Marcus Rashford misses England training ahead of World Cup

Manchester United and England striker Marcus Rashford has missed another training session in the build-up to his side’s World Cup opener against Tunisia, which is to be played on Monday evening.

Rashford picked up a knock before the team flew out to Russia and was subsequently kept out of Gareth Southgate’s first session in the country yesterday.

The Manchester United man has played down concerns over the knee injury, but he was once again absent for England’s second day of training and instead will conduct separate preparatory work at the team hotel.

Rashford’s absence is understood to be precautionary, although it could harm his chances of starting the Group G clash with Tunisia in Volgograd.

The 20-year-old thrust himself into contention for a starting berth ahead of Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling with a man-of-the-match display in England’s final warm-up game against Costa Rica.
