MARCUS RASHFORD could potentially need surgery on his shoulder after spearheading England’s Euros bid, according to reports.
The Manchester United striker, 23, has been hampered by the problem since November after tearing a muscle.

And the Telegraph report that he might need to have it fixed once the campaign is over if it continues to bug him.
Rashford has played 42 times for United this season and will be a key part of England manager Gareth Southgate’s plans in the summer.
The report also says that some United players are ‘amazed’ the striker has been able to play through the pain barrier for his side.
Earlier this season, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Marcus, he’ll run through a brick wall for you and that’s the type of lad he is.
“We’ve just got to be fingers crossed it doesn’t get worse because at the moment it is still manageable.
“How serious is it? At the moment he’s getting that tiredness towards the end or that soreness towards the end that stops him from completing the games.”
The English striker has scored 18 goals for Manchester United in all competitions this season.
And his side face a busy couple months in their bid for a top-four spot, Europa League glory and FA Cup success.

And the Euros are set to begin on 11 June with the final exactly a month later at Wembley.
Solskjaer’s men face runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday having not scored in their last three games.
After the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace, the Red Devils boss admitted: ““Of course you are not happy if you don’t create enough chances to win a game.
“It has been a week with no goals. Sometimes three games sounds a lot without scoring, of course we have not conceded either, but a week in a season like this sometimes you just don’t hit the form you normally have had for many, many months.
