Rashford replaced Sterling at half time during England’s World Cup qualifier in Malta on Friday and inspired the Three Lions to a 4-0 victory.
“Rashford, he should start on Monday (against Slovakia),” Butcher said.
“He should start England games.
“Are we breeding players in our academies to take people on? Sterling went past his fullback once on Friday and Rashford came on and did it straight away.
“That excites people. His passing may not be great, his final ball might not be great. But he gets into areas that hurt teams.
“With Harry Kane in the box, two goals and he laid one on, he’s maturing into a very good striker.”
