“Not a chance” Southgate told to drop Rashford for Euro 2024 squad

The Manchester United star has come under fire for his performances this season.

Marcus Rashford is not good enough to make England’s squad for next year’s European championship, according to Tim Sherwood.

Having scored only one goal for Manchester United so far this season, Rashford is in serious danger of losing his place in England’s squad. The 26-year-old is facing competition from the likes of Jack Grealish and Phil Foden for a starting place in Gareth Southgate’s lineup.

Asked if he would pick Rashford for the Euros, Sherweed responded to Soccer Saturday: “No, not a chance.

“And he can thank his manager for playing his way out of the England team, unfortunately.

“I think if he was at Man City now he’s got all the attributes to be a world-class player and make the team.”

The former England international added: “For me, Jack Grealish has to be there, I’ve worked with Jack, I know what he’s like but for Phil Foden not to be in this starting lineup is criminal. Both of these players have to be in the team, we have to build teams around players with abilities like this.”

Following a 2-0 win over Malta on Friday, England will continue their Euro qualifiers with a match against North Macedonia.
