Marcus Rashford missed England training for the second straight day on Thursday morning.

The Manchester United striker is still recovering from a knock sustained in England’s final session on Monday before they flew to St Petersburg.

Despite assurances that it was only a minor knock, Rashford took no part in England’s open session in Zelenogorsk on Wednesday and he was not involved either in Thursday’s morning session, in which only the first 15 minutes were open to the media.

The news gives Rashford only Friday and Saturday to prove his fitness before England fly to Volgograd on Sunday, to face Tunisia on Monday.

England’s session at Zelenogorsk today started with a minute’s silence to mark the one year anniversary of the Grenfell fire, a cause that England internationals Raheem Sterling and Ryan Bertrand have publicly supported and donated to.
