The Manchester United youngster had sat out of two sessions this week with a knee complaint – missing training completely on Wednesday and then working away from the main group on Thursday.

Rashford picked up the problem in a training match before the Three Lions team flew out to Russia.

There were fears the 20-year-old could miss Monday’s opening game of the World Cup against Tunisia.

But he was pictured back with the Three Lions team on Friday morning, as they stepped up their preparation for the game in Volgograd.

England boss Gareth Southgate now has a full complement of 23 players to choose from for their World Cup opener.

However, it appears he has already made up with mind with his starting XI apparently leaked to the press on Friday.

If accurate, Rashford will be rested against Tunisia, perhaps giving him a little extra time to prove his full fitness before he makes his World Cup debut.


The 20-year-old has been one of England’s most exciting players in the immediate build-up to the World Cup – scoring a stunning goal and named man-of-the-match in their final warm-up friendly against Costa Rica.

He has three goals in 19 appearances in an England shirt.
