Jon Hitching: Every team needs to win ugly sometime, even if it's really, really, really, really ugly.

Nick Southwell: A potential banana skin avoided. Not the greatest of games but nine points from nine. We definitely shouldn't be complaining.

Gary Miles: The tip of the diamond is blunt and pointless. A diamond formation is OK but Rooney is a problem...

Luxembourg v Spain (19:45 BST)

Big news from Spain where goalkeeper Iker Casillas has been dropped after a list of high-profile errors. Manchester United's David de Gea is in nets for the national side.

Will Binks: Bobby Charlton played in a World Cup winning team, whereas Rooney has had to play alongside the likes of Stewart Downing and Stephen Warnock, yet still kept up his scoring. England legend.

Kane in Shrewsbury: So much negativity. Potential three wins from three. Spain, Germany, Portugal etc would love that. Wish the unpatriotic moaners would give it a rest.

Sitting pretty

England are on top of Group E with maximum points from three games. Switzerland, by the way, next play San Marino away on Tuesday night.

Shaun Robinson: A win's a win and maximum points from three games. Can't ask for much more really.

Jake Seabrook: I thought Calum Chambers struggled today to be honest. Pretty boring game overall.

Ian Cantrill: Should score more Rooney today but he done his job and scored the winner! Three wins out of three. Four wins in a row for the first time in five years.

What's next?

Estonia 0-1 England

Bored by those last two games? Well there are two more games coming up for England next month.

First is a qualifier against Slovenia on Saturday 15 November before a friendly with Scotland on Tuesday 18 November. That should at least be fiery...

Danny Mills

Former England full-back on 6-0-6 on 5 live

"Wayne Rooney is still a very high-quality player. He may be lacking confidence, but tonight when his moment came he scored. And with Daniel Sturridge not there, you have to rely on Rooney to score your goals."

Manager reaction

Estonia 0-1 England

England manager Roy Hodgson: "It was hard work. We played well in the first half without taking our chances and that meant that there was an air of frustration setting in. Everyone was aware that when you have played well you have to take at least one chance. Luckily we did that in the second half and it's four wins in a row which is not to be sniffed at.

"We were going to put Rickie Lambert on but we were discussing which player would come off. It was more likely to be Danny Welbeck. It was a good free-kick from Wayne but it was a frustrating night for him. He scored the winner and we go away with three more points.

"We realise that Estonia will cause other teams problems here."

Danny Mills

Former England full-back on 6-0-6 on 5 live

"The final ball wasn't good enough. Is Wayne Rooney still our best player, and why is it we seem to struggle against these so-called lesser nations?

"As far as Raheem Sterling, I'd want to play every international game I could at this stage. I don't really believe a player his age will have gone to the manager and old him he's tired. Has there been influence from elsewhere? The club manager, for example? Who knows."

Estonia 0-1 England

Goals from midfield is an issue for England now. James Milner has one, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain three and Andros Townsend two. That's it from the midfielders in the current squad.

Richard Priseman: Why are people still slating Rooney? He won us the game!

Scott Kelly: Too reliant on Rooney, I think. With Gerrard and Lampard gone we need to ease pressure on him and goals need to come from elsewhere.

Rob Gore: Results only mean so much against these teams. It's the performances which worry, with bigger teams awaiting in France.

We asked for your England man of the match, and Jack Wilshere has topped the vote, with 36.1% of you opting for the Arsenal midfielder.

Thanks for voting.

Estonia 0-1 England

The enigma that is Wayne Rooney continues to divide England supporters it seems. He looks almost certain to break Sir Bobby Charlton's goalscoring record now, but would he get into an all-time England team?

Player reaction

England captain Wayne Rooney: "We knew that's how the game would go. We know they are tough games with men behind the ball and it's tough to break them down. It's a good win. For the goal, it was close in so I was focussing on getting it over the wall.

"I've shown over the years I'm always capable of scoring goals. The keeper made a good save at the end from me. We are playing well, the pleasing thing is that we have a young team and we hung in there."

Tom Alex Dodd: Nine points from nine, and the country simply complains. Yep, only in England.

G Alex: As much as people say Rooney isn't world-class, he is still still our best player by miles. Wilshere is the next best.

Matt Smith: I can't say England are playing amazingly, but they're getting the results!

Terry Butcher

Former England captain on 5 live

"It took something special from their captain to make sure England got the three points. Estonia displayed much more quality than San Marino, and it was England's perseverance that won the day.

