BREAKING: Rashford out of England's second training session

BREAKING: Rashford out of England's second training session

14 Jun 2018, 11:25

England forward Marcus Rashford is set to miss his side's training for the second day running due to a minor knee injury. 

The Manchester United ace was again absent from England training as the World Cup opener against Tunisia edged closer.
The 20-year-old bolstered his chances of starting Monday's Group G clash with a man-of-the-match display in the 2-0 friendly send-off win against Costa Rica last Thursday.

However, Rashford's hopes of featuring against Tunisia appear to be diminishing after missing the second day of training in Russia with a knee complaint. The Football Association indicates it is a precautionary measure and manager Gareth Southgate called it a "slight knock" upon England's arrival.

However, he took it to his Twitter account to allay concerns about his fitness. 

Thanks for the messages I've been getting. Picked up a slight niggle but nothing to worry about 👊🏾 #ThreeLions
