Match No. 1049 - Tuesday, 17th October 2023, 7:45pm

  • Assist: Jude Bellingham. "England needed something quickly and they got it when Bellingham surged towards a breaking ball, straining every sinew to get there ahead of Di Lorenzo, feeling the contact from him and going down [27:46]. Kane’s side-foot was his 21st successful penalty for England." Harry Kane60th of 66 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 32' 31:01 (pen)
  • Assist: Jude Bellingham. "The game was meandering when Bellingham again stepped up, sliding to win the ball off Nicolò Barella on the edge of his own area, watching Phil Foden get on it and setting off himself. Foden’s Velcro touch and outside-of-the boot pass got England moving and then Bellingham did what he does – another surge, making the ball his ahead of Frattesi. He dinked it on, ran, found Rashford and ran some more, giving the Italy defence something to worry about. Rashford took his cue." Marcus Rashford17th of 17 goals. Right-footed from 18 yards., 57' 56:15
  • "It was all over when Kane punished slack Italy defending to extend his England goals record to 61..." Harry Kane61st of 66 goals. Right-footed from 18 yards., 77' 76:03

Scamacca was all alone in front of goal for an easy finish and an England inquest." Gianluca Scamacca, 15' 14:45
