Similar to the first goal, Jude Bellingham was central to England’s attacking move. Phil Foden provided an assist for Harry Kane, who scored his first goal in the tournament with a precise shot from inside the box.

Foden then completed his brilliant performance by providing another assist in the 57th minute.

He made a quick run down the left flank before sending a precise low cross for Bukayo Saka. The Arsenal star then nodded the ball home from close range to make it 3-0 for England.
