Daneil Sturridge replicated his fine form for Liverpool for his national side, giving them a goal advantage in the 32 minute to send into the first half interval.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill doubled the lead for England 20 minutes into the second half before Phil Jagielka rounded off the goals for the Three Lions.
