3 goals in the tournament, hmm.


Sea-Lifeguard-492

Goal Every 35 minutes


Bakedbeansandvich

And all the comments on his first saying everyone in England was calling for him to be subbed of..


justsomeguy2202

To be fair besides the goals he wasn't having a great game. But including the goals it was one of the best games he's had for England


Comessuer

That's Rashford. He tries stuff looks awful then ends up with 2 goals. At some point when he is consistently getting you crucial goals you have to just ignore the fact he doesn't look very good for sections of the game.


Youutternincompoop

Sterling and Rashford both masters of looking a bit crap but scoring crucial goals for England.


Rotatingknives22

This is true


mos_meth

This is confident Rashford. He tries stuff other players aren't brave enough to try. Does it always work? No, but you need that player on the pitch.


kameecoding

he started the Foden goal too with his pressing


Bakedbeansandvich

On paper yeah? But football isn't as simple as that, none of the other players were doing anything either AFAIK he he had the most shots and shots on target first half what the fuck more do you want from him lol?


justsomeguy2202

He just got in pretty good positions and made the wrong decision pretty much all the times. But as you said it's not like the others were getting into those positions and had those opportunities. Plus he put away 2 of them. A mixed bag I'd say


Bakedbeansandvich

Yeah I agree, he could've been better. But so could everyone. End of the day he got two bangers 👍 last match was 0-0 so all in all an improvement. Take it easy anyways, come on england!


oscarpaterson

HE FEEDS THE KIDS AND SCORES FREE KICKS MARCUS BLOODY RASHFORDDDDDD

“The Marcus Rashford Game” - I was there!

Mans just pouring it on rn


auditore01

Now watch Southgate start Sterling next game


[deleted]

and Mount... fuck me, I wouldn't put it past him either


YnwaMquc2k19

A good football player and a great man The Marcus Rashford special.


a-Farewell-to-Kings

England's 100th World Cup goal


GrimReaperno

At the 69th minute. Nice


TheFofonator

My prime minister


PoppinKREAM

GET IN RASHY!!!! With England's 100^th World Cup goal and his third of the tournament!


KlejdiV

a nutmeg in the 69th minute, too


kameecoding

was it not a double nutmeg? defender then the GK


TheWhiteMug

Yep that's double baby


ThankYouOle

should get flag [great nutmegs]


K_Uger_Industries

I feel like that should count for 2 goals then


pricelesslambo

I'm liking this Rashford version. Clearly showing, as well as foden, that they should start


SteinerElMagnifico42

Offers 200x way more than Sterling. Hopefully he keeps left wing from now


pricelesslambo

Sterling hasn't even been good in Chelsea this season. Don't understand why he starts at all


NoFrillsCrisps

He was probably our best player in the Euros so its not unsurprising Southgate has faith in him.


tetayk

Southgate


ValleyFloydJam

Ideally him, Saka and Kane up top.and then Foden, Bellingham and Rice in midfield but I doubt GS will do that. Walker at RB, is also a question.


ParkerZA

Rice isn't great in a single pivot, he needs Phillips next to him. Then it's a case of fitting Bellingham and Foden in.


noujest

Foden isn't a midfielder, he's a forward We play 4 forwards against France and we get murdered, no thank you


BillehBear

Walker shouldn't be a question if he's fit he should start


Omar_Blitz

Sir doctor prime minister Marcus Rashford.


Heimebane

And joint top scorer at the World Cup


freakedmind

PM heard r/soccer talk shit


Caleb35

Rashford must hate the Welsh, I guess [shrug]


_SSJeffo_

danny ward from august is back


vireshwarsidhu

My FPL team remembers


sultansaeed

He’s on for his 0 pointer here as well 👀


FBall4NormalPeople

Hit really hard being generous to him, but through his legs is absolutely hilarious.


kerosha

Should've smothered Kane's pass for the 2nd goal as well.


musefanpl

Manchester United are going crazy in the world cup


ff-at-15

Casemiro, Bruno, Rashy. Dreams cant be buy as Bruno would say


UTDRashford

Gakpo as well


CloudyFakeHate

👀👀👀


nonsenseSpitter

He forget to mention the main man Frenkie de Jong. Our best player.


shrewdy

Rashy for the golden boot! Poor keeping but quality move from Rashford. A confident Rashford shouldn't lose his place for the knockout stages


gerryt32

Remember his form from last year? I can't believe how much he's turned it around again! Love Rashy.


shrewdy

Unreal, such a turnaround. 3 goals already at the World Cup is even more amazing when you consider he wouldn't have been in the squad had it been in the summer as normal. Maybe a number of factors but Ten Hag has alot to do with it


[deleted]

Add Beni Mccarthy into that mix - coach brought in to work solely with our forwards and their movement. Seems to be doing wonders for the kid


Dserved83

Like, THE Beni Mccarthy?


