England got their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign off to a winning start this evening following a 1-0 victory over

Adam Lallana scored his first international goal for England to snatch a late win and put the Three Lions at the the top of group F.

The Liverpool star found the back of the net in the 90 + 5 minute of the game to give manager Sam Allardyce a positive start to his England career.

The former Liverpool man Martin Skrtel was sent off after 57 minutes after stamping on Harry Kane’s leg. The aggressive defender made the move to the Turkish Super giants over the summer after fallout out of favour with the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

Wayne Rooney surpassed David Beckham to become England’s record appearance holder for an outfield player and was given a free role by manager Allardyce. The former Sunderland boss also fielded Man City’s John Stones in place of United’s Chris Smalling.

England’s next fixture is against Spain in November for an international friendly.
