Southgate provides update on Manchester United star’s injury after being substituted in win over Malta.

Marcus Rashford entered the field as a starter for the England national team on Friday night. But had to be substituted in the second half after having a chance to collide with a teammate.

England manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed that Marcus Rashford’s injury is not as serious as many people think. After being substituted in the second half of the Euro 2024 qualifying round last Friday night.

The Manchester United striker clashed with Liverpool teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold after an hour of the game. He was injured and unable to continue playing, causing Southgate to decide to send Cole Palmer onto the field instead.

There was concern that Rashford would be injured so badly that he would not be able to play for his agency, but the Lions boss has spoken out about this matter. There’s nothing to worry about.

“I think he (Rashford) will be OK,” Southgate told reporters after the 2-0 win over Malta.

“We think it is normal for collisions like this to happen. And it was a chance for Cole Palmer to experience the game. I haven’t evaluated the condition further than this. But I think that when he was substituted He’s still okay.” Report from ufabet
