England a Step Closer After Andorra Win

Last updated : 10 October 2021 By Three Lions

England eased to victory in Andorra on Saturday evening, Gareth Southgate's side taking one step closer to World Cup qualification with a routine success.

Given his chance to shine in a Three Lions shirt, Manchester City's Phil Foden did not disappoint as England's main creative force in breaking down the stubborn, and at times forceful, defending of the home side.

His vision unlocked Andorra on two occasions in the first-half, allowing Ben Chilwell to score his first international goal and then Bukayo Saka to double the visitor's advantage.

Jadon Sancho also gave a reminder of his qualities with a lively display and he added to his assist on the Chilwell goal with another for Tammy Abraham to make it 3-0 before substitute Jack Grealish got in on the act, earning a penalty which James Ward-Prowse tucked away at the second attempt before getting his first England goal after alert play from goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to set him free.

England return to Wembley on Tuesday evening to face Hungary.
