He won a free-kick, which Rashford brilliantly converted (50), and then tucked in at the back post (51) moments later to set his country up for an ultimately comfortable win in the first all-British World Cup finals clash. Rashford had already scored in the first game’s thrashing of Iran, and his excellent second (68) underlined his own fine form, picking up a ball over the top from sub-Kalvin Phillips before cutting inside his marker and firing through the legs of Danny Ward.
