The English manager announced the squad Wednesday morning announcing Rashford's selection in England's forward line-up including Raheem Sterling, Kamie Vardy, Harry Kane, and Danny Welbeck.

Rashford was over the cloud after the selection. He posted a heart-touching message, dedicated to his mother, on his Twitter Wednesday evening.

"After years of you standing on the touchline in the cold and rain, Mum we're off to the world cup!," wrote Rashford on Twitter.

 

 

Rashford has 17 national caps to his name and could be the first choice of Gareth Southgate and start on the left-wing as their battle to rise from the group consisting Panama, Tunisia, and Belgium.

Rashford was also a part of Roy Hodgson's squad for Euro 2016 and made his debut in the international tournament on 16th June 2016 in a 2-1 win over Wales.

England will be taking Nigeria and Costa Rica in international friendlies before officially kicking off their World Cup campaign against Tunisia on June 18.
