Marcus Rashford scored a hat-trick in England's Under-21s win over Norway.

Rashford was left out of Sam Allardyce’s first senior England squad for their 1-0 win in Slovakia on Sunday, despite playing at Euro 2016 and scoring on his debut against Australia in May.

“It means a lot [that Allardyce was here]. It’s the England seniors, there is a new manager and they are doing well. Everyone is working hard to get into that side, so it was important that he was here to see our development,” he told BT Sport.

“It was a good debut to have. It was a strong performance from the boys. Norway played well, despite the scoreline. We worked hard for the whole 90 minutes and I think in the end we deserved the result.

“I’d say the penalty was my favorite, to be honest. It was the first penalty I have scored since I have been a professional.”
