Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has been withdrawn from the England squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the FA have confirmed.

Rashford reported for England duty with a foot injury that ruled him out of the 5-0 win over San Marino on Thursday.

The FA have now confirmed Rashford will not feature against Albania on Sunday and Poland three days later.

“Marcus Rashford will play no part in England’s forthcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers,” read an FA statement.

“Rashford reported to St. George’s Park with an injury that ruled him out of the 5-0 win against San Marino and, following further assessment, it has been decided he will continue his rehabilitation with Manchester United.”

Rashford injured his foot in Manchester United’s Europa League win over AC Milan last week. The striker did not feature at the weekend against Leicester City in the FA Cup.
