England is on the board in Qatar.
The first match of Day 2 of the 2022 World Cup is off to being a complete rout. England has already scored three first-half goals in their Group B clash.
It all started with Jude Bellingham, the youngest player on England’s World Cup roster at 19 years old, who turned in Luke Shaw’s cross for his first-ever goal for England.
It was then followed up in the 43rd minute with a goal by Bukaya Sake (21) who is also making a World Cup debut.
