Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford claims he is “100% committed” to England after being chastised for a trip to New York following his absence from international duty in March.

The 25-year-old was excused from England’s squad during the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine due to injury.

England boss Gareth Southgate backed the forward’s decision to travel to the United States at the time.

“I need time to switch off and recover,” Rashford said.

“I took a short trip, four days, then went back to do rehab and just try and get ready as soon as possible.

“With injuries, you can’t predict when they’re going to happen. Occasionally you do get impact injuries. I know that I’m committed to it [England] 100%.

“People are going to say what they’re going to say. It doesn’t really bother me.”

Rashford is currently preparing for England’s next two Euro 2024 qualifiers, against Malta in Valletta on Friday and North Macedonia the following Monday at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils attacker is hoping to get back on the scoresheet after drawing blank in the last few games of the season including the FA Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley.
