Marcus Rashford was facing a big test on Tuesday night. He became one of the very few people to make their England Under-21 debut after their first senior appearance.
The 18-year-old was a surprise addition to England's Euro 2016 squad last summer and did as well as anyone in what was a disappointing tournament for Roy Hodgson's men. He returned to Old Trafford with fresh competition in the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Under Jose Mourinho, Rashford is now an impact substitute, making him virtually unselectable for Sam Allardyce. Unsurprisingly, Gareth Southgate jumped at the opportunity to call him up to the youth ranks.
And his first game came against Norway U21 at the Colchester Community Stadium. Would he have the motivation to play at a lower level? Eyes were on him to see just how much he was trying.
As one of the youngest on the pitch, some Norway defenders may have fancied their chances against Rashford, especially considering his lack of first-team action this season. But, if that's what they were thinking, they were wrong.
In the 29th minute, the ball bumbled into the space behind the Norwegian defensive line and the goalkeeper. The centre-back probably thought he had plenty of time to clear up but Rashford's raw pace saw him make up yards in a matter of seconds.
The Manchester United star won the race to the ball and finished well to give England the lead. Take a look at the goal below:
Amazingly, Rashford has now scored on his debut in five different contests over the last two years. He managed to score on his Manchester United U21 debut, his Europa League debut, his Premier League debut and his England debut.
All-in-all, he has seven goals in those debut games and still has 45 minutes to increase it further.
England are currently 2-0 up against Norway after Nathan Chalobah doubled the lead in the 37th minute.
