Ahead of England’s clash against Spain, Liverpool fans have reacted with frustration on Twitter at calls for Marcus Rashford to start ahead of Daniel Sturridge.

The Liverpool striker started against Scotland in England’s World Cup qualifier and scored the opening goal in a comfortable 3-0 victory.

He was given the nod ahead of Tottenham’s Harry Kane, who only returned to action in the recent 1-1 draw against Arsenal following a two-month absence.

Kane was released from the England squad ahead of Tuesday night’s friendly though and it has sparked discussion on whether Rashford should be given an opportunity up front.

Sturridge is yet to score a goal in the Premier League so far this season but has been in bright form for England, scoring three goals in his last seven appearances.

Rashford made his international debut in the 2-1 friendly victory against Australia in May and scored after coming on as a second-half substitute. The 19 year-old has scored three goals for Manchester United in the Premier League this season.
