Former Manchester United striker Andrew Cole has praised Marcus Rashford after his outstanding form for club and country this season.
Jose Mourinho and Gareth Southgate have put faith in the 19-year-old and are reaping the awards from his fearless talents.
With Rashford firing on all cylinders thanks to the services of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, Cole is expecting big things from the young Englishman.
“He’s a young man, he’s hungry, loads of desire, passion. What I like about him is he plays it like it’s his last game.
“When you’re at that age that’s what you do, cause you enjoy it so much. If he continues to improve with the players he has around him, he could be a world beater. He definitely has the quality.”
“His attitude is bang on. He’s spot on. He works very well, he wants to improve. I was listening to him say last season how much he watches Zlatan and Wayne, and how much he learns off the guys in his position. He takes it all on board, he takes it in his stride, to add things to his game.”
Rashford continued his impressive form by scoring the winning goal for England in their World Cup qualifier against Slovakia on Monday.
Neymar was back to training with the Brazil squad on Tuesday as they prepare for their World Cup qualifier against Colombia.
Neymar became the world’s most expensive player this summer after his move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for £198m.
While Brazil have already qualified for the 2018 World Cup and lead the points table by 11 points, Neymar will already have one eye on next summer.
The 25-year old has already scored three goals and provided three assists in three Ligue 1 appearances so far.
Neymar was seen in a positive mood during training as he performed a few tricks and took part in a series of drills at Barranquilla.

Julian Draxler is ready for the battle with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for a place in the Paris St Germain team.
The Germany winger moved to the French capital in January but this summer saw his club smash the world record transfer fee to sign Neymar from Barcelona before Monaco sensation Mbappe arrived on an initial loan deal on deadline day.
Draxler has made just two brief substitute appearances for his club this season and is likely to be on the bench again when Ligue 1 resumes on Friday after the international break.
The 23-year-old was linked with a move to Arsenal towards the end of August but he decided to stay and fight for his place.
And he sent a reminder to PSG boss Unai Emery of what he can do by scoring in Germany’s 6-0 rout of Norway on Monday.
After the game Draxler said in quotes reported by Bild: “I sent a signal to Paris that I can be reckoned with.
“For me, leaving was not an issue. As far as I know, it was not an issue for Paris either. I did not want to leave the club because I wanted to compete.
“I’m delighted to play with such footballers in a team. It’s normal to have such a competition in the top five teams in Europe. This is exactly the same with Bayern Munich.
“I have no special status in the team, but I have to fight for my stakes. And I will do that.”
