Marcus Rashford is a major doubt for England’s opening World Cup qualifier against San Marino on Thursday due to a foot injury, while Bukayo Saka has been ruled out of the match at Wembley.
Manchester United striker Rashford is yet to take part in England’s team training, but has been working in the gym as he looks to recover from the injury sustained in Manchester United’s 1-0 win against AC Milan in the Europa League last Thursday.
The 23-year-old missed United’s FA Cup quarter-final loss to Leicester on Sunday, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying Rashford “wasn’t close” to playing despite being named in Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad.
Meanwhile, Saka is yet to join the England camp as Arsenal continue to assess the hamstring injury suffered against Tottenham.
Saka was able to play 74 minutes of Arsenal’s 3-3 draw with West Ham after the Spurs defeat, but he will not feature for England on Thursday.
It is hoped the 19-year-old, who made his England debut last October, will be available for the fixtures against Albania and Poland.
Chelsea’s Mason Mount will join manager Southgate for the press conference on Thursday evening.
