England defeated Lithunia comfortably in a world cup qualifier to hold grip of the top of the group by 2-0 at Wembley stadium, giving the new manager Gareth Southgate a good result at Wembley since taking over from Alladyce.
But it was Vardy’s second goal for England that was significant and sealed up winning for the Three Lions, the English forward came as a substitute in the 66th minutes, scoring his 6th goal for England 6 minutes after his first touch of the ball on the field.
The win makes England the only team to have kept a clean sheet in each 2018 World Cup qualification game so far, while Defoe’s first goal for England makes him reach the 2o goal goal landmark for England.
Defoe is the 22nd player to reach this landmark of scoring 20 goals for England.
England will look up to playing Scotland in their next world cup qualifiers game later the year.
