Southgate addressed the media

and explained the reasons behind the player’s omissions. “These are difficult calls,” he stated. “With Marcus, I just feel other players in that area have had better seasons. It’s as simple as that.”

Rashford had an outstanding season with Manchester United in 2022/23 and performed well at the World Cup in Qatar, scoring against Iran and Wales.

However, he struggled this season, managing just eight goals in 42 appearances across all competitions.
