Wales 0

England 3

[Rashford 50, 68, Foden 51]

Marcus Rashford scored twice as England reached the knockout stage after defeating Wales to top Group B at the World Cup in Qatar.

England, who face Senegal in the last 16 on Sunday, took the lead through Rashford’s free kick before Phil Foden got on the end of Harry Kane’s cross from the right.

Wales, whose manager Rob Page substituted captain Gareth Bale at half-time, conceded again when Rashford added his second with a shot through the legs of goalkeeper Danny Ward.

Iran 0

United States 1

[Pulisic 38]

Christin Pulisic netted the winner against Iran to send the United States into the knockout stage.

The US, who finished second in Group B, will face the Netherlands in the last 16.

Group B

1. England 7pts; 2. United States 5pts; 3. Iran 3pts; 4. Wales 1pt

Netherlands 2

[Gakpo 26, de Jong 49]

Qatar 0

Netherlands finished top of Group A after condemning host nation Qatar to a third successive defeat at the World Cup.

Cody Gakpo, the PSV Eindhoven winger, scored midway through the first half, his third goal of the tournament, with a fine finish into the bottom corner.

Frenkie de Jong doubled their advantage after the break after Memphis Depay’s effort has been saved.

Qatar have become the first host nation to exit the tournament with three straight losses.

Ecuador 1

[Caicedo 67]

Senegal 2

[Sarr 44 pen, Koulibaly 70]

Senegal reached the knockout stage of the World Cup thanks to a composed volley from Kalidou Koulibaly as they eliminated Ecuador to finish second in Group A.

Watford winger Ismaila Sarr opened the scoring for Senegal from the penalty spot just before the break; however, Moises Caicedo, the Brighton midfielder, equalised for the South Americans, who needed just a point to advance to the last 16, in the second half.

Koulibaly, the Chelsea defender, scored the winner three minutes later with a calm volley for the African champions, who knew they had to win to advance to the next stage, with a Qatar victory over the Netherlands unlikely.

Group A

1. Netherland 7pts; 2. Senegal 6pts; 3. Ecuador 4pts; 4. Qatar 0pts
