Marcus Rashford sits out England training for second day in a row

Marcus Rashford has again missed England training ahead of their World Cup opener against Tunisia on Monday.

Rashford has a knock to his knee but the England camp say the injury is not a major concern.

The 20-year-old was able to do some individual training in the gym at the team hotel.

Rashford impressed in England’s final warm-up game against Costa Rica last week, prompting speculation he may be in the starting line-up to face Tunisia.

Rashford also attempted to allay concerns about his fitness on Twitter on Wednesday evening.

“Thanks for the messages I’ve been getting,” he posted. “Picked up a slight niggle but nothing to worry about.”

Southgate and the rest of the England squad continued their preparations for the Tunisia game with a morning training session at Spartak Zelenogorsk.

Before the session began, the squad observed a minute’s silence to mark the anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire.