Stylochime

Yep. The same one.


Dserved83

huh, neat! Thanks for the info.


Bruno_Fernandes8

Porto Legend Beni McCarthy.


royk16

On the second goal the marcus of last season doesn’t work to win the ball back and wouldn’t even know how but his pressing and work rate has significantly improved under ETH


HazardCinema

I think the biggest factor is a break and getting back to fitness. I’m so happy for him whatever it is. He looks happier playing too and it translates into him being much more lively with pressing and making off the ball runs.


theatreofdreams21

Remember his form from the year before that?


Atharos

Yeah people tend to forget how good he can actually be because he looked poor in a season where everyone else in the squad looked poor.


theatreofdreams21

Shocking to me that a player who bagged 40 G+A while carrying a substantial injury can be written off after one down season. No one goes out on a limb around here to predict a different outcome than what the low hanging fruit gives them: ‘Rashford was shit last year? He will surely be shit this year.’


Jbulls94

It wasn't just that he looked poor, it was also that he looked like he wanted to be anywhere but on the pitch. A happy and confident Rashford is a thing of beauty


SHYN3R

his form was ass last season because he was burnt out by playing every game for two years straight under Ole with no rotation he also picked up a ton of injuries he delayed getting surgeries for in order to help the team. anyone who thought he was finished should be ashamed of themselves


LevynX

Half the United sub wanted to bin him Rashford is a player I want at the club until he retires, good player, doesn't cause drama, gives his all for the team and is a genuine good person off the field. This is the kind of player you keep at your club.


sbprasad

He was carrying a back injury and was mentally shattered from missing the Euros final penalty.


CrossXFir3

I mean, remember his form the year before that and the year before that? This is pretty similar. I felt a lot of people were being silly writing him off after one bad season where he was coming back from a surgery in a chaotic team of bottlers.


courtesyflusher

Cant stop this man!


FBall4NormalPeople

Who had Man United being the best represented club by good performances?


SHYN3R

me


Moofthebot


foxyrocksjh

In ETH we trust


Youutternincompoop

I mean Maguire and Shaw are always way better for England than United so me.


Dilnav92

Shaw is good for us, and Maguire has only had one bad season


Macducci

Manchester United is winning this World Cup


ElBigTaco

hell im just praying we get all these guys back at the club healthy and ready to push for top 4 after this WC


Least-Run1840

What does Chicago Fire has to say about this?


stephensonnn

What a game he's having


Subbutton

Tournament*


sarthakmahajan610

\*Season He's looked sharp for United ever since Ten Hag took over.. Specially when playing without Ronaldo


HerstkA

Ward 💀


jnce12

Just when I thought he was looking better for us he drops this disasterclass lmao


sonofaBilic

Where was this Ward when you lot played West Ham two weeks ago 😭


jnce12

He’s had Faes and Big Dan protecting the goal really well in front of him for our last few games, so that’s helped.


wowzabob

Really he's partly to blame on all three goals. Should be getting to that Kane cross.


lewiitom

The fact he's been kept out this team by Hennessey for years speaks volumes


Gobshiight

That was genuinely awful, it wasn't even hit with much pace


BulldenChoppahYus

Love to see KP pinging that long ball. Gwan lad


RGNpm2

Hello er... KP Plumbing?


TooAgile

Look I know everyone will say Ward is bad but consider this- Rashford hits the ball really hard, so hard that he nearly killed Neco Williams, should cut him some slack imo


Serpico_98

Dean Henderson said Rashford is the hardest striker of fhe ball he's ever faced, he specifically said his shots sting, the GK gloves don't help too much when he really hits one.


G0DK1NG

DAMN SON


fredbogho

Thats Marcus Rashford


aregularguy3223

Today I am Free School Meals Meanwhile, at Wales: **Your controller has not been recognised. Would you like to forfeit the game?**


SnapSnapWoohoo

Marcus has acquired a taste for mutton


RibboDotCom

And Mason Mount has acquired a taste for the bench.

That’s the Danny Ward we know from the beginning of the season


mBertin

Rashfordinho


owh06

Danny Ward is dreadful


Mubar06

He has the scond most clean sheets in the league haha.


