(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
Marcus Rashford's second-half double propelled England to a 3-0
win over neighbours Wales on Tuesday that sent them into the World
Cup last 16 as Group B winners and ended Welsh hopes of reaching
the knockout stage, trend reports citing reuters .
The encounter came to life when Rashford curled home a free kick
from the edge of the area in the 50th minute before Phil Foden
arrived unmarked at the far post to sidefoot Harry Kane's cross
into the net a minute later.
Rashford then inflicted a final blow when he cut inside and
somehow managed to find the net with a shot that went through the
legs of goalkeeper Danny Ward in the 68th.
The win moved England to seven points and set up a tie against
Senegal in the next round, while Wales finished bottom with one
point as their first World Cup in 64 years ended without a victory
and only one goal scored in three games.
