says he thinks is ‘okay’ after the star was injured during ’s win over Malta.

The Three Lions laboured to a 2-0 win at Wembley on Friday night, with an own goal from Enrico Pepe and a strike maintaining their unbeaten run in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Rashford started the game but looked pretty poor, before being forced to come off just after the hour mark after colliding with .

The forward appeared to be in some pain and received medical attention before being replaced by debutant Cole Palmer.

With United going through an injury crisis, this is the last thing Erik ten Hag and co. need, even if the forward is struggling for form.

Thankfully, it sounds like the 26-year-old has just sustained a minor knock.

In his post-match press conference, Southgate said: ‘I think he [Rashford] is probably okay.

‘We just thought given the nature of the collision and it was a chance to get Cole in to the game. I haven’t assessed too much but I think he was okay when he came off.’

While Rashford may be fine, United have another injury worry to sweat over, with goalkeeper Andre Onana appearing to pick up an injury on Friday night, after coming off after 81 minutes in Cameroon’s 3-0 win over Mauritius.

The Red Devils have nine players in the treatment room currently and are next in action at Everton next Sunday.
