A ⏱️ 20' The 20-year-old whips in a free-kick to the near post where Declan Rice is on hand to flick a header into the far corner.

⏱️ 80' Clever link up between Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho results in the latter cutting back for Foden, who has the simple task of sweeping the ball home from close range.
