Marcus Rashford will miss today’s England training session. Manchester United forward Rashford, 20, suffered a knock to his knee in England’s full scale practice match at St George’s Park on Monday.

The FA insist it is only a minor issue but are taking no chances with Rashford with the other 22 expected to train.

After landing in Saint Petersburg on Monday, Southgate said: "Marcus took a slight knock, but nothing too serious, so we will have a look at that ahead of Tuesday's session which is open for everybody to see, but other than that, everybody came through fine."

Rashford will have hoped to have forced his way into contention to start England's opener with Tunisia.

The Manchester United star scored a stunning opener at Elland Road and could be vying for a starting spot for the clash with Raheem Sterling.
