Match No. 1053 - Tuesday, 26th March 2024, 7:45pm

  • "Mainoo provided the spark, the X-factor. Everybody knows by now about Mainoo’s ability to drop his shoulder and turn sharply in the opposite direction, leaving his marker for dust...He bamboozled Tielemans with the move before finding Bellingham and he slid in Toney, who had broken behind Jan Vertonghen. The Belgium defender, who was winning his 154th cap, was never the favourite to win the ball when he lunged and, once Toney went to ground [14:32], he was already thinking about the penalty. He had a long wait but it did not faze him. Nothing does in this situation. Two paces back, one big step forward, intimidation with the eyes for the goalkeeper: 1-1 [16:47]." Ivan ToneyOnly Goal. Right-footed from 12 yards., 17' 16:47 (pen)
  • Assist: James Maddison. "England’s pulse was faint. The four additional minutes would expire. And yet there was one last surge, Dunk winning a header, James ­Maddison, on as a substitute, ­heading forward for another replacement, Ollie Watkins, to chase to the byline. Somehow, the Aston Villa forward retrieved the ball, which allowed Maddison to craft a lovely cut-back and there was ­Bellingham. The ­midfielder had fluffed two gilt‑edged chances but now he took a touch to steady himself before guiding home with a cool sidefoot." Jude Bellingham3rd of 3 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 90'+5'94:27

  • "England’s start went from bad to worse when Pickford sent a routine clearance straight at Amadou Onana, who fed Tielemans. With Pickford tearing back towards his goal, left to right, Tielemans cleverly shot back for the goalkeeper’s left-hand post. The execution was low and clinical." Youri Tielemans, 11' 10:23
  • "Dunk got across to deal with a ­Tielemans long ball but then he stretched and missed his kick, ­allowing Romelu Lukaku to get on it. The Roma forward’s ­outside‑of‑the‑boot cross was a beauty; Tielemans converted with a diving header." Youri Tielemans, 36' 35:02
