It's slowly turning into the story of the English summer; who will go to Euro 2016 - Marcus Rashford or Daniel Sturridge?

Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson has to trim his squad down before the tournament begins this summer, and although it initially it seemed as though Rashford, who scored eight in 18 appearances for Manchester United in his breakthrough season, was only included for experience. 

However, after last night, there's a very real chance he could make the cut. Why? Well because he made history by becoming England's youngest ever goalscorer in the 2-1 win over Australia last night.

The talented youngster hit the back of the net with a close-range effort just 135 seconds into his international debut.

Not only that though, Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge was unable to take part in the game because of injury - he made just 11 Premier League starts this season - and judging by his reaction when Rashford scored, the striker knows his place in Hodgson's squad could be in jeopardy.

In case you missed it last night, here's how he reacted: 

Of course, the internet didn't miss the chance to stick the boot into Sturridge for his reaction, and you can check out the best tweets below.

England have one more warm-up friendly against Portugal at Wembley next Thursday which represents the final chance for some players to make their case for inclusion in England's final squad.

The Three Lions kick off their Euro campaign against Russia on June 11, before facing Wales and Slovakia.

Who should Hodgson take to France - Rashford or Sturridge?
