Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho must shine under Erik ten Hag or miss out on the World Cup, warns Gareth Southgate... as the England boss calls Harry Maguire the best centre-back at Manchester United and tells Tammy Abraham to challenge Harry Kane

Gareth Southgate has warned Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho that they will miss out on the World Cup finals in Qatar if they don't perform for new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.

The United players, both of whom missed penalties in the Euro 2020 final shootout, are firmly out of the England reckoning, with Sancho last having been picked for the squad in October 2021, whereas Rashford last made it in November last year.

Both were seen as the future of England in their teens but now Sancho, 22, and Rashford, 24, are on the periphery and look set to miss out in Qatar this autumn.
