“A little sore but other than that I’m feeling good. Hope you’re all having a great day!”

Rashford opted to be part of the England team for the Euros during the summer, and decided against doing a surgery at the time. He only made five substitute appearances for the Three Lions in the competition, and admitted afterwards that if he had known he wouldn’t be too involved, he would have done the surgery and miss the Euros.

Having undergone the surgery, the 23-year-old could miss up to five weeks of training, while It could be up to 12 weeks before he returned to action.
