England go through after beating Wales 3-0 at the World Cup

Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden both scored on Tuesday to put England in the last 16 of the World Cup with a 3-0 win over Wales.

England coach Gareth Southgate opted to add both players to the starting line-up for the team’s final Group B match and they responded with all three goals – two from Rashford and the other from Foden.

England then plays in the eighth finals against Senegal. Wales finished last in the group and are eliminated.

Southgate faced calls to refresh his team following the 0-0 draw with the United States. He brought Rashford and Foden into another attack and it worked.

England had finished the game just after the break with Rashford scoring from a free kick in the 50th and Foden another in the 51st. Rashford got his second after a weaving run into the penalty area in the 68th.

Wales captain Gareth Bale was injured at half-time.
