England Fans Celebrated What Marcus Rashford Did In The 66th Minute

England Fans Celebrated What Marcus Rashford Did In The 66th Minute

England lost to Belgium on Thursday night. The first defeat of their World Cup campaign. But losing to Belgium hands Gareth Southgate's lads the perceived easier route to the final.

Robert Martinez and Southgate made wholesale changes. Drafting in players for their first games, while resting key men like Eden Hazard and Harry Kane, to name but a few.

Adnan Januzaj, who was making his first start for Belgium in this tournament, netted the only goal of the game in superb fashion.

Minutes after, in the 66th (!!) minute to be precise, Rashford had the chance to go level.

He was one-on-one with Thibaut Courtois but he fluffed his lines, failing to hit the back of the net.

Though England fans celebrated him not scoring as it handed the 1966 World Cup winners a more favourably run in.

All three points eventually went to Belgium who now face Japan, before potentially facing Brazil in the quarter-finals not to mention playing either Uruguay, Portugal, Argentina or France in the semi-finals.

Tough run in.

Even though England lost, they have a easier route to the final by playing Colombia then Sweden or Switzerland in the quarters, then possibly Spain or Croatia in the semi-finals.
