Against minnows Andorra, it was never likely to be anything other than a stroll to victory and so it proved as England ran out 4-0 winners.

Goals from Juventus’ Samuel Iling, Aston Villa’s Carney Chukwuemeka and a double from Tottenham’s Dane Scarlett sealed the three points, in the match in which Edwards completed 90 minutes; his third cap.

England go on to face tougher tests against Switzerland on Friday (November 13) and Sweden on Tuesday (November 16). All of the matches are being played in Sweden.
