Man United transfer, Arsenal move: Marcus Rashford verdict after explosive England decision

Marcus Rashford will be excluded from England’s provisional squad for Euro 2024 after his disappointing season with Manchester United.

However, he is set to face a summer at home after missing the cut in Southgate’s provisional 30-man squad. Rashford will join the likes of Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Ben Chilwell who will miss the tournament in Germany.
