In what was absolutely their most full efficiency of the event, the Three Lions had been vastly superior to Andriy Shevchenko’s facet.
Harry Kane bought them off to a dream begin as he latched onto a superb go from Raheem Sterling and poked the ball within the internet inside 4 minutes.

That they had one or two nervous moments within the first half although with Roman Yaremchuk forcing Jordan Pickford into a wise save after Kyle Walker gave the ball away.
However any nerves had been all gone inside the first 5 minutes of the second half as England raced to a 3-Zero lead.
Harry Maguire made it 2-Zero as he powerfully headed in Luke Shaw’s pinpoint free-kick from the left.
Shaw turned the supplier as soon as once more as he crossed for Kane, who headed by the legs of Bushchan – the quickfire assists incomes Shaw large reward because the left-back was even dubbed ‘Shawberto Carlos’, a hilarious comparability to Brazilian icon Roberto Carlos.
You’d have forgiven England for settling for 3 however they continued to search for one other as Kane was denied a hat-trick as Bushchan saved out his very good volley.
But it surely mattered not as Buschan was crushed seconds later – Jordan Henderson heading in a nook from the proper, his first ever purpose for England on what was his 62nd look.
