England are unbeaten so far in the competition having began the tournament with a thumping 6-2 win against Iran, before the goalless stalemate with the USA.
Southgate was criticised following the game against the United States, with calls for Phil Foden to be in the team from the start to help England as an attacking force.
Foden did play against Wales and netted England’s second goal, while Rashford’s brace means he’s currently the joint top-scorer at the tournament alongside Kylian Mbappe, Enner Valencia and Cody Gakpo.
