Sterling, Kane, Sancho: England tore apart Kosovo in first 45

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 858

England fell behind in the first minute against Kosovo. However, Southgate's attack appeared to almost put the game beyond Kosovo: Kane, Sancho and especially Sterling were vital for the home side.

Kosovo got off to a fabulous start with an early goal from Berisha. It was England's only blemish in the first 45 minutes of the match. 

Nevertheless, it is worth pointing out that the equaliser after seven minutes started their charge. It was Sterling, although not with his foot, but with his head. The City striker headed home after Keane's header in the air. 

He got England going and then Kane, after 19 minutes, did his usual. Sterling assisted and Kane controlled before firing a low shot past the Kosovan keeper. 

A curious stat is that, thanks to that goal, the Kane-Sterling partnership has created four goals for England in four Euro 2020 qualfying matches. 

Luck was not on Kosovo's side either as they scored an own goal. The 3-1 goal really hurt Bernard Challandes' men. 

Finallly, Sancho, who started ahead of Rashford, joined the party with two goals in three minutes on the stroke of half-time. A lot of credit has to go to Sterling, who had two assists to his tally for England.
