English forward Marcus Rashford released a powerful statement Monday following his disappointing finish at Euro 2020:
Rashford was subbed onto pitch in the 120th minute of the Euro 2020 final against Italy with the score tied 1-1, effectively only coming on for penalty kicks. The Manchester United player then missed his attempt while hitting only the left post.
Italy went on to win the title with a 3-2 shootout victory.
"A penalty was all I'd been asked to contribute for the team. I can score penalties in my sleep so why not that one?" Rashford said in his post.
