Rashford A Concern For England

Rashford A Concern For England

"Marcus Rashford took part in light training this afternoon and will hopefully rejoin the group tomorrow", England said on their official Twitter account along with a video of Rashford in action.

The pair are seen as the king of social media within the England sqaud and they proved that on Tuesday morning.

"Across three weeks, we have been really pleased to get the 23 we picked through all of the sessions".

England's Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd is now less than a week away, with anticipation and excitement sure to go up another notch when the team lands in Russian Federation just two days before the World Cup starts.

Southgate hopes the atmosphere of the Country Club ForRest Mix in Repino, on the Gulf of Finland and less than an hour away from St Petersburg, can help continue the squad's positive mindset which has grown during the course of the warm-up matches.

"All of them play in the best domestic competition in the world, the Premiership, all of them playing for the best teams, all of them with experience of playing Champions League, which is a high level of football, obviously".

"You just have to make sure you put in the pressure on the training field and if you get given a chance, take it. Everybody is looking forward to getting to the first game".

Gareth Southgate has told England's World Cup-bound squad to entertain the nation's football fans during their time in Russian Federation.

How far can England progress in this summer's World Cup?

He said: "The World Cup is the biggest tournament in football".

"For us it is about working hard and training hard until the game, then going out there and having some fun".

And will Spurs fans secretly be hoping Harry Kane doesn't win the Golden Boot as you do wonder if Daniel Levy will be able to resist if the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona or PSG coming knocking at White Hart Lane with their respective cheque books in August?

"And people have said I'm an intelligent footballer, so I have to learn off the other players that are intelligent and play in the same position as well".

"That is important for us, important for the way we work. The dream is still alive and you've got to keep it alive". But even if we don't beat the Germans in the last-eight, it will represent a decent tournament and give Southgate firm foundations for the Euros in two years time.
