England advanced to the World Cup round of 16 as winners of World Cup Group B with a double from Marcus Rashford and a strike from Phil Foden.

Wales needed an unlikely four-goal victory in a match they hadn’t won since 1984, but defended deeply on Tuesday to beat England in a calm first half at the Ahmad bin Ali stadium. annoyed me.

However, they succumbed after the break as Gareth Southgate’s side, who will face Senegal in the next round, increased their number of goals in the group to nine.

England closed the game just after half-time, with Rashford scoring from a free-kick in the 50th minute and Foden adding another free-kick in the 51st minute.

Rashford scored the second after making a weaving run inside the box in the 68th inning.

Wales captain Gareth Bale, who was criticized for his performance against Iran, has again been named anonymous, while the former Real Madrid star was replaced at half-time after a possible injury.

However, within six minutes of the restart, Bale’s absence was rendered meaningless by an English rapid-fire barrage.

Southgate said he was concerned Foden felt pressured after being asked to pick him up, but after the precocious Manchester City playmaker, he had nothing to worry about.

Foden were the catalyst for England’s first goal, winning with a 50th-minute south free kick forward, with Rashford curling beautifully into the corner of Ward’s goal from 25 yards.

England have not won a major trophy since winning the 1966 World Cup when the Three Lions beat Germany 4-2 in the final.
