Marcus Rashford missed England's first training session in Russia on Wednesday as a precaution after picking up a knee strain.

Rashford sat out on the advice of England's medical staff after sustaining what manager Gareth Southgate described on Tuesday as a "slight knock" during the squad's final training session at St George's Park, but the problem is not expected to affect his availability for Monday's opening World Cup match against Tunisia in Volgograd.

"We have another week of preparation and a lot of competition for places, as you know," Southgate told reporters on Tuesday upon arrival at Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg.

Rashford, who scored 13 goals in all competitions for Manchester United this season, is battling for a starting spot against Tunisia and strengthened his case with a goal in the 2-0 friendly win over Costa Rica on Thursday at Elland Road.
