Stop me if you've heard this one before: Marcus Rashford just scored in a debut. Having done the deed in seemingly every first appearance he's made thus far, Manchester United's young striker went ahead and scored again in a debut, this time with the England Under-21 team on Tuesday.
And he did it in delightful fashion, pumping home a hat trick en route to England's 6-1 route against Norway.
Rashford is no stranger to scoring in his opening bows, of course. He made his Manchester United debut as a late addition to their Europa League squad on Feb. 25, 2016 against Midtjylland. In his first appearance, let alone start, for the Red Devils, he notched a brace and greased the skids on a hype train just starting to leave the station.
From there, Rashford just kept on rolling. He scored another brace in his Premier League debut, just three days after his Europa induction, almost single-handedly knocking off Arsenal. In his first taste of the Manchester Derby, Rashford came up aces yet again.
The 18-year-old's knack for making memorable debuts carried over to the national team, too. He already found the back of the net in his England debut, and went for the triple dip in Tuesday's first appearance with the U21s. He's running out of debuts to make, but there are two biggies left that he'll likely relish the opportunity to keep his track record running in: the Champions League and the World Cup.
