Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford’s recent holiday in New York City has attracted criticism, with some suggesting that he should be focusing on his rehabilitation and making himself available for the England team. Rashford recently pulled out of the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine due to a toe injury. However, talkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino believes that the striker’s social media posts from New York will not go down well with England boss Gareth Southgate, potentially harming Rashford’s relationship with the national team in the future. While some argue that Rashford is entitled to take a break due to his injury, others point to examples of committed players who turned up for their national teams despite not being fully fit, citing Liam Brady’s appearance for the Republic of Ireland against Switzerland in the early 1980s as evidence of this. Rashford’s trip to New York also means that other players, such as Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka, and Harry Kane, have the opportunity to shine for England in his absence. Despite Southgate’s comments that England will have to do without Rashford, some believe that there is an element of frustration on his part, particularly given Rashford’s excellent form for United.
