In the center of attention since he missed a penalty last night and faced racist insults, Marcus Rashford has written a deeply moving message on social media.
England’s third shot during the penalty shootout last night in the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy, Marcus Rashford touched the post when Gianluigi Donnarumma hit the wrong foot. A failure would follow two more Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka who would hasten the English defeat. A victim since racist insults, Marcus Rashford posted a shocking message on Instagram.
The Manchester United star wrote on Instagram:
“I don’t even know where to start and I don’t even know how to express how I feel right now. I’ve had a tough season, I think it’s clear to everyone and I probably entered the final with no confidence. I always volunteered for a penalty, but something was wrong. The long run, I took a step back and unfortunately the result wasn’t what I wanted. I felt like I let my teammates down. I felt like I let everyone down. A penalty kick was all I was asked to contribute to the team. I could score penalties in my sleep so why wouldn’t this happen? I played In my head over and over since I hit the ball and there is probably no word to describe exactly how I feel Final 55 years 1 penalty History All I can say is sorry I wish it could have happened differently As I continue to apologize I would like to I pay tribute to my teammates.This summer has been one of the best gatherings I have lived and participated in all of them.An unshakable brotherhood has been built.Your success is my success.Your failures are mine.I have become an athlete where I expect to read things written about myself.Be it the color of my skin,the place where I grew up in it, or more recently how I decided to spend my time off the field.I can get criticized for my full performance l Today, the penalty was not good, it should have come but I will never apologize for who I am and where I came from. I felt more proud of wearing these three lions on my chest and seeing my family cheering me on in a crowd of tens of thousands. I dreamed of days like these. The messages I received today were very positive and seeing the reply to Withington made me cry. The communities that have always surrounded me with their arms continue to support me. I’m Marcus Rashford, 23, a black male from Withington, Wythenshaw, South Manchester. If I don’t have anything else, I have this. For all these beautiful messages, thank you. I will come back stronger. We will come back stronger. MR10”.
He later revealed any messages of support people had sent him.
