In-form forward Marcus Rashford suffered a knock in England’s final training session before flying out for the World Cup, Gareth Southgate has confirmed.
Southgate’s squad touched down in Russia on Tuesday with Rashford among the 23-man party who are hoping to lift the trophy for the first time since 1966.
Rashford, 20, netted a stunning goal in the 2-0 friendly win over Costa Rica on Thursday to advance his case for a starting place in Volgograd.
England’s other group opponents are Panama and the world’s third-ranked side Belgium.
