Manchester United to allow Marcus Rashford play for England

According to reports, Manchester United have confirmed Marcus Rashford will join up with the England squad on Thursday after an injury scare in our 3-1 win against Everton last weekend.

The player was assumed to have a shoulder injury suffered against the Toffees, but will now join the rest of the England squad.

The Three Lions play against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has heaped praise on Rashford for his work off the field.

He told The Big Issue: “Marcus is a credit to everyone in the way he goes about his business and, of course, I’m sure he wished he didn’t have to do it either.

“We’re all in the situation where people need to start doing things and he’s at the top of that tree just now.

“He’s a credit to football. Forget any rivalry, it’s nothing because we all have the same view as Marcus on this. He is definitely making his voice heard.”
