Marcus Rashford missed training for a second day in succession on Thursday as England continued their preparations for their World Cup opener against Tunisia on June 18.

Rashford “picked up a slight knock” during England’s final training session before flying to Russia, according to manager Gareth Southgate, and since arriving in the country has been unable to train.

The Manchester United striker was the only England player who missed Wednesday’s session and was again unable to take part on Thursday due to his knee problem.

But the injury is thought to be minor and Rashford could still be in contention for the Group G opener in Volgograd.

The 20-year-old was outstanding in the 2-0 friendly win over Costa Rica in Leeds and is competing with Raheem Sterling for a starting place alongside Harry Kane.
