Marcus Rashford is 'top three in the world,' according to Phil Foden.

Marcus Rashford of Manchester United scored twice, while Phil Foden, who is a star for Manchester City, scored the other goal as England defeated Wales in the World Cup.

 

Marcus Rashford is one of the top three players in the world for the way he strikes the ball, according to Phil Foden, who praised his England teammate after the pair led the Three Lions to a memorable victory over Wales. Foden and Rashford led England to victory over Wales.

Gareth Southgate recalled Manchester United players Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford for England's final World Cup group game, which was played against England's neighbors Wales. The Mancunian duo combined to help England advance to the round of 16, while simultaneously eliminating Wales from contention.

After a quiet first half, Foden won a free kick that was expertly put away by Rashford, before the Manchester City man scored himself less than two minutes later to seal the game - before Manchester United's Rashford added a third goal following a nice assist from City midfielder Kalvin Phillips. During the second half, Rashford added a goal following a nice assist from City midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

But it was Rashford's free kick that was won by Foden's driving run that delighted both Gareth Southgate, the manager, and Foden, the player. The goal was scored by Rashford.

The City forward was overjoyed after the game and was effusive in his praise for Rashford, praising him as one of the best players in the world at taking set pieces.

Foden admitted in an interview with ITV Sport that he "didn't really show my attacking threat in the first half." In the second half, Gareth was able to switch Marcus and me around, and as soon as I got the ball, I thought I was going to just drive with it. But he had Marcus switch places with me. Thankfully, I was successful in winning the free kick, and Marcus took care of the rest.

Given the way he hits the ball, it is safe to say that this individual is among the top three in the world. If he keeps on putting the ball in the back of the net, he's going to rack up quite a few goals.

Rashford is now tied for first place with Cody Gakpo, Kylian Mbappe, and Enner Valencia for the most goals scored at the World Cup to this point, and Foden predicted that the United striker will score more goals in the remaining matches.

"Great talent, he's unbelievable isn't he," Foden said. "Even at this early stage, it's clear how important he's going to be in the subsequent stages. We will unquestionably be dependent on him.

Another thing that Southgate had to say about Rashford was, "It's great for him. Since he's been back with us, he's been doing an outstanding job of training and has been very impressive overall. He had a chance to score three goals in a row. This incredible strike from the free kick exemplifies what he is capable of doing on the field.
