Match No. 1005 - Sunday, 11th October 2020, 5:00pm

  • Assist: Jordan Henderson. "England fashioned their lifeline out of nothing after Meunier put his hand on Henderson’s shoulder as they jostled at a corner. The stand-in England captain went down, his screams audible inside the empty stadium, and the German referee, Tobias Stieler, felt that it added up to a modern penalty...Rashford’s penalty was perfect." Marcus Rashford11th of 11 goals, 39' (38:26) (pen)
  • Assist: Kieran Trippier. "Mount’s goal came after Kieran Trippier had headed back a deep Trent Alexander-Arnold cross and it contained a slice of luck, his shot deflecting off Toby Alderweireld and looping into the far, top corner." Mason Mount2nd of 2 goals, 64' (63:51)

Notes

  • Covid-19Played behind closed doors during the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Goal DisallowedCarrasco has the ball in the net after 10 minutes for Belgium but it is ruled out after Castagne strays offside and impedes Pickford's view.
  • Penalty: Romelu Lukaku"The opening goal exposed a mismatch in terms of pace between Eric Dier and Lukaku as they chased a ball up the inside right. The Belgium centre-forward gave his man a head start but he hoovered up the ground and he was in control of the situation by the time he entered the area. Dier was unnerved and he seemed to panic, sliding into a challenge that was risky to say the least. He got none of the ball and went into Lukaku’s legs. It was a mess. Lukaku converted from the spot."
  • World's BestEngland beat the FIFA number 1 ranked side for the second time. First - v Spain 12th Nov 2011.
  • Penalty: Marcus Rashford2nd scored from 2 taken (100.0%). England's 127th overall. "The stand-in England captain [Henderson] went down, his screams audible inside the empty stadium, and the German referee, Tobias Stieler, felt that it added up to a modern penalty...Rashford’s penalty was perfect."
