There was even scope for a Kyle Walker error – Jordan Pickford proving his growing dependability once again as he saved from Myrto Azuni.

Minutes later, Jordan Henderson combined well with Phil Foden to create a simple one-yard header which even Kane had enough form left to convert.

Once Harry Kane had started scoring, England knew everything was going to be all right – although nobody, perhaps, anticipated the manner of the victory.

Kane fired in his second after Raheem Sterling selflessly chose to put him in rather than go it alone.
