Rashford matches feat achieved by just four Man United players after England see off Belgium

England pick up big win

England returned to competitive action on Sunday evening.

After putting Wales to the sword by three goals to nil earlier in the week, the Three Lions were probably full of confidence heading into this tie.

However, Belgium are currently the world’s no.1 ranked team and a much tougher test than England are used to facing on a regular basis.

This showed in the first 45, which Belgium completely dominated and probably should have score three or four in.

However, a 39th-minute penalty from Marcus Rashford ensured England went in at the break level.

Gareth Southgate and co. then came out for the second 45 much improved and, thanks to a huge deflection, were actually able to take the lead midway through the second half.

England held out for the victory and now sit atop of their Nations League group.

Said player comes in the former of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

As mentioned above, Rashford score the equaliser for England and in doing so, matched a record previously held by just four Man United stars.