"England will learn for this - not the best performance of all time and they had to work really hard to get the win. They've had three wins in this group now and they haven't conceded a goal."

Estonia 0-1 England

It wasn't pretty, in fact it was pretty boring for most of the game. But Roy Hodgson will take a win and move on. I'm sure of that.

FULL-TIME

Estonia 0-1 England

Nine points from nine. Job done.

"Rooney should probably have taken that effort earlier and just smashed it. That would have been game, set and match."

INJURY TIME

Estonia 0-1 England

There are four minutes added on. England look nervy but suddenly pick a right pass to free Wayne Rooney, He's one on one, a great chance - but he shoots at goalkeeper Sergei Pareiko!

A very good save, but a big miss too.

CLOSE!

Estonia 0-1 England

Two of England's subs add some excitement! Raheem Sterling puts a defender on his backside with a drop of the shoulder and works it across to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He then does the same, beating his man before standing up a cross which Wayne Rooney acrobatically hooks wide. Much better...

YELLOW CARD

Estonia 0-1 England

Cheap booking for England as Jack Wilshere rips the collar of Ilja Antonov's shirt, handing him off in midfield. England have gone backwards since scoring, but they have just three minutes to see out now.

"I think Jack Wilshere have done very well in that central role. The hard thing is, he's played against two teams who have simply sat back. He's worked very hard and looked good in that position, and games such as this will give him a lot of confidence too."

Estonia 0-1 England

Into the last five minutes, England closing in on a third win from three qualifiers. So far, so good? Or should you expect more from the national side?

Will Shepherd: Considering Spain and Germany lost, you have to take this right? Three points is all that matters...

Hasan: Where are the Rooney haters now ?

Mark Duffell: Cue the 'Rooney is world-class' comments and hyperbole. Let's ignore fact he's been appalling until that point.

Terry Butcher

Former England captain on 5 live

"England have gone flat, just letting Estonia have the ball and not putting them under any pressure. They need to up the intensity, because while they're not exactly hanging on England are giving Estonia some hope."

Estonia 0-1 England

The good, the bad, and the ugly from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. His first touch to control a pass is brilliant, his second one is poor and his third is a heavy tackle. Studs-up, he wins the ball cleanly but it's not the best tackle you've seen.

Elsewhere...

That Wayne Rooney goal means that deadlocks have been broken all across Europe, with Russia taking the lead against against Moldova through an Artyom Dzyuba penalty, only for Alexandru Epureanu to equalise.

Ukraine and Austria continue to hold one-goal leads over Macedonia and Montenegro respectively.

SUBSTITUTION

Estonia 0-1 England

Blackpool winger Sergei Zenjov comes off and is replaced by Motherwell's Henrik Ojamaa. At the same time Danny Welbeck is hooked for Rickie Lambert.

Estonia 0-1 England

It has been another so-so performance from Wayne Rooney. He missed the two clear chances in the first half and has been sloppy on the ball at times, but he has also conjured up a goal from nothing. One of England's all-time greats?

Cameron Laws: Hasn't performed well at all but get in Rooney. Can always produce something magical.

Ian Marks: Kind of reminds me of another skipper who used to get us out of jail with free-kicks...

Tom Swain: Okay, okay. So Wayne Rooney has managed to squeeze a free-kick in from 20 yards. I'm still not convinced.

Estonia 0-1 England

Wayne Rooney was about to be replaced by Rickie Lambert before he bent that free-kick in. Great timing.

"That's game over, to be honest. That free-kick was a great opportunity - before he took his kick, Rooney took a step to the left and inspected any gaps between keeper and post. He got his effort up and over the wall and the keeper just couldn't keep it out of his near post. An excellent free-kick, very precise."

GOAL

Estonia 0-1 England - Wayne Rooney

The breakthrough!

Wayne Rooney, on his 99th cap, bends in his 43rd international goal from that free-kick. He bends it over the wall and goalkeeper Sergei Pareiko can't claw it out before it crosses the line.

Sam: Cue being accused of no national pride, but can't help but feel internationals get in the way of proper football...

Worms everywhere, now you've opened that can...

Estonia 0-0 England

You are not alone Roy.

I know we were called out for being too negative earlier on but if anyone has any positives about a 0-0 in Estonia, against 10 men, and with their goalkeeper not having to make a save, we're all ears...

Estonia 0-0 England

BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty in Tallinn

"More frantic body language from England manager Roy Hodgson in his technical area. Not happy with what he is currently seeing."
