Gareth Southgate’s side qualified for the last-16 as Group B winners after a confident 3-0 victory over Rob Page’s men.

England beat Wales 3-0 on Tuesday night to move into the last-16 of the Qatar World Cup
Although the two sides went in at half-time with the score goal-less, Marcus Rashford scored shortly after the interval, with Phil Foden adding another a minute later.
Rashford then completed the scoring shortly after the hour mark, with defeat sending Wales out of the competition and potentially signalling the last major tournament for veterans like Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen.
The Three Lions, meanwhile, will face African side Senegal in the round of 16 knockout stage on Sunday evening.
