Speaking after scoring the winner against PSG, Rashford said, as quoted by GOAL.

"Of course it's a nice feeling. More importantly, we won the game.
"We're in a strong position now in the group but it's the first game. The concentration levels we showed today we have to take forward into the next game.
"For me, they were both opportunities to win the game. As a striker, in the game late on, that's the mentality. You might only get one chance. It gets us the three points.
