MANCHESTER (REUTERS) - Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford maintained his uncanny knack of scoring on competition debuts when he came off the bench to poach their third goal in a 3-0 Champions League Group A victory over Basel at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old struck in the 84th minute - seven minutes after coming on for his first taste of the Champions League.

Rashford scored two goals on his United debut against Midtjylland in the Europa League in 2015 and a few days later, marked his first Premier League action with two goals in a 3-2 victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Last year, he scored in his first League Cup match against Northampton Town and followed that by scoring in a friendly against Australia on his full England debut.

Rashford scored his first competitive goal for England last week against Slovakia in a World Cup qualifier.
