“Being Better Than Mbappe” - Fans Thrilled With Performance of 25-Year-Old England Star In 3-0 Win

Fans lauded Marcus Rashford for his spectacular performance in England's 3-0 win against Wales at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar on Tuesday (November 29).

Rashford netted twice for the Three Lions, opening the scoring from a free-kick in the 50th minute. It was the Manchester United forward's fifth career free-kick goal, producing a stunning striker to catch Wales custodian Danny Ward off guard at his far post. The 25-year-old was on the scoresheet again in the 68th minute to score his team's third.

Manager Gareth Southgate took Rashford off during the dying stages of the game, and the player received a standing ovation from fans. Rashford is now the Three Lions' joint fifth-highest goalscorer in the FIFA World Cup. He's also leading the race for the Golden boot along with Cody Gakpo, Enner Valencia and Kylian Mbappe.

Here are some of reactions from fans on Twitter after Rashford's spectacular display in England's win:

With seven points from three games, The Three Lions topped Group B, ahead of USA (5), Iran (3) and Wales (1).
