Away from all the transfer speculation, footage of England’s most recent training footage has emerged and Manchester United’s very own ‘nutmeg king’ has struck again. Rashford, who completed more nutmegs than any other player in Europe last season, added Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka to his long list of victims.
The England squad can be seen passing the ball around in their usual rondo drill, with the aim being not to let the two players in the ring intercept the ball.
Nicely done, @MarcusRashford 🥜

Rashford, who has gone viral on social media for training ground nutmegs on several occasions, slipped it through Bukayo Saka’s legs and the embarrassment was inevitable.
The Arsenal midfielder started England’s 1-0 win over the Czech Republic earlier this week but Rashford is yet to feature from the start in this summer’s European Championships, making three appearances from the bench.
