Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has revealed his biggest inspiration and the England attacker insisted there is 'no better motivation' to him than Cristiano Ronaldo and he believes the Real Madrid star is the best in the world.

The Portuguese forward started the World Cup in a remarkable fashion with a hattrick against Spain and a goal against Morocco and he is currently leading the race for the golden boot in the World Cup having scored four goals in two games.

According to Rashord 'He keeps making these moments which are unbelievable and there is no better sort of motivation than him,'

'[Is he the best in the game right now?] I'd say so. He is not only maintaining it but he keeps hitting new heights.

'To get to that level it takes years and years of doing the same things in training every day.' 

While the pair never crossed paths at Manchester United, Ronaldo clearly has a soft spot for rising England and United striker, Ronaldo sent a signed Real Madrid shirt and a red Nike air max trainers to the English international.

Rashford also spoke about the reaction of the fan to the late winner over Tunisia and he believes the goal can help the squad in terms of motivation for the rest the tournament.

'It was a special night, a night you'll never forget, especially in the manner that we won it,' he added.

'I always say when you score late goals like that it's usually down to the support because I'm telling you, a lot of players on the pitch are psychically drained. 

'It's definitely the biggest feeling I have had in an England shirt and that stays with us now. We can sort of use that to push off on and build.' Rashford told ITV. 

Up next for Rashford and his teammate is the game against Panama on Sunday.
