Jamie Carragher hails England's 'two most gifted players' for roles in World Cup game vs Senegal

Two players shone especially brightly as England booked their place in the quarter-finals of the World Cup after a spectacular display against Senegal which ended 3-0

Jamie Carragher has named Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden as England’s most gifted stars at the World Cup.

England cruised to a 3-0 victory over Senegal in the last-16 on Sunday. Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka were all on target with their strikes as the goal-scorers on the night.

But it was plain to see that Bellingham and Foden played the biggest parts in the Three Lions’ victory, having notched three assists between them.

Fans were quick to give the duo their flowers on social media as Gareth Southgate’s side progressed to the quarter-finals. But pundit Carragher went one step further to name them as a cut above the rest of the England players.

He tweeted: “Brilliant 2nd goal from England, great combination between the two most gifted players in the squad, Bellingham & Foden!”

It was Bellingham’s pass that teed up Henderson to break the deadlock after a lacklustre first 38 minutes. His lung-busting runs were a feature of the game and were seen again for the second goal.

The Borussia Dortmund captain picked the ball up inside his own half before charging through the Senegalese lines and finding Foden, who exquisitely played in Kane.

Manchester City star Foden’s marvellous trickery and execution were on display once more as he crossed in a ball for Saka to tap-in after half-time.
