Following Rio Ferdinand’s off-air reaction to his goal in England’s spectacular 6-2 victory over Iran on Monday, Marcus Rashford has given a humorous response.

While serving as a pundit for BBC Sport during the game, Ferdinand tweeted a picture of himself celebrating Rashford’s goal. The striker has since responded to Ferdinand’s joyous celebration with a laughing emoji.
The 25-year-71st-minute old’s goal perfectly summed up his recent resurgence in play. Rashford struggled to secure a spot in the first squad after missing a penalty in the Euro 2020 final and missing the start of the 2021/22 Premier League season due to shoulder surgery.
But since being reinstated by new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag at the beginning of the current campaign, the Old Trafford academy graduate has flourished.
Despite losing favor with England, Rashford was selected by Southgate for Qatar after scoring eight goals in 19 games this season.
After the game, the Three Lions player responded to his goal on Instagram. He wrote: “My satisfaction about scoring at the World Cup is beyond words. The team played well; I’ll see you guys on Friday [for the upcoming match against the USA].”
Southgate had received jeers from England supporters when his team was humiliated by Hungary in the Nations League in the summer, but he was happy to see his team end a six-match losing streak convincingly.
After 10 minutes of extra time, Southgate said, “I’m really getting tired of the finish of the game.” “I have to be extremely satisfied to have won by such a large margin and to have played the way we did for the duration of the game. The players appeared to have prepared themselves in this manner.
In England’s 6-2 victory over Iran, Marcus Rashford scored barely minutes after coming off the bench.
“We thought we aspired to be that kind of group. They played the game really well; it was a sticky first half with many stops, but we were a real threat the entire time thanks to our excellent pressing and movement.
“I should be extremely thrilled with that, but we shouldn’t have given up two goals at that point in the game, and we’ll need to be alert against the States [USA],” the player said. Although it’s a terrific beginning, we must improve.
“I believe that was just a result of the result [the sloppy finish to the game],” the player said. Over the course of the game, there were 24 minutes added. so it takes a while to concentrate. We simply lost focus, and our performance suffers when we play more slowly.
