The Three Lions made a dominant start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 38th minute courtesy of Jordan Henderson’s tidy finish. Harry Kane doubled England’s advantage in the first half injury-time with a clinical strike as Gareth Southgate’s men went into the half-time break with a 2-0 lead.
