Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford has moved to ease fears over a potential knee injury on the eve of the World Cup.

Rashford, 20, scored a fabulous goal in England's last warm-up game, a 2-0 win over Costa Rica, and was pushing to start his country's first game against Tunisia on Monday when reports broke that he had picked up a knee injury in training.

However any fears of Rashford missing any games or even the whole tournament were alleviated when the player posted on social media to say that there was nothing to worry about.

Earlier England manager Gareth Southgate had confirmed that Rashford had picked up a knock but he didn't seem too concerned about the United forward.

Rashford is expected to be in direct competition with Manchester City's Raheem Sterling to see who will play alongside Harry Kane in Southgate's 3-5-2.
