The English striker’s name has been trending for all the right reasons. What he is doing should be a lesson to all.

The good that Marcus Rashford has done for the homeless, children in need, and many vulnerable people in England, deserves a knighting ceremony from the Queen of England. Rashford was out injured before all evil broke out of COVID-19 but actually missed out on nothing at all.

While he could have been out breaking social distancing rules like players such as Kyle Walker and Jack Grealish, he was rather trying to see what he could do to help make a difference in the most difficult times ever seen in these recent years.

More from Manchester United

Thanks to the young 22-year-old, 1.3 million children will have a meal to eat. His campaign to raise funds for food voucher will help kids in England throughout the summer holidays. Most importantly, he spoke up for those who didn’t have a voice or doesn’t share his platform.

"About 1.3m children in England will be able to claim free school meal vouchers in the summer holidays, after a campaign by footballer Marcus Rashford. The U-turn means the government will pay the extra £120m to extend free school meal vouchers across the six weeks of the holidays, available to 1.3 million children.

Not all superheroes wear capes

Rashford is a superhero that does not need to hide his identity from the public. In fact, he must do the exact opposite. Show himself and display what a great example he is. In a time of despair, chaos, and moving into unknown territory, he is the voice needed to help restore some of our faith in humanity.

“Look at what we can do when we come together”, said the hero from Manchester, who even had rival clans cheering him on. Rashford’s shout for a U-Turn was a brave one, but one that needed to come from a person with his status.

The hard work continues off the pitch

You can choose to be Danny Rose or Marcus Rashford… There are just different types of people that make the world go round. However, it must be said, what we do need is more people like Rashford and less of those who complain like Danny.

We need people, celebs, public figures, to look up to. The time for warriors to stand up was now and is now, with a number of problems still plaguing the globe. He absolutely did stand up and showed his warrior qualities. Let’s all try to be like Marcus Rashford and make a difference where and when we can.
