    England 2-0 Estonia

    England manager Roy Hodgson, speaking to ITV: "Ross Barkley has been important to this group for a long time, he’s been maturing in his performances for Everton and for England and it was great for him to go out and play as well as he did in an important qualifier match. He deserves a lot of credit.

    "If you look through the other results tonight you can see how hard it can be. A lot of games are won by the odd goal, and quite often the big teams have to work hard to get their 1-0 victory. There are literally no easy games at international level. You have to be patient and keep working away, and I was pleased with our patience and persistence."

  5. An excellent question...

  6. Manager reaction

    England 2-0 Estonia

    Roy Hodgson

    England manager Roy Hodgson, speaking to ITV: "It was as tough as we thought it would be. Estonia were well organised and they’re a team that is intelligent in the way they play.

    "We had to work hard, we attacked a lot, we had a lot of the ball had a lot of chances. I thought we were good value for our 2-0 win.

    "You have to come through these kind of games, if you are not careful you can slip up, and I’m glad we didn’t

    "Harry Kane did some fantastic work at centre forward setting things up and Jamie Vardy was only on the pitch a few minutes before he’d set up a goal.

    "If its true what people are telling me, and if this victory ensures we are seeded for the draw for the final tournament then that is important too, I’m only hoping I've not been misled, because these rankings fluctuate."

    Holders Spain booked their berth at Euro 2016 with a 4-0 win over Group C rivals Luxembourg. Arsenal's Santi Cazorla and Valencia's Paco Alcacer scored two each. However, the victory was tempered by the injuries to David Silva and Alvaro Morata.

    Behind them it's between Slovakia, who lost 1-0 to Belarus, and Ukraine, who beat Macedonia 2-0, for the second automatic spot. They are both on 19 points.

    Switzerland will join Group E rivals England at Euro 2016. Their 7-0 win over San Marino, coupled with Slovenia only managing a 1-1 draw against Lithuania, means they go to France.

    In Group G,Russia, need a point against Montenegro on Monday to secure qualification, after their 2-1 win against Moldova.

    It is hard to draw up a list of plus points Roy Hodgson can draw up from a game like this. I know I said that Jack Butland should have been given a game but to be honest I don't think he would have touched the ball yet.

    "At the moment it's a nearly performance from England. They're dominating the game, but apart from Theo Walcott's terrific volley, they've wasted the ball in good areas.

    "Raheem Sterling goes past his man every time but he still doesn't have an end product. There's got to be a cross or a shot."

    Full marks to Theo Walcott for effort. He commissions and then follows up a fine move down the England right, playing one-twos with Nathaniel Clyne and then Harry Kane before teeing up Raheem Sterling on the left of the area. Sterling goes for a pre-meditated curler but hasn't got the quality to steer it in. Better.

    Not a good few days for Manchester City. They must be hoping Kevin de Bruyne gets through Belgium's trip to Andorra unscathed.

    Raheem Sterling, the fourth member of City's big four, skips past his man easily but then can't pick out a team-mate. Some fans still coming in at Wembley.

    Manchester City

    Manchester City have already suffered one injury blow this week when striker Sergio Aguero was carried off with a hamstring injury playing for Argentina against Ecuador.

    And now midfielder David Silva has hobbled off playing for Spain against Luxembourg in tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier.

    It has been reported that Silva was on the wrong end of a poor challenge by midfielder Lars Krogh Gerson.

    Ukraine, who play Macedonia,can still qualify automatically, but only if Spain and/or Slovakia slip up in their final matches.

    Third in the group guarantees a spot in the play-offs, remember. And of all nine third-placed teams across the groups, the one with the most points gets an automatic qualifying spot too.
