Football Rising Star | There are so many exciting moments described in this lively biography of football star Marcus Rashford. There’s the story of his first game for Manchester United’s first team, the club he’d followed all his life, a fairytale debut in which he scored twice to secure them a place in the next round of the Europa League. His first game in the Premier League was just as impressive – again, he scored twice to win the game. He scored on his debut for England too, at 18 years old, the youngest ever English player to do that. And yet, for many, what really marks him out is his success in persuading the government to extend free school meals for children during the summer holidays, and his campaigning against food poverty. It all makes for thrilling, inspiring reading, and Harry Meredith’s narrative does full justice to the drama. Thoroughly recommended for young football fans, whichever team they support.
Witness the birth of a superstar. Kylian Mbappe was just 19 years old when he became the youngest football player since Brazilian legend Pele to score at a World Cup final. Already an exceptional striker for Monaco and PSG in France's Ligue 1, the 2018 tournament made the young Frenchman an international star. From idolising Cristiano Ronaldo to being spoken of in the same breath as the Portuguese star, Kylian continues his rise to the top. About the Football Rising Stars series: Football Rising Stars dives into the incredible journeys of ten of the world's best, young players. Featuring talents from England, Portugal, Norway, France, Germany and Spain, the series covers their unique rise; from playing football in the park and 5-a-sides to performing in front of capacity crowds on the biggest stage and in the biggest leagues.
