Kick Off
And we’re off here at Wembley, England attacking towards the left.

5′ It’s been a cagey first few minutes here at Wembley tonight, a half chance for Wales but not much else to report on. Let’s hope this game livens up throughout.

12′ Good chance for England as Calvert-Lewin gets on the end of a clever pass from Ings but can’t get the finish off from the tight angle, despite taking it past the keeper.

17′ After that small flash of excitement, the game has slowed back down again, with neither side really putting their stamp on the match

20′ CHANCE Moore has an opportunity to put Wales 1 up but his volleyed effort is dragged the wrong side of the post

25′ GOAL It just had to be him didn’t it. Calvert-Lewin gets on the end of Grealish’s cross to head England into the lead. His first senior England goal to go nicely with his cap tonight.

31′ Wales trying to get back into this game now but it’s not quite working out for them in the final third. Perhaps the drinks break will give them a chance to regroup.

37′ CHANCE Keane’s cross, following a corner, falls to the feet of Coady but can’t capitalize, on a rare chance for the defender, sending it into the stands.

39′ Moore is forced to leave the pitch early due to an ankle injury. Neco Williams will be the man to replace him, perhaps hoping to replicate his last gasp winner in his last Wales appearance.

42′ BOOKING Roberts is shown the yellow card for his late challenge on Saka.

45′ There will be two extra minutes played of this first half

HALF TIME You’d be forgiven for only just waking back up as The Three Lions lead Wales at the break thanks to a debut goal from Calvert-Lewin, in what was a fairly eventless first half.

46′ Second half kicks off.

49′ Just a warning for Ampadu following a poorly timed challenge on Grealish. England will have a deep freekick in their own half.

53′ GOAL A picture perfect whipped free kick from Kieran Trppier falls perfectly to Coady who this time fires home to claim his first goal in an England shirt.

54′ OFFSIDE Wales almost instantly reply with a low driven shot that strikes the post but the linesman raises his flag.

56′ SUB Trippier, Gomez and Calvert-Lewin make way for James, Mount and Mings. Calvert- Lewin especially can be proud of his performance today.

60′ BOOKING Levitt is shown a yellow for his push on Winks.

61′ SUB Ampadu makes way for Vaulks

62′ GOAL A night of first goals this evening as this time its Danny Ings who finishes creatively with an overhead kick following a corner. This is more like it eh?

65′ It could be four for England but Ings can’t quite get himself on the end of a Jack Grealish Cross.

69′ SAVE Saka takes a well struck shot that is deflected on its way on goal forcing an impressive reaction save from Hennessey. Almost another debut goal tonight at Wembley

73′ SUB Wales make some more changes with Gunter and Smith coming on for Roberts and Williams

75′ SUB On come Ward-Prowse, Barnes and Maitland-Niles for Saka, Winks and Grealish

82′ CHANCE Maitland Niles dances through the Welsh defence but is unable to get a shot away. Moments later Ings has a well placed effort from the edge of the box saved by Hennessey. England have comfortably controlled the game today.

90′ Both teams happy to just lower the tempo and play a more slow passing game as England edge closer to a certain victory. Two Minutes added on to the ninety

90+2′ Ward-Prowse has a crack from long range but Hennessey is able to get down low and prevent the Southampton regular from adding to the lead.

Full Time Wales 8 game unbeaten streak comes to an end here tonight at Wembley as England ease three goals into the Welsh net. Calvert-Lewin, Coady and Ings all claiming their debut international goals tonight in what will be a game to remember for all three of them.
