Marcus Rashford sat out England’s first training session in Russia due to a knee complaint.

Preparations for the World Cup could scarcely have gone any better up until now, with Gareth Southgate’s initial 23-man selection remaining intact after beating Nigeria and Costa Rica.

Rashford shone in the latter and scored a superb opener in a man-of-the-match display, underlining his claims for a starting berth in Monday’s Group G opener against Tunisia.

However, the 20-year-old’s hopes received a setback after missing England’s first training session in Russia with a knee knock.

The football Association indicated Rashford’s absence was only a precautionary measure, with Southgate calling it a “slight knock” upon touching down on Tuesday.

The remaining 22 members of England’s squad trained at Spartak Zelenogorsk’s stadium, where around 400 local children joined dignitaries in welcoming the team to the country.

Kylian Mbappe went off injured during France training.

Kylian Mbappe has played down concerns over an injury suffered during training on Tuesday, which saw him limp off during France’s practice after being challenged by defender Adil Rami.

“I’m fine, it’s just a knock so it doesn’t matter but thank you for your messages,” the 19-year-old tweeted.

“And leave my friend Adil Rami alone, it wasn’t nasty,” he added, after fans started leaving comments on the centre-back’s Instagram after it seemed that he had injured the star youngster.

France play Australia in their opening World Cup Group C match on Saturday, before playing Peru and Denmark.
