England hit back to beat Slovakia with Rashford winner

Agencies, London

England closed in on qualification for next year’s World Cup finals as Marcus Rashford’s first competitive international goal earned them a 2-1 win over closest Group F rivals Slovakia at Wembley on Monday.

Slovakia, who began the night only two points adrift of Gareth Southgate’s England, stunned their hosts in the third minute when Stanislav Lobotka punished some slack defending to prod the opener past keeper Joe Hart. England were wobbling but midfielder Eric Dier calmed the home jitters with a well-taken 37th minute equaliser.
