Marcus Rashford opens up on his simple on-pitch connection with Luke Shaw

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has opened up about his on-field partnership with team-mate Luke Shaw.

The pair have worked well together down the left wing for United and their link-up play was on display for England in their recent friendly win over Romania.

Speaking to the Times, Rashford said: "It’s something we’ve had a lot of time to work on and grow into understanding each other’s game.

"I feel we’re a threat on that side. That’s what it’s about: it’s about trying to connect with your team-mates.

"A lot of the things we do are simple but they’re effective so we have to keep trying to improve and getting into dangerous areas.

"I’ve always enjoyed playing with him. He’s a great player and going into a tournament you can have connections like that all over the pitch."

Rashford also believes that England have a "good balance" in their squad heading into the Euros, with Gareth Southgate's side one of the favourites with bookmakers to win the tournament.

"The togetherness is great and among this squad now there are players that have been in the World Cup semi-finals in Russia, players who have been to Euros in France in 2016, players at the Nations League," Rashford added.

"We’ve grown and developed together and when you have that togetherness it’s easy for young talented players to slide in and play their best football.

"Whether or not you’re starting in the first XI you’ve still got a massive role to play if we want to win the tournament.

"You’re being deluded if you expect 11 players to win seven games in a short space of time.

"We have a lot of young talented players, then a mix with a few older players who have played massive games for their clubs.

"We’ve got a good balance. We’re going to need everyone to win a trophy."
