Daniel Sturridge struck as England beat Scotland 3-0 in their World Cup qualifier at Wembley.

In one of Gareth Southgate’s toughest decisions, the interim manager started the Liverpool forward – despite finding himself out of the Reds’ best XI – and was duly rewarded with a clever first half header, to put England in front.

Scotland started the second half the stronger of the two sides, and had a golden opportunity to level, but James Forrest missed a sitter.

Minutes later, Gordon Strachan’s side were punished, as Adam Lallana headed home Danny Rose’s cross.

Gary Cahill’s header added some gloss to the scoreline and sent the hosts clear at the top of Group F and on track to reach Russia 2018.
