England saw off San Marino with a whopping 10-0 win last night as the visitors ran riot.

Harry Kane will once again grab headlines for his second successive England hattrick, but there were plenty of newer faces making an impression.

Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips started once again in midfield while Arsenal duo Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka got the nod from Gareth Southgate too.

Both of the Gunners got on the scoresheet, but Saka will be frustrated he didn’t get his first England brace, as England’s second was credited as a Filippo Fabbri own goal.

As he cut inside, his shot deflected and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.

That’s not how Phillips saw it though, as Saka revealed on Instagram what the Leeds star told him:

It’s harsh on Saka not to give him the goal, but it definitely wouldn’t have gone in without that touch.

Meanwhile, I’m enjoying seeing how Phillips is forming bonds with certain Leeds players.

It does seem as though he’s become really close friends with Saka since they both made their debuts.

You can see why given how infectiously positive both players are.
