Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford, couldn't hold back his tears after playing a crucial role in his team's FA Cup triumph on Saturday, May 25.

The English forward, who has endured a difficult 2023–24 season and missed out on England's provisional squad for the 2024 Euros, helped the Red Devils defeat Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

Although he didn't score, Rashford impressed during his 74 minutes on the pitch, notably providing a crossfield pass to Alejandro Garnacho that led to Kobbie Mainoo's match-winning goal, as noted by the Express.

Often criticised for his defensive work rate, the 26-year-old put in a solid defensive effort, helping Erik ten Hag's charges keep the newly crowned Premier League champions at bay for most of the game.

Despite a late goal from Jeremy Doku that created some tense moments, the Red Devils held on to secure a vital win over their 'noisy neighbours,' avenging last season's defeat in the same competition's final.

After the final whistle, an emotional Rashford was seen in uncontrollable tears, per talkSPORT.

Despite trying to hold back, the Man United academy graduate had tears streaming down his cheeks as he soaked in the moment of his team's 13th FA Cup triumph at Wembley.

Mount finally breaks Wembley curse

Meanwhile, Rashford's teammate, Mason Mount, will be the most joyful man in the Manchester United squad after he ended his Wembley hoodoo on Saturday afternoon, as reported by Sports Brief.

The victory marks Mount's first win in a Wembley final on his seventh attempt.

He was on the losing side in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 FA Cup finals against Arsenal, Leicester City, and Liverpool, respectively, as well as the 2022 Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.

Additionally, while playing for Derby County under Chelsea legend and former manager Frank Lampard, Mount lost the 2019 EFL Championship playoff final 2-1 to Aston Villa.
