England sets World Cup record with Grealish goal
Monday’s 6-2 thrashing of Iran in Group B gave England a nearly flawless start to its World Cup campaign.
The goal total was tallied by five different goal scorers as Gareth Southgate’s team ended a six-match losing streak.
In their final goal of the night, Jack Grealish completed a 35-pass play, the most extended goal-to-goal progression in a World Cup since 1966. This goal epitomized the Three Lions’ dominance.
Many people consider Esteban Cambiasso’s goal for Argentina versus Serbia and Montenegro in the 2006 World Cup to be one of the best goals of the competition after the 24-pass move. When Harry Kane scored a goal in the last World Cup, England surpassed Argentina’s mark.
