England have knocked Wales out of the World Cup in Qatar, with a clinical 3-0 performance against a continuously poor Welsh team.
It leaves England unbeaten in Group B, with nine goals scored and just two conceded, with a meeting against Senegal in the round-of-16.
After a score of 0-0 at halftime, Damien Duff commented on RTE that England would be waiting another 56 years to win a World Cup if they continued in a similar vein.
Despite an excellent second-half from England, both Duff and his co-pundit Liam Brady struggled to compliment Gareth Southgate's side, and when they did give praise it was followed by a caveat.
"England you'd have to say, well done Gareth Southgate, changing the wingers," remarked Duff. "Listen a straightforward change, you usually do that as management team or coach.
"Foden is better off on the left anyway and it was his personality and character that wins the free-kick. Like Liam said, very poor from Danny Ward."
But they were clinical and that's where they showed their class. Am I still convinced by them? Absolutely no. But they put them to the sword. So good night, and a good draw. Senegal in the next round.

Liam Brady and Damien Duff have been less than impressed by that first half.

Brady had similar views to Duff, and remarked on the lack of quality in their group.
"They finished off the first half not bad, the last five minutes. Second-half they got a very good goal from a very good free-kick from Rashford. But as Ronnie said in commentary you have to question the Welsh goalkeeper Danny Ward.
"England had a comfortable game. Winning two-nil after the first five minutes of the second-half, it almost became a practice match. They could make all those substitutions, they could rest players.
"They really have been fortunate to be in the group they've been in, it was so easy for them to get out of it."
