Marcus Rashford will be invited to train with the England squad before their forthcoming friendlies against Australia and Portugal for experience but will not be included in the Euro 2016 squad, according to Sky sources.
Hodgson and his coaching staff have been so impressed with the teenager's impact at Old Trafford in the last three months they have invited him to train with the senior squad prior to this summer's tournament.