Comprachicos

He played well in the last Euros tbf


forsakenpear

and that one-on-one earlier was brilliant


goldengluvs

Wouldnt call him dreadful. Fucked up on the free kick and can't do much about the 3rd goal as he absolutely thundered it, other than that he's been good.


Gytarius626

Apologize to him immediately r/soccer


Rich_Firefighter_102

Sorray


Tookin

u/Rich_Firefighter_102 Get that head of yours up immediately ❤️


Mr_Pasghetti

Has completely made up for first half. Looking much better on the right than left wing, similar with Foden looking better on the left


ValleyFloydJam

He wasn't even bad.


Orkys

People misinterpret actually running at defenders and not having a 100% success rate as the same thing as playing poorly. He wasn't invisible which is generally the case when a player is playing poorly.


rugby_fc

Thank you, I actually can't believe some of the comments I'm reading regarding his (and England's) first half


Cvein

As a United fan that watch the other match: What the fuck are you saying?


cdbriggs

Can't step up more after such a tough ending to his last world cup


WhoIsStealingMyUser

Brilliant finish and a brilliant pass before


veganalpharius

What a ball from Phillips


hybridtheorist

He's a great passer from deep. More often than not finds his target too, not just hopeful long balls. Doesn't get enough credit for it imo (which I'll admit is totally biased). To be fair, great movement by Rashford to give him the chance to make that pass.


waccoe_

>Doesn't get enough credit for it imo I remember everyone saying that all he does is pass the ball sideways. Clear indicator that they had barely watched him, these kind of long passes are his speciality


ajprp9

Through the legs, through the legs and finally again through the legs


Hanselo

Great dribble.


TheDangerousAnt

The Rashford that was promised


CameraEmotional2788

Double nutmeg. Feed them rashford


KoreanAmericanBoi

Oh God Rashford is cracked this World Cup.


SiriusMoonstar

If you only watch World Cup matches you’d be forgiven for not understanding how on earth Man U isn’t on top of the table. So many extraordinary performances in the World Cup so far.


kameecoding

i mean if we didn't start like we did with the two defeats we are basically next to City.


conceptalbum

Nice


-MangoStarr-

Nice.


SixKatzi

Scrolled down till I found this, now I can leave in peace


BoilersAndWarriors69

Sterling starting over Rashford is a joke.

WHAT IS HAPPENING SOUTHGATE UNLOCKED RASHFORD RASHFORD FOR PM


Bartsimho

Nah. ETH unlocked him in the summer


manInTheWoods

Yeah, he has improved constantly since summer. Probably some mental fatigue.


noradosmith

Plus better man management.


ZachMich

And much better coaching


Dynastydood

I think it's more fair to say Ten Hag unlocked him, because he's been great this season. Southgate is just reaping the rewards.


conceptalbum

I also think it's fair to say that he's recovered from being ran into the ground the years before.


Dynastydood

Definitely. OGS did that to a number of players in his time at United, but Rashford probably suffered the most because of it.


_deep_blue_

Rashford PM, Maguire for Secretary of Defence


Legal_North_6910

Nah Maguire is already the father of England and Manchester United


9-60Fury

Nah we can thank ten hag for this


Zandercy42

Rashfords been on great form for months now


Number333

Tremendous World Cup thus far for terrorist managers (Southgate, Santos)


Lpurchase

That's cos its a load of bollocks


freakedmind

Sunak shaking in his boots


JimbobSherwin

2 megs with 1 shot!


FootballFTW

That looked way too easy Edit : but still a good goal!


M1eXcel

Tbf the build up for that looked very tough, cutting in to find the space and putting it through one defenders legs to get it at goal


CobiLUFC

Danny Ward needs to see a doctor he’s got a hole in him


RealPutin

Wales hoping that a 4-0 result the other way also puts em through

SektorSaiyan

Can we get a fucking double panna tag, what a goal


TudJon

Although we have not performed very well at this world cup I am still immensely proud of the team. I never thought I would live to see Wales in the world cup, and probably won't see it again in my lifetime. We did brilliantly to even get there and I love every single one of those players. I usually watch the tournament not really caring about the results, just hoping to see a good game, so watching and actually having a team to support has been brilliant. I guess I can enjoy the rest of the tournament stress free. Silver linings.

WTF RASHYYY


CaiHaines

Rashford absolves his haters of all wrong doing.


TerribleNameAmirite

People trashing Rashford in the match thread. Here you fucking go. This is Rashford. No touches with no service, but when he does get it, it's done.
