Rashford has previously notched 40 caps for England despite still only being 23 years of age.
His starting spot at this summer’s Euros, however, is somewhat up in the air.
Rashford had a decent season with Man United which saw him net 21 and assist 15 in 57 outings. But with Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho having superb campaigns, they could perhaps take Rashford’s starting spot at Euro 2020.

Rashford to undergo surgery
Regardless of how much he plays at Euro 2020, though, Rashford will be undergoing surgery following the tournament.
The Mirror are reporting that the United man is planning to undergo the surgery on at least one of his ongoing issues.
Rashford has had to deal with shoulder and foot problems throughout the club campaign but United have gave him their support to finish the season with England before getting any surgery.
However, the Mirror add that this has left Man United fearing Rashford will miss the start of next season if England are able to make it to the final in Wembley:
