Marcus Rashford and his England colleagues are busy preparing for the Three Lions’ next Euro 2020 fixture against Scotland.

When they are not training, the players have been playing table tennis at the team hotel.

Marcus Rashford shared a picture of himself playing table tennis with Raheem Sterling, and it backfired.


Rashford’s technique came under scrutiny from Rio Ferdinand and then current United teammate Bruno Fernandes.

Ferdinand told Rashford, ‘U can’t hold the bat like that’, and Fernandes agreed, writing that it ‘says everything about his quality as a ping pong player’.

Rashford did defend himself, responding to Ferdinand, ‘Don’t fix what’s not broken’, showing he believes he has a technique which works for him.

Rashford and England are preparing to face Scotland on Friday night.

Harry Maguire is expected to return to the England starting line-up for the fixture. If England win, a spot will be secured in the Euro 2020 knockout rounds.
