RACHEL RILEY’S World Cup 2018 tweet about Marcus Rashford last night kickstarted her fans’ eagerness over a previous “naked on Countdown” promise once again.
The 32-year-old Channel 4 favourite pitched in during the England vs Croatia semi-final to ask that Gareth Southgate bring on her favourite player in a bid to help see them through to the final.
Rachel Riley admitted she was biased in favour of the 20-year-old forward because of her life-long status as a Manchester United fan.
“I know I’m biased but… Rashford on for the winner?!” she joked, adding: “#EnglandCroatia.”
Her prediction came true when he came on as a substitute for Raheem Sterling.
Sadly, neither Rashford nor any of the rest of the England squad managed to find the back of the net again after Kieran Trippier’s incredible early goal.
