Declan Rice started as England beat Albania 2-0 in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday evening.
The Three Lions recorded their second win of the week after beating San Marino 5-0 in midweek.
On Sunday, goals from Harry Kane and Mason Mount proved decisive as England took control of their group.
Rice played the entire 90 minutes and was a calming presence in the centre of midfield, routinely taking the ball from the defence and circulating it around the midfield.
He often drove forward, too, as he went in search of a way to change the game.
Jesse Lingard also came off the bench late on as England saw out the game with a minimum of fuss.
It remains to be seen if either of the two will play in midweek when the Three Lions take on Poland at Wembley.
Rice is a key member of the squad while Lingard has only just returned to Southgate’s setup.
