England are cruising to victory against Wales after Marcus Rashford scored two goals in quick succession to put the Three Lions 3-0 up in the crunch final group stage fixture in the World Cup.

Gareth Southgate's team broke the goalless deadlock in style just five minutes after the restart form halftime, after Phil Foden was fouled by Joe Rodon and Marcus Rashford scored the resulting free-kick.

The lead was doubled just moments later, as Foden tucked away Harry Kane’s cross after Rashford had won the ball off Ben Davies on the edge of the Wales box.

Rashford then scored again just before 70 minutes. The Manchester United forward collected a pass from substitute Kalvin Phillips, firing a shot through the legs of Danny Ward, Wales' goalkeeper.He came close to his hat-trick soon after but this time Ward was equal to his low effort.

Rashford received a warm embrace from England manager Gareth Southgate as he departed to be replaced by Jack Grealish.
