    Rashford's Renaissance

    Although he did not get in the starting line-up against Senegal, Marcus Rashford's revival has been one of the bright parts of England's World Cup.

    It was not that long ago that Rashford was out in the cold at both club and country but has experienced an incredible turnaround this season.

    In Qatar Rashford has already netted three goals after having failed to score in his six appearances at the 2018 World Cup or in his seven appearances at the Euros.

    Things have also turned around at Man United. He has four goals and two assists already this season, which matches his record from last season in 11 fewer games.

    Now former United player Cristiano Ronaldo will also probably be amid the action, but there has been some speculation he could be dropped from the Portugal starting XI.

    Keane on Casemiro

    Roy Keane has lavished Casemiro with praise after his impressive World Cup performances with Brazil.

    The Manchester United midfielder has excelled at the World Cup so far as he looks to help his country claim the Jules Rimet trophy for the first time in 20 years.

    Keane told ITV: "I think he’s a brilliant player. You give him credit, he turns up every week, you know what you’re going to get which is a huge compliment to a player.

    "He turns up every week. He’s six foot, won the big prizes, gone to United, settled in very well. Labelled a couple years ago unfairly that he’s a sitting midfielder, he’s far from it.

    "He links up play, already got a goal in the World Cup, he’s brilliant but he turns up and has a great attitude."

    "If you were told you were going to be playing in the quarter-finals against a France team with five of their starters missing, you would accept that."
