Marcus Rashford seeks Euro 2020 penalty salvation in Qatar
Being a key to England's run to Euro 2020's final, the Manchester United striker was among the three players who failed to beat Donnarumma as England handed the trophy to Italy in the penalty shoot-out. However, Rashford seeks redemption in Qatar.
, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka were the three
internationals who missed their penalties, handing out the
title to their rivals Italy.
Asked whether he would accept penalty duty again in Qatar or not, Rashford told his press conference:
"Racism is not good to go through as an individual but it's not good to see anyone go through it. [It's] more just disappointment. You're disappointed that people have views like that.
"And the main reason is that you don't have those views about anyone else, regardless of their race or religion. It's more the disappointment that people are thinking those things, rather than saying them.
"I've missed a penalty before. You never want to miss a penalty, it's a great opportunity for forwards especially to score goals, and obviously they're big moment.
"As an individual I've always been comfortable with and enjoy big moments so I'm hoping I get to take another penalty in the tournament. I'm looking forward to it."
On his consideration of their final group game against
, Rashford said:
"It is not often I come away with England and feel like we're going to lose games. I think as a collective, we're very strong.
"The togetherness is really high and it is a big feature that Gareth puts emphasis on.
"It is something we have worked on and it has improved as time has gone on. But like I said, the main reason why we are in the position we're in is because we have good players who are willing to work for one another and leave it all out on the pitch.
"In the next game, we'll definitely look to do that."
