Watch the highlights of our Newcastle win to see how Rashford drew level with Beckham’s goals tally.
Marcus has been busy ascending the ranks in recent seasons and, having overtaken King Eric earlier this month, the homegrown hero climbed another step up the famous ladder at the weekend.
Rashford’s goal in the 3-1 Premier League victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Sunday drew him level with Beckham on 85 and it is now surely only a matter of time before Marcus moves clear.
Our official Instagram account acknowledged the shift in rankings on Monday and, in the comments section, a certain sporting icon wrote this message to our no.10.
“Not sure we will be on the same number for long @MarcusRashford,” joked Beckham. “Didn’t realise I’d scored that many!”
Rashford has previously said he doesn’t take too much notice of such things, but he made an exception at the weekend after matching one of his United heroes.
“Joined some great company tonight, matching Becks record,” he tweeted. “Happy Sunday everyone.”
