Match No. 1050 - Friday, 17th November 2023, 7:45pm

  • Assist: Phil Foden. "Foden’s first touch, with which he sent the ball up the inside-right channel to chase himself, was typically instinctive and how he chased, flicking on the afterburners to zoom into the area. He thought that the cutback was on but it did not reach Kane, hitting Pepe instead and flying past Bonello. Pepe can say that he scored at Wembley." Enrico Pepe, 8' (og)7:08
  • Assist: Bukayo Saka. "Southgate got Foden into a No 10 role after the interval and he was involved in the second goal, looking first-time for Saka after positive approach work from Alexander-Arnold and Walker. Saka then went to Kane with a pass that was as astute as it was unselfish. Kane did what he does, his 62nd England goal a formality..." Harry Kane62nd of 66 goals. Right-footed from 8 yards., 75' 74:11

      (c)63rd captaincy 27:43 "The big talking point came when Godinho chose to ignore Kane’s penalty claim [27:34]. It was a questionable decision and to caution him was too much. Bonello had taken a heavy touch on a backpass, Kane nipped in and left his trailing leg behind him, waiting for the contact, which duly came."

Notes

  • Goal Disallowed"[Rice] stormed forward from midway inside the Malta half and, with red shirts backing off, he cut inside and lashed past Bonello from outside the box [75:43]. Unfortunately for him, the VAR had spotted that the shot had brushed off Kane, who was in an offside position [77:30]."
