Marcus Rashford deprived of Euro?


By: Manu Tournoux

The possibility of seeing England go to Euro 2024 without Marcus Rashford is a possibility that Alan Shearer does not rule out.

Like Kylian Mbappé with the France team, Marcus Rashford was completely missed during the March gathering of the English selection. But the comparison stops there. Because if the PSG player continues to shine and score since the start of the season, the music is not there even for the Manchester United man. So much so that some are openly questioning his presence with the Three Lions during Euro 2024.

Last season, Rashford shone, achieving his career goals record with thirty goals in all competitions. This year, the situation is very different and the Mancunian striker, more of a potential starter in the mind of his coach Erik ten Hag, has only scored eight goals in thirty-five appearances in all competitions contested by his team. club. The player's behavior off the field also questioned his coach, particularly after the discovery of twelve hours of drinking by the Englishman in Belfast last January.

More on the wing

Former England international and Newcastle figure, Alan Shearer has expressed his doubts about the presence of Marcus Rashford in Germany for the Euro which will take place from June 14 to July 14. “ If Rashford plays well between now and the end of the season, it could potentially force the manager's handhe told The Athletic. But I don't think it's safe to go, no. » And the consultant continues, on a more tactical aspect this time. “ If he was to make the team it wouldn't be ahead of Harry Kane, (Ollie) Watkins or (Ivan) Toney, it would be as a wing forward. »

Although he should still be part of Gareth Southgate's list, Marcus Rashford clearly seems to be losing momentum. Whether in club or selection. In the Three Lions jersey, he scored seventeen goals in sixty caps. His presence in Germany would remain a plus for England, even if doubts arise.
