A young Manchester fan wanted to show off his skills to his favorite Premier League player, Marcus Rashford, and with the help of his mom and Twitter, on July 31, the English footballer noticed.
Nine-year-old Jaiden from Manchester wanted his mother Ashlea to record the video to show Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford, his favorite player, skills he practices every day. From the road in front of his home, Jaiden executed an over-the-wall goal.
Jaiden plays for the Urmston Meadowside community football club, and never misses a day of practice – with his friends or alone – Ashlea told Storyful.
Rashford saw the video of Jaiden’s expert corner kick, responding in a tweet, “I see it little man, well done!”
Ashlea said that she had not expected any responses, and that in Jaiden’s own words, the young footballer was “buzzing” that his hero had noticed his stellar goal. Credit: @ashleakpftbx via Storyful
