However, they gave in after the break, and Gareth Southgate's team, which will now face Senegal in the next round, increased their group total to nine goals.

England scored three goals and finished first in Group B. Job done! #FIFAWorldCup | #Qatar2022 — FIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) 1669755307000 Wales had a chance to advance to the last 16 if Iran and the United States played to a level score. However, after Rashford and Foden scored goals, that possibility quickly vanished.

As their first World Cup in 64 years fizzled out, Wales, whose talisman Gareth Bale was substituted at halftime after making no impression, appeared devastated.

Rashford of Manchester United, whose status in the team was questionable a few months ago due to his poor form and injuries, has now scored three goals in the tournament.

After their initial 6-2 victory over Iran, England was brought back to earth by their 0-0 draw with the United States.

However, they will be confident going into their last-16 matchup with Senegal, who finished second in Group A.

For Wales' fans, their three World Cup matches provided little reason to cheer, and they finished bottom with just one point, making their return to the tournament all too brief.
