high-quality forward,

Marcus Rashford

, who has been involved in charity works besides football, has ruled out the possibility of him becoming Great Britain’s Prime Minister insisting that he wants to be a person like Ronaldo and not someone like Boris Johnson.

"Yeah I probably can [rule out being a politician] because it's not something I grew up wanting to do," Rashford

said at a pre-match press conference at St. George's Park.

"My mind's not on that really but it was great speaking to him [Obama] and I've enjoyed speaking to people like that, learning from them and taking what I can from the stories that they tell me. It's something I will always remember."

Rashford, who is one of England’s important players in the Euro 2020, may face his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo, in the next round based on where they would end up in the group stage, and he has welcomed that possibility as it would be the first time they face each other; although facing the best goal scorer of the European Championship’s history doesn’t seem to be a good wish for any team, but Rashford is interested in facing his idol on the pitch.

“To play against Portugal would be a great feeling for everyone in the squad because to play against some of the best players in the world, we want to test ourselves against the best,"

he said

. "That’s the reason why push ourselves every day.

"We don’t want an easy ride, we want to play against the best teams in the world. We want to do well against them. For the players, it will be an amazing experience.

"Cristiano is an unbelievable player and it almost becomes normal when he defies the odds now, it’s just the way his career has been from the beginning, and it will be a great experience to play against him.

"Just watching him grow and develop into the player he’s become was the great thing about it because when he first started playing, he wasn’t the Cristiano that you see today or five years ago, he was a different player, he was always dribbling, always taking people on and then just as time went on he just turned into an animal.

"He was scoring, he was assisting, he’s 36 and he’s scoring goals left, right and center, so I don't have a bad word to say about him. I think he’s someone a lot of people look up to including me."
