Marcus Rashford talks about how Gareth Southgate

Marcus Rashford has talked about some of the changes in the England camp since Gareth Southgate took over as manager. He has focused on how hard they train.

After the Euro 2020 final, the Manchester United forward fell out of favor with the Three Lions and had to work his way back into the team.

He came off the bench to score his first World Cup goal against Iran on the first day of play. He had said that Southgate’s training sessions, which didn’t exist before, helped him be so sharp.

Marcus Rashford told the press, “Everyone is ready, and I’m raring to go.” He also said, “Training has been good for the guys who haven’t been getting as much time.”

“I don’t think training has ever really been a problem for this team since Gareth has been the manager.

“Before Gareth was manager, it might have been a bit of a problem with the quality of training and how much people cared about it, but since he’s been in charge, it’s been tough.”

Rashford, who made his England debut in a warm-up game before Euro 2016 under Roy Hodgson, said, “I was only there for a short time, but the level of training wasn’t as high.

“It’s black and white for players.” You can’t expect to play well if you don’t train well.

“It’s clear that things have changed for the better. We’ve done much better in the big tournaments, but we’ve also played better and won more of the games we’ve played with England this year.

“I don’t usually leave a game with England feeling like we’re going to lose.”
