Although there was time left in England vs. Wales, the goal scored by Marcus Rashford defined the game of the third round of group B in Qatar 2022. The Manchester United striker faced the rival defense to enter the big area, beat goalkeeper Danny Ward and make it 3-0 at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.
Gareth Southgate’s representative needed a couple of minutes to have the advantage due to the conquests of Rashford and Phil Foden. With that distance, the ‘Three Lions’ moved the chips to refresh their legs and finish off the game so as not to go into further trouble, despite the fact that the adversary showed no weapons to do damage.
Then, an attempt by the ‘Red Dragons’ was contained by the English defense. Then, a long possession began in which the balloon went from one side to the other. Center back John Stones received from Harry Maguire. Right away, the man from Manchester City played up for the intervention of Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The Liverpool winger first played for Kalvin Phillips. Immediately afterwards, the midfielder raised his head and sent a long serve to exploit Rashford’s speed. The English attacker took care of the rest: he surpassed the mark of Connor Roberts and when he found the profile, he whipped out for third.
According to Mister Chip, the goal scored by Rashford is special for the English team because it is the 100th in the entire history of the World Cup. Brazil, Germany, Argentina, Italy, France and Spain had already reached that figure.
