Man Utd legend Roy Keane predicts Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling will 'explode' for England at Euro 2020
8th June 2021

MARCUS RASHFORD and Raheem Sterling are set to 'explode' into life for England at this summer's European Championship, according to Roy Keane.

Both Three Lions stars endured a slight slump in form last season.


Sterling, 26, scored just ten goals – less than half of his 2019-20 – tally, with emerging superstar Phil Foden often preferred by Pep Guardiola.

Rashford, too, saw his goal-scoring tally dip from 17 to 11 in the Premier League.

But Manchester United icon Keane reckons that bodes well for England with Rashford, 23, and Sterling set to take out their frustrations on their Euro 2020 rivals.

Keane said: "Sometimes you look at players who have had a quiet spell – quiet because they've set such high standards.

"Rashford and Sterling, for example.

"But I think that is a good thing. You're going into the tournament going 'these lads are ready to explode'.

"Gareth [Southgate] definitely likes Rashford and Sterling."

However, Southgate has a dilemma on his hands with a plethora of attacking talent at his disposal.

Sterling, Rashford and Kane would be England's most experienced front three.

But the likes of Jack Grealish, Mason Mount and Foden have all been in red-hot form of late and will be pushing for a starting spot.

Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka are two other young stars vying for a place in the first XI.

Grealish particularly caught the eye in the friendly wins over Austria and Romania.

But Keane reckons the Aston Villa captain won't make Southgate's first-choice team.

Keane continued: "Listen, I like Jack. But I think if Jack is playing, you'd have to leave out Mount or Foden."

England kick off their Euro 2020 campaign against Croatia at Wembley on Sunday.
