Footage shows lone England fan in Cardiff went mental celebrating goal vs Wales, it was very brave

Footage of a lone England fan in Cardiff celebrating against Wales has gone viral on social media.

England beat Wales 3-0 at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium courtesy of a brace from Marcus Rashford either side of a goal from Phil Foden on his first World Cup start.

Gareth Southgate's side had been frustrated by their noisy neighbours in the first half before Rashford broke the deadlock in sensational fashion five minutes into the second.

The Manchester United star whipped in a delicious free-kick that sailed past Danny Ward and sparked incredible scenes amongst the England contingent in Doha.

After the game, the BBC showed various clips of how fans in different places reacted to the worldie effort.

One was in Cardiff, the Welsh capital, where hundreds of supporters piled into a fan park to watch the action on a big screen.

They were obviously predominantly Welsh, but there was a single England supporter in the mix. The woman, sat right in the front, did blend in a little by wearing red - albeit with 'England' on the front.

However when England scored, her celebration was far from muted. She proceeded to jump up and down with her hands aloft before banging on the barrier that was in front of her.

"Can someone check she gets home alright," one fan wrote.

Another said: "Anyone know this girl? Brave, brave girl. Hope she made it out alive."

A third commented: "What a hero that lass is."

Rashford's stunning strike was England's 100th in the World Cup and that number quickly moved to 101 when Foden tapped home from Harry Kane's cross a minute later.

He capped off a fine performance with a second, chopping into his left and supplying a powerful finish past Ward to become the tournament's joint-top scorer so far.

The Three Lions finished Group B in style and after topping the group, will now take on Senegal in the round of last 16 on Sunday at the Al Bayt Stadium.
