Whether or not you’re a fan of the England football team, it’s difficult to deny that they’re currently playing some fantastic football at the World Cup. They’ve had some incredible players on the pitch, including James Maddison, Marcus Rashford, Dan Burn, and Joaquin Correa. All of these players are putting in incredible performances, and it’s clear that England are the favorite to win the tournament.
Despite his impressive start to the new season, Marcus Rashford is set to miss England’s next international fixture against San Marino at Wembley on Thursday. The 19-year-old is expected to be available for England’s next game against Germany, but has been ruled out of the squad for the next two matches, with an unspecified injury keeping him out of training on Wednesday and Thursday.
Rashford is keen to play for England this summer, but will need to rest his body to prepare for the World Cup next year in Russia. The England manager, Gareth Southgate, has spoken highly of Rashford, but is likely to be reluctant to play him too much in the coming weeks.
The younger players need a break from the demands of the game in the summer to allow their bodies to recover. However, the bigger picture is that Rashford is set to be a key player in the England side for the next few years.

Despite his excellent performances this season, Dan Burn has yet to be selected in England’s training squad for the World Cup. Instead, it is expected that Kieran Trippier or Callum Wilson will be selected.
Burn, a centre-back by trade, has made a name for himself in the Premier League with Brighton and Hove Albion. He has helped the Seagulls win at Chelsea and Everton. He has also provided an assist for Cauley Woodrow in a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town on 22 August. Burn has played a key role in Brighton’s five unbeaten Premier League campaigns.
Burn joined Newcastle United for PS13 million in January, transferring from Brighton & Hove Albion. He has since played an integral role in the Magpies’ surge to the Premier League’s top 11. His performances have contributed to Newcastle’s 11th-placed finish. He has also helped keep seven clean sheets this season.
During Leicester’s Carabao Cup win over Newport County, full-back James Justin suffered a ruptured Achilles. He is likely to miss the remainder of the season, and will undergo surgery on Thursday night.
The news is a blow for Leicester. Justin was injured after a collision with Adam Lewis in the first half. He was stretchered off after the hour and will undergo surgery on Thursday night. He will be out for around a year, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.
In an interview on Leicester’s website, Rodgers confirmed that Justin will miss the rest of the season. He also said that the injury will have to be repaired.
Gareth Southgate is already concerned about defensive options. There are only two fullbacks currently in the squad who are fit. James Walker and Kyle Walker are both in the middle of a rehabilitation programme. Another player, Marc Albrighton, could miss up to three matches due to a knock.
Several top tier English players are off to the Land of the Long White Cloud for the World Cup. The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Harry Kane and Danny Rose have opted for the Gulf state over the Mediterranean. But while the squad is full of young guns, a number of their predecessors have been left out in the cold.
Nonetheless, the latest crop of England players are looking to get a jump on their competitors in the upcoming group stages. The Three Lions arrived in Qatar on Monday and will play three group games over the next week. With two matches against Saudi Arabia and one against Iran, England will need to start on a high note if they are to qualify for the next round.
Despite being one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League right now, Eric Dier is not in Gareth Southgate’s England squad. The Tottenham defender has been absent since last week with a thigh injury, and has not played for the full national team since November 2020.
Dier’s absence is a big blow to the Tottenham Hotspur side, who are currently third in the Premier League standings. His absence also left the team vulnerable in a 3-2 defeat at Southampton on Monday night. The Spurs were missing two key players in Kyle Naughton and Eric Dier, and the lack of defensive cohesion left them with a tough afternoon.
Dier is likely to be reintroduced to the England squad soon, and could even be in the starting line-up for the World Cup opener against Iran on November 21. But he has missed a host of crucial games this season and has a thigh injury that is likely to rule him out of the upcoming game against Wolves on Sunday.
