Marcus Rashford has reassured England fans that there is ‘nothing to worry about’ on his knee injury front going into the World Cup.
Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate revealed on Tuesday that the 20-year-old had picked up a knock in Monday’s private practice match.
Southgate said the medical staff are confident the injury ‘is not too serious’, suggesting he should be available for the Group G clash with Tunisia on Monday.

On Wednesday, Rashford was a notable absentee in training as England held their first session in Russia – having flown on Tuesday.
However, the striker took to Twitter on Wednesday night to allay any fears over the extent of his problem.
‘Thanks for the messages I’ve been getting,’ he wrote.
‘Picked up a slight niggle but nothing to worry about. #ThreeLions.’
But it remains a concern for Southgate when Rashford was pushing Raheem Sterling for a place in the starting line-up, even though the Manchester City forward remains the favourite to partner Harry Kane in the England attack.
The Manchester United striker excelled in England’s final warm-up game against Costa Rica at Elland Road last week – scoring a scorching opener in the 2-0 win.
