Gareth Southgate, England’s manager is certain that Marcus Rashford did not suffer any serious injuries during the 2-0 victory over Malta on Friday.
Rashford began the match but was forced to leave the field shortly after an hour due to a collision with Liverpool’s right-back Trent Alexander Arnold. Alexander-Arnold emerged unscathed from the accident.
Southgate reassured fans that Rashford was removed from the game immediately following the injury.
Southgate told the press after his match that he thought Rashford was probably fine.
We just felt that given the nature and severity of the collision, it would be a good opportunity to bring Cole Palmer into the match. “I haven’t evaluated too much, but I believe he was fine when he fell off.”
United has a long list of injuries ahead of their return to Premier League play on 26 November against Everton, still in shock after the 10 point deduction due to Financial Fair Play violations.
Rasmus Hojlund, the striker, is suffering from a hamstring injury. Anthony Martial, Alejandro Garnacho, and Antony are likely to be Erik ten Haag’s first choice wing pair if Rashford needs any additional time off.
The United officials were also concerned when they saw goalkeeper Andre Onana drag himself off to Cameroon.
Christian Eriksen is currently out, as are Casemiro and Tyrell Malacia. Luke Shaw, Jonny Evan, Lisandro Martinez, Jonny Shaw, Luke Shaw.
