    In the hours following the loss, Rashford, along with Manchester United teammate Jadon Sancho and Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka, endured racial abuse online.

    The Manchester United striker, 23, who came off the bench in the final minutes of extra time to be in the lineup for the shootout, released a statement on social media in which he reflected on England’s summer at Euro 2020 and his miss in the dramatic penalty shootout that ended Sunday’s final against Italy.

    Rashford wrote a long letter to the fans on Monday night, thanking them for their support, praising his England teammates, and apologizing for missing the spot in the shootout.

    “I don’t even know where to start and I don’t even know how to put into words how I’m feeling at this exact time,” he began.

     

    “I’ve had a difficult season, I think that’s been clear for everyone to see and I probably went into that final with a lack of confidence.

    “I’ve always backed myself for a penalty but something didn’t feel quite right. During the long run-up, I was saving myself a bit of time and unfortunately, the result was not what I wanted.

    “I felt as though I had let my teammates down. I felt as if I’d let everyone down.

     

    “A penalty was all I had been asked to contribute for the team. I can score penalties in my sleep so why not that one? It’s been playing in my head over and over since I struck the ball and there’s probably not a word to quite describe how it feels.

     

    “Final. 55 years. 1 penalty. History. All I can say is sorry. I wish it had gone differently.

     

    “Whilst I continue to say sorry I want to shout out my teammates. This summer has been one of the best camps I’ve experienced and you’ve all played a role in that.
