Jose Mourinho has challenged Gareth Southgate to show his faith in Marcus Rashford.

The young England striker has struggled for game time recently, playing just 52 minutes of a possible 650 in the Premier League this year.

It’s led to reports suggesting England manager Gareth Southgate is growing concerned at the situation. Southgate, who will be selecting his squad for the World Cup in a few months, has always insisted his players must be performing for their clubs if they are to be considered.
