There were fears about the fitness of Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford who suffered a knee injury during a practice match at St George’s Park on Monday.

Fans were uncertain whether or not the striker will feature in the World Cup but Rashford’s fitness has now been confirmed as he is expected to play a full part in training with England’s World Cup squad on Friday.

The 20-year-old Manchester United striker missed England’s opening session in Russia on Wednesday and worked separately from the main group on Thursday. But he is set to rejoin the squad as they prepare to begin their World Cup campaign against Tunisia on Monday.

Rashford scored in England’s final warm-up game against Costa Rica to claim his third goal in 19 international appearances.

He became the youngest player to score on his senior debut for England in May 2016 before making two substitute appearances at Euro 2016.
