On Tuesday, United’s Brazilian, Portuguese, and English contingents, as well as Dutchman Tyrell Malacia, all reported to the club’s Carrington training center.

Casemiro, Fred, and Antony were all on the field when Brazil was ousted in a penalty shootout by Croatia, while Portugal’s Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot started the next day’s 1-0 loss to Morocco.

Marcus Rashford scored three goals in five appearances for England in Qatar, while Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw started all five games.

The group might face Championship leaders Burnley in the fourth round of the League Cup on Wednesday at Old Trafford.

Dalot travelled to Carrington on Friday to have an apparent hamstring injury suffered against Morocco examined, Maguire is set to start owing to a lack of suitable centre-backs at United, and other World Cup participants are in contention for inclusion.

When Fernandes arrived in Carrington, he was accompanied by his agent, Rui Guimaraes.

Four weeks after it was revealed that Jadon Sancho had travelled to the Netherlands for an individual training program, he is yet to report for squad training.

On December 27, United will return to Premier League action when Nottingham Forest visits.

Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane, both center-backs, are not expected to return until next week because they were engaged in the World Cup final between Argentina and France.

If they return to training on Monday, they will only have one session before the game versus Forest the following day.

Martinez became United’s sixth World Cup winner, following England’s Bobby Charlton, Nobby Stiles, and John Connelly in 1966 and France midfielder Paul Pogba in 2018.
