bobby Charlton’s 56-Year Record

Marcus Rashford has equalled one of Bobby Charlton's 56-year-long Manchester United records by getting on the scoresheet in their 2-0 win away at Granada on Thursday night.

The England star fired United 1-0 ahead in their Europa League quarter-final first leg against the Spanish club before a late Bruno Fernandes penalty wrapped up a comfortable victory.

Rashford now has eight goals to his name in Europe this season, having racked up 11 Europa League appearances so far in the campaign.

He is the first English player to reach that tally in Europe since Red Devils legend Charlton all the way back in the 1964/65 season.

Charlton's eight-goal return came in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup for United, but the omens are not good for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.
