In the 52nd minute of this evening’s World Cup Qualifier against minnows San Marino, England made it 4-0 as Dominic Calvert-Lewin tapped into the gaping net, with the build-up being lovely to watch.
Ben Chilwell was slotted the ball in midfield, the Chelsea left-back ensured that a Blues player had a key hand in all of the Three Lions’ goals tonight as he squeezed the ball through to Jesse Lingard on the left.
