  1. Post update

    I will eat my keyboard if Roy Hodgson doesn't pick a fit Wayne Rooney at Euro 2016, but there you go.

    While you think about that I'm off - Wales wrap up the final night of Euro 2016 qualifiers tomorrow, see you there. 

  2. Rooney in or out?

    Five journalists have named their preferred starting XIs for the Euros next summer - and not everyone has found a place for captain Wayne Rooney.

    Is he in or out? 

    Have a read here and see what you think...

  3. 'Work to do'

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Roy Hodgson

    Even more from Roy Hodgson on BBC Radio 5 live: "We know that we've got work to do still. Some players coming back from injury will mean we'll have a lot of competition for places, and hopefully also we'll learn from the matches we'll play now against Spain and France next, and then Germany and Holland, because those are teams who have shown they can do well in finals competitions.

    "They are more likely to show up any defects in our game than we were able to see tonight."

  4. Who's who?

    The qualification process is almost over and the make-up of next summer's Euro 2016 is starting to take shape.

    There will be 24 teams competing in the finals. France were assured of a place as hosts, and a further 19 countries qualify automatically - 18 by finishing either first or second in their group and one more as the highest third-placed finisher.

    There will also be four play-off ties to determine the final four teams competing in France.

    Eighteen teams are there and we have profiled the lot.

    Abdul Wahab: I would go with 4-2-3-1 with Carrick and Ross Barkley in midfield, Rooney in the 10 position and Kane up front replacing Wilshere.

    David Corbett: Hart, Bertrand, Clyne, Cahill, Stones, Henderson, Barkley, Rooney, Sturridge, Kane, Walcott. Rooney should drop into central midfield.

    England captain Phil Jagielka on 5 live Sport: "It was a fantastic honour tonight, and the icing on the cake was the performance. Three great goals by three great, promising young talents. Nice too for the fans who had come over, and nice to win as captain. 

    "No games are easy, especially in international football. We got momentum early in the qualifying campaign and just kept it going and going. 

    "Fair play to the coaching staff and the management, and the boys saw through the job to the last day today."

    More from England boss Roy Hodgson: "I can't fault anyone tonight - a good performance, dominant, and a nice way to end the qualifying campaign. 

    "We will use the upcoming friendlies to learn, to see where we are. If we concentrate and play properly we can do well. It would have been a surprise if we had not qualified. But the upcoming friendlies are better, stronger opposition sides. We'll see how we deal with that."

    England manager Roy Hodgson: "This is an achievement. I am very proud of the players' performances. I thought it was excellent, in the first half especially. There was a lot of hard work put in, the quality of play was good and 10 wins out of 10 is very satisfying - we've got to take a lot of pride in that. 

    "We have used a lot of players in the qualifiers due to injury, so everyone who was part of this troupe has contributed. The players who represented us tonight did a terrific job and they have got to feel they have strengthened their chances if being considered for France."

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Kyle Walker's distribution has been a bit scattergun this evening but he plays a gem of a ball through to send Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain into the penalty area. He's wide on the right, the angle is not great but the Arsenal man just puts the laces through it and rips it right past the goalkeeper and into the roof of the net.

    You have to score that! Harry Kane meets Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's cross from the right, Giedrius Arlauskis makes a smart save but the rebound is there for a tap-in. Kane fluffs his left-footed connection though and it's turned over...

  66. GOAL - Lithuania 0-2 England

    Giedrius Arlauskis (OG)

    Brilliant again from Harry Kane - he's been England's best player all night. He plays a cracking one-two with Adam Lallana, drives into the area and then hits a hammer of a left-foot shot. Off the post, off the keeper's head and in. Like Wayne Rooney v Switzerland, Euro 2004. 

    It goes down as an own goal for the Lithuania keeper.

    Blimey. Aldino's getting all hot and bothered...

  68. GREAT SAVE!

    Lithuania 0-1 England

    Good save Jack Butland! Lithuania's first real attack sees Lukas Spalvis get clear on the left, just outside the area. His shot is hard and well directed, it may take a touch off Phil Jagielka and Butland has to make a flying save with his left hand.

  74. GOAL - Lithuania 0-1 England

    Ross Barkley

    The game needed that! Ross Barkley shows his technique again to turn away from a defender with a lovely first touch and then arrows an early, powerful shot on goal from 20 yards. It takes a huge deflection off the back of a defender and hits the post on its way in. Will that light the blue-touch paper?

    England's best, maybe only, route to goal so far has been a 20-yarder from Harry Kane. Jamie Vardy and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been anonymous since that opening two or three minutes. Could the full-backs push on and offer some width?

    Nice one-two on the right wing sends Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in behind the full-back, the Ox powers on and arrows a low cross into the penalty area but it's well dealt with by Giedrius Arlauskis.

    There have just been a few brief skirmishes between rival fans at one end of this tiny stadium where some England fans have posted themselves near Lithuania supporters. Riot police were quickly on the scene have now formed a human barrier separating the two groups. All calm for now.

  92. KICK-OFF

    Lithuania 0-0 England

    The less said of that, the better. I've not seen or heard anything from here - but I am in Salford.

    We are under way! The pitch is very wet, big splashes up from each bounce so far.

