England secured their place in the last 16 of the World Cup on Tuesday, courtesy of a 3-0 win over rivals Wales. 

A brace from Marcus Rashford either side of a Phil Foden strike gave The Three Lions victory, and ended Wales’ first World Cup finals appearance in more than 60 years.

England will now face Senegal on Sunday evening, with a place in the quarter-finals at stake.

Manager Gareth Southgate will have several tricky decisions to make ahead of that match, with both Rashford and Foden having impressed during their first starts of the tournament.

No player has scored more goals at the tournament than Manchester United’s Rashford, who has three in three games so far.

Now, the forward is set to be offered a new contract by his club side, according to reports.

As reported by Fabrizio Romano, The Red Devils are preparing a new contract offer for Rashford, whose current deal is set to expire next summer.

United do have the opportunity to extend his contract by a further 12 months, but Romano claims that the Premier League side will instead opt to offer Rashford an improved deal.

Rashford is set to be offered a new contract with United

The 25-year-old has an impressive record for England, having scored 15 goals in 49 matches since making his debut in 2016.

For United, the forward has been inconsistent over the past few seasons, although he had started the current campaign in fine form.

Prior to the Premier League being paused to make way for the World Cup, Rashford had scored four goals and provided two assists in the league for United.

United’s attacking options have been depleted by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo last week, and they therefore appear keen to ensure that Rashford stays put.

Rashford made his debut for United in 2016, scoring twice against FC Midtjylland, and also netted a brace on his Premier League debut against Arsenal days later.

In total, he has scored 101 goals in 322 appearances for United, as well as providing 61 assists in all competitions.
