England’s medical team will keep a close eye on the fitness of Marcus Rashford in the run-up to their Euro 2020 qualifier against Czech Republic on Friday, even though the Manchester United forward has declared himself fit for the game.
Is this the worst Manchester United team in the Premier League era?
The Daily Mail reported that the 21-year-old completed an indoor training session at St George’s Park on Monday and is set to begin full training from today, following the groin injury he incurred in his club’s 0-2 defeat to West Ham last month. The news was relayed to followers of the @utdxtra Twitter account.

Despite going off injured at London Stadium a couple of weeks ago, Rashford has played in each of Manchester United’s last three matches, featuring for the entirety of their Premier League games against Arsenal and Newcastle. [via TransferMarkt]
These Manchester United fans on Twitter are hoping that Rashford will be given a breather during the international break:
The lads desire to play for club and country is absolutely unbelievable but he desperately needs the 2 weeks to rest and recover get some of his own training in…

Of course he has, he could have no legs and he would declare himself fit.
