Man United's Marcus Rashford dazzles England camp with ball skills

The England squad are currently congregated at St. George's Park, where they are in the midst of preparing for a friendly against Nigeria at Wembley.

As well as all the usual drills, the warm-up session also entailed a hotly contested match between a team of players born in the north and a team of players born in the south.

For reasons unspecified, Jesse Lingard (born in Warrington) was made to migrate south for the occasion.

As it happens, the South XI emerged victorious and made a very definite point of rubbing it in on social media in the aftermath!

However, despite the camaraderie on display, it was Marcus Rashford who stole the show with a fantastic solo demonstration of his ball skills.

Three consecutive minutes of kick-ups while walking from the pitch back to the car park (and while crowded with beguiled onlookers) is no mean feat.

Honestly, we lost count somewhere around the 160 mark!

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
