The Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford who missed an open training session with a knock, but fears he could miss the tournament have assured fans he is fit enough to play the World Cup tournament.
The 20-year-old Manchester United forward is currently in Russia with the England squad ahead of their World Cup campaign. However, there were fears the 20-year-old could be forced to miss some or all of the opening group games with an injury. He was seen hobbling out of a training session in Repino, but he has since allayed those fears.
“Thanks for the messages I’ve been getting,” he Tweeted to his 1.13 million followers.
“Picked up a slight niggle but nothing to worry about.”
