Marcus Rashford explains touching and emotional World Cup goal celebration

Marcus Rashford, Manchester United forward, has spoken out about his celebration


following scoring in England's victory over Wales at the FIFA World Cup yesterday (November 29, 2017). At the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Qatar

the Three Lions beat the Dragons 3-0. Rashford was the winner of two goals, and Phil Foden scored another. England also qualified for the knockouts with Group B.

England scored in the 50th minutes when Manchester United's Manchester United striker opened the scoring with a spectacular free-kick.

Rashford celebrated his victory by kneeling down and looking up at the sky. Rashford responded to questions about his celebration saying

I was sad to lose one of my closest friends just a few days ago. He's been through a very long battle with cancer so I'm happy to have scored for him.

He has always been a strong supporter of mine. He was a wonderful person and I'm glad he came into my life. Foden scored the second of the night with a Harry Kane goal.

Rashford scored another goal with his left foot, which Wales goalkeeper Danny Ward should not have saved.
