Rashford came in for a lot of criticism, butWales boss Coleman thinksPogbashould be helping out his inexperienced team-mate.Coleman told Sky Sports: “When Rashford’s been playing wide he’s tracking wingers and tracking full backs which is totally different [from playing as a striker].

“He’s up against Oxlade-Chamberlain who is an aggressive winger.

“I thoughtPogba could have come across and helped him out.”The young boy Marcus is a great player, he’s burst onto the scene.

“But I thinkPogba could have come across, seen the danger and thought, ‘He needs a bit of help here. [If] it’s two v one then maybe we can containOxlade-Chamberlain.”So I think the finger was pointed at Marcus Rashford and I think that was a bit harsh.”