    "Thankfully the trouble that was alluded to earlier on seems to have been quelled. There are riot police in the stands to our right. I don't know what sparked it, but I have seen missiles being thrown. Just awful, absolutely awful. So out of keeping with the day we've had in this beautiful city."

    It's even smaller than FA Cup third-round day in fact. It has the look of your local 5-a-side centre. There's another set of blokes kicking a mitre delta around the car park waiting for England to get off. Has everyone got £3?

    "England qualified for the World Cup in Brazil with ease, but were a disaster at the tournament. England could have won this particular group playing their under-21s. 

    "England have been in control from kick-off in every game they've played. They might have won every game, and well done to them, but just look at the opposition."

    This may be a dead rubber in a qualification context for England - but not for the likes of Leicester City's Jamie Vardy.

    It's almost as if Uefa has made the qualifying groups easier for seeded sides. As four years ago Germany and Spain both put their respective opposition to the sword. Twice.

    Germany were in particularly ruthless mood, scoring 34 times on their way to the finals.

    But when it came down to it, Spain were the men to beat - picking up the trophy for a second consecutive  time after thumping Italy - conquerors of Germany - in the final.

  107. 'Lithuania are not going to beat England tonight'

    BBC Radio 5 live in Vilnius

    "Tonight is a great opportunity to put Plan B into action. If England, in the future, are 1-0 down and need a goal, then what is the solution? Tonight is the chance to work on that solution. 

    "Let's be honest, Lithuania are not going to beat England tonight. So if 10 wins from 10 doesn't happen for England tonight, I will be a little disappointed."

  108. The perfect 10

    France (Euro 2004)

    Zinedine Zidane, Thierry Henry, er, Sylvain Wiltord - the French of 2002-03 cruised to a 100% record before meeting - and beating - England in the opening group game.

    Remember that? Wayne Rooney was brilliant, Zidane scored twice in the last minute...

    But the pesky Greeks put paid to France's chances in the quarter-finals on their way to a remarkable win.

    Finalists in 1996, the Czech Republic won all 10 of their qualifiers on the road to Euro 2000, winning their group by a massive 12 points.

    However, defeats to co-hosts the Netherlands and France meant it was group stage and out for the team of Rosicky, Nedved, Koller and Poborsky...

    "That is not a poor England XI, but it is effectively a reserve team. There are plenty of injuries, and Roy doesn't want to risk any players on this artificial pitch. 

    "But this is a fantastic opportunity for this starting side. None of those players are likely to start in the first game in France, assuming everyone is fit. So a great chance to put a marker down and show Roy Hodgson that you are ready for this stage."

  112. The perfect 10?

    France (Euro '92)

    Played eight, won eight, scored 20, conceded six. France entered Euro 92 in buoyant form and boasting a side of Jean-Pierre Papin, Eric Cantona, Didier Deschamps and Laurent Blanc.

    What could go wrong? Everything. The French drew 0-0 with England in a bad-tempered group match before losing to Denmark and it was an early au revoir. Like England, they went out in the group stage.

    And yes - Steve Bruce of course.

    For some players, 90 minutes is all you get. For some, 90 minutes would be lovely.

    We've assembled this team of players whose England careers lasted less than 90 minutes in total.

    Crystal Palace defender Martin Kelly has officially the shortest England career in history, but you can't take his two minutes against Norway in 2012 away from him.

    Some big names there too. Nigel Winterburn got just 23 minutes, Joey Barton 11. A cruel game...

    Team who played fewer than 90 minutes: Nigel Spink; Martin Kelly, Ryan Shawcross, Anthony Gardner, Nigel Winterburn; Lee Bowyer, Lee Hendrie, Joey Barton, Matt Jarvis; Fraizer Campbell, Chris Sutton

    England boss Roy Hodgson, unsurprisingly, disagrees with the notion that England caps are easy to come by these days.

    "I think you have to be careful with those sorts of comments because I don't think it's a situation where the moment you kick the ball correctly from A to B you'll get in the England team," he said. "It's not like that at all.

    "But if you do come in and make an impact as a young player and there are a lot of injuries in the first team, there may be opportunities."

    Lithuania v England (19:45 BST)

    Has it ever been easier to win an England cap?

    Was competition fiercer just a few years ago?

    In the 1990s, strikers Stan Collymore, Andy Cole and Sir Les Ferdinand won 35 caps BETWEEN THEM - despite scoring 398 Premier League goals. Massive.

    In the current set-up Danny Welbeck has 33. Stewart Downing has won 35...

    Stan Collymore
    Image caption: Stan Collymore's England career lasted 84 minutes...

    Jamie Carragher, writing in his column in the Daily Mail,  said: "It has never been easier to win an England call-up. If anyone doubted that, Roy Hodgson's latest squad proved how quickly a young player can be elevated. Dele Alli's inclusion in the group for the games against Lithuania and Estonia caused eyebrows to be raised."

    Is it boring winning all the time? England fans certainly aren't used to it and this qualifying campaign has seemed all but over since the opening win away in Switzerland.

    Tonight Roy Hodgson goes for 10 wins out of 10 (though even a defeat is of no consequence if we're being honest), he's left half his team at home without being overly experimental and the most interesting nugget of the pre-match news conferences was that Lithuania will be 'well organised.'

    Let's see how well organised. German public transport? Underground car parking in Brugges? My CD collection?
