Our homegrown hero was one of three players who missed penalties during a dramatic penalty shootout at Wembley Stadium and, disgracefully, he has been subjected to racist abuse online.
The club has condemned this vile behaviour and we urge supporters to utilise our See Red campaign, which allows you to report abuse and discrimination online.
Here, you can read Rashford’s passionate and emotional words in full…
“I don’t even know where to start and I don’t even know how to put into words how I’m feeling at this exact time. I’ve had a difficult season, I think that’s been clear for everyone to see and I probably went into that final with a lack of confidence. I’ve always backed myself for a penalty but something didn’t feel quite right. During the long run up I was saving myself a bit of time and unfortunately the result was not what I wanted.
