Easy win for England

Gareth Southgate is yet to lose or concede a goal as Caretaker England Manager, and his second win in charge was his most impressive.

The Three Lions won the Battle of the Brit against Scotland with an easy 3-0 victory, thanks to three headed goals from Daniel Sturridge, Gary Cahill and Adam Lallana. England didn't play a breathtaking match by any means, but they were clinical and took their chances to find the goals and confirm a strong victory to stay on top of Group F and get closer to a World Cup spot.

Manchester City players involved in this game were quiet all night. Joe Hart and John Stones had very little trouble defending against the Scots, and Raheem Sterling is still yet to replicate his City form in an England shirt. He missed an unbelievable goal below the line, in what was his only real involvement in the match.

England now face Spain in a big friendly on Tuesday at Wembley, and that will probably be a lot tougher than what we saw on Friday night.
