Rashford was played in by Harry Kane, took a touch to control the ball, another to cut inside and a third to roll the ball past the goalkeeper.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire and left-back Luke Shaw both started the game for England.

The other goalscorers for England were Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka (2 goals), Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish.
