Harry Kane thought he got on the scoresheet, but it was an own goal

Roy Hodgson’s men had already qualified for Euro 2016, but set out for their first ever trip to Lithuania, looking to make it a perfect 10 out of 10 wins in their group. 

On 10 minutes Kane conjured up the first real chance of the match as he peeled away from the left-hand side and drove a shot towards goal, which almost slid into the bottom corner from distance.

The first goal came from Ross Barkley who shifted the ball from right to left past Panka and drove a shot into the back of the net past Arlauskis. It came via a deflection off the back of Mikuckis.

After 35 minutes Kane played a lovely one-two with Lallana deep into their opposition’s territory and saw his shot strike the post and then the back of Arlauskis on its way into the net. It was given as an own goal.

Just after the hour, Walker powered forward from right wing in a narrow position and slipped in Oxlade-Chamberlain, who made no mistake from close range as he fired the ball into the top corner.

Dele Alli came on in the 67th minute, and Danny Ings got some game time for half an hour in the second half.

The game ended with Lithuania finishing 5th in the group and England first.
