  • 92'
    FT: England 5-0 Albania! England took their foot off the pedal in the second half with the job well and truly done thanks to a ruthless first-half display. A point in their final game in San Marino and they will be heading to the World Cup finals, arguably with more confidence and verve than they displayed in reaching the final of UEFA EURO 2020. Ones to watch for sure.

    Roshi is penalised for a foul on Grealish.

    England double sub: TAA on for Reece James. Sterling is replaced by Smith Rowe, who beams as he jogs onto the Wembley pitch for his first taste of senior international action.
  • 71'
    The Chelsea defender is back in the thick of the action straight away, exchanging passes with sub Bellingham, whose intelligent back-heel affords James the opportunity to run into the box and shoot, but he can only drill a right-footed effort across the face of goal.
  • 69'
    Stones and James are back on their feet but the Chelsea man is still undergoing some medical checks off the pitch as play restarts.

  • 47'
    The in-form Cikalleshi collects a pass from Uzuni after the visitors regained possession thanks to Ramadani's interception. However, the 31-year-old forward can only fire his thumping, right-footed shot straight at the England goalkeeper, who gathers at the second attempt.

  • 45'
    45+2: GOAL for England! What a way to seal the hat-trick! Foden's inswinging corner from the right is met by the England skipper's acrobatic volley at the far post. It deflects off Dermaku and over the head of the helpless Strakosha, enabling the captain to grab his fourth Three Lions treble.
  • 45'
    2 minutes added on.
  • 42'
    Foden's back-heel rescues an England attack that appeared to have fizzled out, allowing James to whip in a sumptuous cross from the right that picks out the Three Lions captain in the centre of the box, who angles his diving header narrowly wide.
  • 38'
    So close for the hat-trick! James drives forward into the middle from the right before teeing up Sterling, who clips a pass out to the England skipper in space to the right of goal. The Tottenham forward takes a touch before sending a crisp, right-footed half-volley that whistles just past the far post.
  • 33'
    GOAL for England! The skipper bags another! Sterling bursts through the midfield before spotting the intelligent run of his fellow forward along the Albania back line. Kane engineers a shooting opportunity, blasting high into the net with his left from a tight angle.
Goal

  • 28'
    GOAL for England! England have another! Henderson and Kane exchange passes on the edge of the box, with the forward's lay-off perfect for the Liverpool midfielder to burst into the box. He takes it round Ismajli before slotting low into the net.

  • 18'
    GOAL for England! The hosts have a second! The skipper caps a fine England move, after Henderson and Foden combine well on the right. The Liverpool midfielder gets to the byline before putting in a pinpoint centre for the 28-year-old forward to attack, and he powers a header into the far corner.
  • 17'
    Albania second sub: Dermaku on for Kumbulla.

    The teams make their way out here!

    It's 13 degrees and mostly cloudy in London for this one.

    Ruddy Buquet is the referee for this match, while Bastian Dankert is the VAR.

    Wembley in all its splendour.
  • PRVW
    Albania have also switched their formation about in recent qualifiers and they also settle on a back three tonight. That means Veseli will play as the left-sided centre-back as opposed to the left-back position he started in during last month's defeat to Poland. Hysaj and Trashi will play in the wing-back roles.
  • PRVW
    Phillips returns to the starting XI for the first time since September's draw in Poland with Henderson his partner in the centre of midfield, while Foden and Sterling get the nod alongside Kane in the attacking third.
  • PRVW
    Southgate opts for three at the back again tonight, having switched to a four in last month's 1-1 draw with Hungary. Walker will therefore shift into a more central role with Chilwell and James taking up the wing-back roles.
