Marcus Rashford will return to full England training on Friday, following an injury picked up earlier in the week.
That’s according to Sky Sports News. Manchester United’s 20-year-old had trained alone on Thursday, but thankfully, he’s back in action with the group.
With England’s World Cup opener now just days away, it’s a big injury boost that he’s seemingly now back in contention to feature against Tunisia.
Following an excellent performance against Costa Rica last time out, Rashford has every chance of earning the start. His sheer pace, raw ability and youthful exuberance could be key for the Three Lions. Obviously, I’m biased, but I’d certainly throw him in there and see what he can do.
Even if he doesn’t get the nod to play from the off, at least he’s now in contention and ready to go. We all know just how explosive he is, and if he’s used as a second-half substitute when the opposing defenders are looking a little tired, Rashford could certainly make an impact in that capacity.
Now it’s just a waiting game. We’re all desperate to see if the lad from Wythenshawe has done enough to earn Gareth Southgate’s trust. I’ve got everything crossed for him and I’m praying he gets the start…
