Player News: Man United star leaves England camp due to injury

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford set to miss Nations League double header

The Football Association has confirmed that Manchester United star Marcus Rashford will not play a part in England’s next two fixtures.

The Three Lions will now have to face Iceland and Belgium without the United striker. One of the nation’s best players, he will be missed.

Rashford was amongst a number of United stars who picked up a knock last week at Goodison Park. Although he saw out the game, Solskjaer confirmed that the player had injured his shoulder.

The setback even delayed his arrival at the England training camp. He played no part in the Three Lions’ win against the Republic of Ireland yesterday.

Rashford will now return to United. It remains to be seen if he will be ready for action once the Premier League resumes.

United next face a struggling West Bromwich Albion at home. It gives us an opportunity to get our first league home win of the season.

The prospect of going in without our top scorer is ever a good thing to happen. While we still have enough in our tank to see off the Baggies, they must not be underestimated.

Chelsea learned that the hard way earlier in the season. Hopefully, Solskjaer will avoid that pitfall.

United are currently eight points off the top with a game in hand. A good run of results can see us close down the gap to the summit.
