Manchester United’s teenage forward Mason Greenwood says he wants to “break records” and be remembered forever.
The 18-year-old has earned a first England call-up after a breakthrough season at Old Trafford, where he established himself in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice attack.
No teenager has ever scored more goals in a single campaign for United than Greenwood, whose 17-goal haul in all competitions put him level with George Best, Brian Kidd and Wayne Rooney.
Greenwood said he felt “ready to compete with anyone” and all-time record Premier League goalscorer Alan Shearer has already backed the forward to surpass his own 260-goal haul.
“Obviously any young football player would want to break records and if you didn’t, there’s something wrong,” he said ahead of England’s Nations League matches away to Iceland and Denmark.
