The love for Saka was a feature. One of the three players to miss from the spot against Italy and suffer racial abuse on social media, he drew the loudest cheer when the teams were announced beforehand and how his goal was celebrated.

He was saluted after full-time when he handed his shirt to a fan behind one of the goals.

Lingard scored the first and third goals and Harry Kane, on as a substitute, rammed home a penalty for 2-0 – his 40th for England, taking him level with Michael Owen in fifth on the all-time list.

Job done. Next up for England is a trip to Poland on Wednesday where qualification to next year’s World Cup could move even closer.
