England beats Belgium 2-1 in UEFA Nations League played at Wembley

Marcus Rashford scored his 11th goal for England with a first-half penalty

Belgium took a lead their early superiority deserved when Romelu Lukaku sent England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford the wrong way after the striker had been brought down by Eric Dier’s poor challenge.

England were on the back foot for most of the first half but were handed a lifeline back into the game six minutes before half-time when captain Jordan Henderson went down very easily in a tussle with Thomas Meunier, Marcus Rashford scoring from the spot.

Gareth Southgate’s side enjoyed much more possession and territory after the break but needed a large slice of good fortune to take the lead after 64 minutes, Mason Mount’s effort taking a decisive deflection off Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and looping over helpless keeper Simon Mignolet, inflicting Belgium’s first loss since November 2018.
