Rashford mural defaced hours after England penalty shootout miss

Manchester United striker mural defaced hours after England penalty shootout miss

A mural honouring the work of Marcus Rashford has been vandalised in the wake of his penalty miss for England on Sunday night.

The Manchester United and England striker – who has worked tirelessly to tackle food poverty and challenge government policy – was the first of three players to miss a spot kick as Italy won the European Championship final on penalties.

The artwork in Withington, Manchester, was defaced in the hours after England’s heartbreaking defeat.

Either side of a picture of Rashford, the mural carries a quote from his mother, which reads: “Take pride in knowing that your struggle will play the biggest role in your purpose.”

Ed Wellard, co-founder of Withington Walls, the community project which worked on the mural, has worked quickly to repair the damage.
