Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has admitted that he’s really happy after England booked their place in the Qatar World Cup knockout stage.

Marcus Rashford feels ‘really happy’ after England booked their place in the Qatar World Cup round of 16 after a convincing win over Wales.

The Three Lions needed to avoid a defeat to Wales to advance to the next round of the World Cup but they went ahead and won 3-0 over Wales.

Marcus Rashford played a huge role in England’s run to the round of 16 after he came on in the second half and scored a goal to help the Three Lions beat Iran 6-2. He was also involved as England were held to a frustrating goalless draw by the USA.

The Manchester United forward started on the left-wing and scored twice including a free-kick to take his country through to the next round as the winners of Group B.

England will face the runners-up of Group A, Senegal, in the round of 16 on December 4 and the United academy graduate has admitted that games as this are what he really loves playing.

Speaking to BBC after the game, the 25-year-old said: “Moments like this – this is what I play football for. The biggest moments, the best moments, and I’m really happy. I’m happy that we’re going through to the next round of the tournament.”
