Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford trained with England on Sunday afternoon
Manchester United star Marcus Rashford eased the club’s tension over his injury scare after participating in a training session for England. The 26-year-old collided with England teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold during the 2-0 victory against Malta in UEFA EURO 2024 qualifiers.
England manager Gareth Southgate substituted Rashford for Cole Palmer in the 61st minute against Malta after an injury concern. The 26-year-old received an on-field treatment from the England’s medical staff before the substitution, leaving concern over his situation.
United have faced an injury crisis this season that has crippled their current season as they failed to find balance. The Red Devils have lost nine out of 18 games in all competitions, conceding 30 goals and scoring only 25 so far this season.
According to the report from Metro, Rashford participated in the training session with his England teammate on Sunday afternoon. England will face North Macedonia in their last UEFA EURO 24 qualifiers, having already qualified for the EURO 24 tournament.
Rashford has struggled with form for the Red Devils since the start of the current season. The 26-year-old has appeared in 16 matches while contributing with only one goal and three assists in all competitions.
The England international ended last season as United’s leading goal scorer yet failed to continue with his form. Rashford has regressed to the inconsistencies and lack of productivity that stopped him from reaching his potential before last season.
Many football experts and fans have criticized the Englishman for being too selfish and failing to contribute to his teammates. Rashford has incredible pass, close control and dribbling ability which he uses to go past opponents from the left flank. However, the 26-year-old is too one-dimensional in his attack which makes him predictable for the opponents.
The England international relies too much on cutting inside from wide and creating space to shoot. The singular style of play makes it easy for the opponents to predict Rashford’s actions. The Englishman can benefit from mixing things and going to byline or opting to assist his teammates.
