England boss Southgate gives World Cup hope to Man Utd forward Rashford

England manager Gareth Southgate has not ruled out a recall for Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United duo Rashford and Jadon Sancho will not feature for England in the upcoming Nations League fixtures against Italy and Germany.

But Southgate insists Rashford could return for his World Cup squad.

“It is only eight weeks until we will be naming our squad for Qatar so every minute counts,” he told reporters.

“He [Rashford] is a player we know well so if he can perform at a high level in the next few weeks, he of course will be under consideration.”
