Marcus Rashford breaks silence following England omission for Euro 2024 squad



| Last Updated:


Manchester United forward Marcus Raashford has broken his silence following his omission from the England squad for the upcoming European Championships.

On Tuesday afternoon, England manager Gareth Southgate announced his preliminary training squad for the 2024 European Championships, which includes three Manchester United players.

Kobbie Mainoo, Luke Shaw, and Harry Maguire are among the 33-man squad preparing for the tournament in Germany. Southgate has yet to finalize the 26 players who will ultimately make the trip to mainland Europe.

While these three players will gather at St. George’s Park in the coming weeks, forwards Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund, have been excluded from the squad.

The 26-year-old’s form for Erik ten Hag’s side this season is the reason why he has been left out of the Three Lions squad.

“So, with Marcus, I just feel that other players in that area of the pitch have had better seasons. It’s as simple as that,” admitted Southgate.

Rashford made a notable impact at the 2022 World Cup with three goals for England but has not been selected in favour of players like Anthony Gordon and Bukayo Saka.

On an Instagram story following the announcement of the squad, Rashford wrote: “Wishing Gareth and the boys all the best for the up and coming tournament.”

Rashford instead will be available for United’s entire pre-season tour, with the club once against travelling to the United States.
