Man United sweating on fitness of Marcus Rashford after injury

Credit where it’s due, UEFA have done a brilliant job with the Nations League, although it was heartbreak for England last night, getting beaten 3-1 by Holland.

The Reds have two players within Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad and in fact, both hit the back of the net in Portugal yesterday; albeit Jesse Lingard’s cool finish was ruled out thanks to a marginal offside (cheers VAR)…

Rashford’s goal came from the penalty spot as he coolly slotted home after winning the spot-kick himself following a hefty tackle from Matthijs de Ligt.

Shortly after said incident, Rashford’s game was over as he picked up an injury. Denzel Dumfries rushed back to make a last-ditch tackle on the 21-year-old and the United #10 required treatment.

According to the Daily Mirror, United are ‘sweating’ on Rashford’s fitness ahead of their pre-season tour starting next month.

What’s good news is the fact that Rashford wasn’t immediately substituted following the tackle. The young striker soldiered on to half-time, at which point he was replaced by Harry Kane.

Hopefully, it’s nothing serious. For me, pre-season is the most important time in the campaign as you build up those fitness levels before the serious stuff starts.
