Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer, has tipped Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden to start against Senegal when both teams clash in the 2022 FIFA World Cup this weekend.
England will clash with Senegal in the World Cup Round of 16 on Sunday.
However, Shearer wants England manager Gareth Southgate to start Rashford and Foden in the Three Lions’ first knockout fixture against Senegal, insisting that the duo have done enough in the previous match against Wales.
In his column for BBC, Shearer wrote: “It’s fantastic for [Gareth] Southgate that he has so many options in our frontline, and choosing who should play is a nice problem to have.
“There are still arguments for Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka to play [against Senegal], and Jack Grealish too, but I would expect Foden and Rashford to start against Senegal on Sunday too.
“They definitely did enough. Both Rashford’s goals were fantastic and I am so pleased Foden got on the scoresheet, too [against Wales]. Lots of people, including myself, were shouting for him to play and he justified that with his performance.”
