 Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka to miss England World Cup qualifiers against Albania, Poland with injury |  Football News


Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka will not play a role in England’s World Cup qualifiers against Albania and Poland due to injury.

Rashford traveled to St. George’s Park with a foot injury that ruled him out of the 5-0 win over San Marino on Thursday and, after further evaluation, it was decided he would continue his rehabilitation with Manchester United.

Rashford missed United’s FA Cup quarter-final loss to Leicester last Sunday after suffering a foot problem against AC Milan in the Europa League.

Saka had remained at Arsenal for further assessment on an ongoing obstacle issue in hopes of joining the England squad, but will no longer be available.

Saka was injured against Tottenham before playing 74 minutes of the 3-3 draw with West Ham.

England manager Gareth Southgate is not calling for a replacement for the two players.

Southgate also spoke about forward Harry Kane’s handling of playing time during the international triple header, with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho saying he hoped the forward could come to a ‘compromise’ with Southgate on playing time.

“If I allowed Harry to make that decision, he would play every minute,” Southgate said on Wednesday. ” It will not happen.

“We have to be aware that he had extra time last Thursday and another high intensity game last Sunday, so we have situations with a lot of players, really, and we have to make sure that we are handling the game properly. ”

Kane was rested for the comfortable victory over FIFA’s lowest-ranked team San Marino, with Ollie Watkins scoring in his international debut and Dominic Calvert-Lewin striking twice.
