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 no doubt full of confidence heading into their latest clash.

Their opponents, however, in the form of Belgium, are currently the world’s no.1 ranked team, and of course pose a much sterner test than England are used to facing on a regular basis.

This showed in the first 45, which Belgium completely dominated. The Red Devils, in truth, probably should have headed in at the break 3 or 4 goals to the good.

However, a 39th-minute penalty from Marcus Rashford ensured that England remained on level terms at the half.

And Gareth Southgate’s men returned for the second 45 looking much improved, eventually resulting in them taking the lead through Mason Mount’s heavily deflected effort.

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

Highlights: England 2-Belgium 1

Marcus Rashford matches Man United greats

Whilst the spotlight understandably centered on England’s overall display, one player also managed an impressive individual feat during the Belgium clash.

The player in question 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 United stars.

Rashford’s strike was his 4th in his last four competitive appearances for England.

The only Red Devils stars to have managed as much in the past are Bobby Charlton, David Beckham and Wayne Rooney – putting Rashford in illustrious company.
