Marcus Rashford was delayed in joining up with the England squad ahead of Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia.
England kick off their November break with a Euro 2024 clash vs Malta at Wembley on Friday. Back the Three Lions to beat Malta 3-0 at 5/1 with bet365.
Why Marcus Rashford joined up with England squad late
Marcus Rashford has linked up with England after being called up by manager Gareth Southgate. However, the Manchester United forward was late to do so.
The reason for this is Gareth Southgate allowed the United striker time to deal with ‘personal matters’, while Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips was granted the same allowance.
Marcus Rashford has won 57 caps for England and has scored 17 goals. His latest effort came in the October break in a 3-1 win over Italy, which helped England secure their spot in Germany next year.
Rashford is expected to be involved in some capacity vs Malta and can be backed at 8/15 with Betfair to score anytime on Friday.
