Marcus Rashford has taken a huge step towards full recovery after scoring a brace for Man United during a behind-closed-doors friendly against Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday, October 6.
Rashford is yet to make an appearance for United this season as he has been nursing a shoulder injury he picked in August.
Metro UK reports the forward has been battling the shoulder problem since November 2020 and decided to undergo a surgery after the Euro 2020 campaign.
It is understood the Englishman took part in his first full training session with teammates at Carrington last week as he worked his way towards full recovery.

With United taking part in a friendly this week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to give him his first chance against Blackburn Rovers as he prepares him for competitive appearances.
And the 23-year-old marked his return to action with two goals as he inspired the Red Devils to a 3-0 victory.
Solskjaer is now hopeful his starman could be in contention to make his first appearance this term when United take on Leicester in the Premier League after the international break.
Solskjaer's sacking predicted
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported former Liverpool star Didi Hamann has said he expects Man United to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager 'soon.'
Solskjaer has found himself on the receiving end in recent days after United recording a number of unconvincing results across competitions.
The Red Devils are winless in three Premier League matches, suffering a shock home defeat to Aston Villa before they followed up that result with a 1-1 draw against Everton at the weekend.
