Southgate plays down Rashford injury scare

Sports | 14 Jun 2018

Marcus Rashford will have an injury assessed, says England manager Gareth Southgate.

Rashford shone with his opening goal in the final warm-up match against Costa Rica last week and England are hopeful he will be fit for their Group G opener against Tunisia on Tuesday (HK time).

"Marcus took a slight knock, but nothing too serious, so we will have a look at that," Southgate said upon the team's arrival in St Petersburg. "But other than that, everybody came through fine. Across three weeks, we have been really pleased to get the 23 we picked through all of the sessions."

England will also face World Cup debutants Panama and Belgium in the group.

"We are obviously excited to be here now," said captain Harry Kane. "For us it is about working hard and training hard until the game, then going out there and having some fun."
