  • Final whistle blows right on the 90-minute mark. Job done. Really little more to say than that after an efficient, clinical performance from England against opponents out of their depth.

    90
  • Scott Parker gives away a free-kick. That should be that.

    90
  • Osman wins a free-kick in the centre-circke. There will be no added time.

    90
  • Osman gives the ball away and then concedes a free-kick.

    89
  • Osman clips a cross in from the left, but it's easy for Simoncini.

    87
  • Another chance for Defoe to get his third but his cross-shot ends up being neither one thing nor the other.

    86
  • Young and Sturridge not quite on the same wavelength as they look to pick a path through the San Marino defence.

    86
  • Chance for Defoe to complete his hat-trick, but he heads wide from Oxlade-Chamberlain's cross.

    85
  • England still playing with purpose here. The three substitutes have all looked busy and helped keep the intensity high despite the game being long over.

    83
  • Carlo Valentini replaces Bollini.

    81
  • Nice run and shot from Osman, but he drags it just wide.

    81
  • Oxlade-Chamberlain's cutback is well held by Simoncini.

    80
  • GOAL - DEFOE! Smartly done again as Walker gets to the byline and cuts the ball back for Defoe to turn it home at the near post.

    77
  • Baines' free-kick works the keeper, but he beats it away to safety.

    75
  • Danillo Rinaldi replaces Selva.

    75
  • Oxlade-Chamberlain wins a free-kick, very much in shooting range.

    74
  • Montenegro have won 1-0 in Chisinau so retain top spot in the group ahead of Tuesday night's crucial clash.

    73
  • The corner is half-cleared, prompting more careful build-up play from England in front of the massed San Marino defences.

    72
  • Walker wins a corner on the right-hand side.

    71
  • GOAL - STURRIDGE! Yes, the opposition is barely existent, but it's another well-worked England goal as Defoe slips the ball through for Young to stand up a cross to the back post where Sturridge this time makes no mistake.
