This is a great article. I love that you really explored one of the beauties of global soccer — the development of youth players and the corresponding love fans cultivate towards them.

As a Manchester United diehard, I can say one of the reasons why I love the club is that we consistently give youth players a shot at the first team — even if it’s towards the end of the season. It’s in our DNA.

Marcus Rashford is just the latest iteration of it, and he is a damn good one.
