England came out victorious in their final group game of the World Cup in Qatar and the Man Utd striker found the net twice in their 3-0 win over Wales.
After netting his first of the evening, Rashford could be seen kneeling down and pointing to the sky.
After the game, the 25-year-old explained the reason behind this gesture. He said “Unfortunately I lost one of my friends a couple of days ago. “He’s had quite a long battle with cancer, so I’m pleased I managed to score for him. He’s always been a big supporter of mine. He was just a great person and I’m pleased he came into my life, really.”
Together with Kylian Mbappe of France, Cody Gakpo of Netherlands and Enner Valencia of Ecuador, Marcus Rashford is the leading scorer of the 2022 World Cup. They have so far scored three goals.
