Bukayo Saka, who started in England’s first two group games, returned to the playing 11, with Phil Foden retaining his place.

Raheem Sterling too misses out after he was ruled out of contention for selection for the game because he is dealing with a family matter.

Rashford, though, came on in the 65th minute of the game, replacing Saka out on the pitch, with the score at 3-0.
