Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney made the cut in Marcus Rashford’s dream Manchester United six-a-side team.

Marcus Rashford has named his dream Manchester United six-a-side team.

The 23-year-old humbly left himself out of it, choosing to mostly favor club legends he grew up watching in his line-up instead.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who Rashford idolized as a youngster, made the line-up alongside his former partner in crime Wayne Rooney.

Joining Ronaldo in Rashford’s XI are Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes, and Ryan Giggs.

“Right, I’m going to go with most players from the teams that I watched when I was growing up,” said Rashford in a Q&A session on Instagram on his dream six-a-side United team.

“I’d probably have [David] de Gea [in goal], but it was a close one between him and [Edwin] Van der Sar.

“When I was a kid Van der Sar was one of the best keepers and obviously playing with David has been great, so I’d have to put David in there.”

On who he could play in front of De Gea, Rashford added: “At the back I’d have Rio Ferdinand.

“I’m all-out attack there. I’d have [Paul] Scholesy in front of Rio, [Ryan] Giggs on the right, Ronaldo on the left, and Rooney upfront.

“I’m not putting myself in. Not yet.”
