Bukayo Saka was voted Man of the Match as England battered Iran 6-2 in their Qatar 2022 World Cup group opener on Monday.
Saka marked his World Cup debut with a brace to help England get off to a perfect start.
The Arsenal star got England’s third and fourth goals and was impressive throughout the encounter.
Saka also became the youngest player to score two goals or more in a World Cup debut since Franz Beckenbauer in 1966.
Borussia Dortmund youngster Jude Bellingham opened the scoring for England with a glancing header off a superb cross from Luke Shaw.
Raheem Sterling doubled England’s lead as he slotted home Harry Kane’s cross, while substitutes Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish were also on the score sheet.
