Jesse Lingard played a key role as England beat San Marino 5-0 at Wembley on Thursday.
The Three Lions took on the worst side in the FIFA world rankings in their first qualifier for the 2022 World Cup and unsurprisingly ran out comfortable winners.
Lingard played the 90 minutes and while he didn’t score, the on-loan Hammer did provide a lovely assist for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score the Three Lions’ fourth goal.
He zipped down the left flank and pulled the ball back for the Everton striker, who tapped it in from two yards out.
Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse opened the scoring, while Calvert-Lewin scored the second and the fourth, Raheem Sterling got the third and Ollie Watkins of Aston Villa scored the fifth.
Lingard had a number of shots on goal throughout the game and was regularly denied by San Marino’s goalkeeper, who was easily their best player!
Declan Rice stayed on the bench for the duration, but he could be used in the next couple of games, when England take on Albania and Poland.
