    He may not have scored, but Harry Kane is once again leading by example on and off the pitch.

    I DON'T LIKE WEDNESDAYS

    While Bob Geldof hates Mondays, for Harry Kane it's Wednesdays. The England captain still hasn't scored on that day of the week for his county.

    FODEN'S THOUGHTS

    The Manchester City youngster has been speaking to Sky Sports after his two-goal performance for his country tonight.

    “To score my first goals for England, it means a lot to me.

    “I just couldn’t stop smiling after it. It’s an unbelievable feeling and I’m going to enjoy it as much as I can tonight.

    “I know Jadon [Sancho] well from playing with him in the youth team. When he got the ball, I arrived in the box and he gave me a good assist. Luckily it went in.

    “When you score, confidence is high and I took the second goal well.

    “It’s something I need to work on, scoring goals from outside the box, so I’m really happy with that one.”

    FODEN SO GOOD

    Here's the breakdown of an excellent night's work from Phil Foden.

    FODEN FINDS THE NET

    Phil Foden sweeps home his first international goal, and then went on to score his second less than four minutes later.

    BIG FUTURE FOR PHIL

    Manchester City's Phil Foden bagged his first international goals to cap an impressive evening, and will now be anticipating more playing time for club and country in the months to come.

    FT: ENGLAND 4-0 ICELAND

    England's youngsters excel at Wembley with two goals in each half. Declan Rice's header and Mason Mount's strike are followed up by Phil Foden's late double; his first goals for his country.

  • Sam Dymond

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

    THE FINAL WHISTLE IS BLOWN!

    90. As Foden shows off his skills on the touchline, three minutes of added time are signalled.

    89. England are pushing for a fifth, and should have it.

    Unmarked at the far post, Saka heads wide.

    The Arsenal teenager looked as surprised as anyone to find himself in that position.

    ENGLAND 4-0 ICELAND

    88. On a night where youth has excelled, Iceland throw on the 17-year-old son of former Aston Villa headcase Joey Gudjonsson.

    Isak BVergmann Johannesson replaces Birker Bjarnason.

  • Sam Dymond

    84. What a couple of minutes for the Man City youngster! What a night!

    Harry Maguire wins back possession after Iceland fail to fully clear their lines, and then Harry Winks slips the ball to Phil Foden.

    There's still much for the 20-year-old but he digs out a lovely left-footed shot from outside the box that swerves away from Hannes Thor Halldorsson and into the bottom corner.

    Brilliant!

    GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLL!!

    PHIL FODEN BAGS ANOTHER!!

  • Sam Dymond

    ENGLAND 3-0 ICELAND

    83. Phil Foden deserves that goal for his performance tonight…

  • Sam Dymond

    80. Having set up Declan Rice for a first England goal, Phil Foden now has his first for his country!

    Just off the bench, Jadon Sancho tricks his way down the left, plays a smart one-two with Bukayo Saka, and delivers a low cross to Foden.

    Head down over the ball, the Man City forward keeps his cool to sweep a lovely left-footed shot into the far corner beyond Hannes Thor Halldorsson.

    A really well-worked goal.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!

    PHIL FODEN MAKES IT THREE!!

    ENGLAND 2-0 ICELAND

    76. The last act of Harry Kane's night is to crash a free-kick into the Iceland defensive wall and cry for a penalty that is not forthcoming.

    The Tottenham striker makes way for Tammy Abraham after another busy night for his country. I wonder what his club manager will make of these 76 minutes.

    Also on is Jadon Sancho for Jack Grealish.

    ENGLAND 2-0 ICELAND

    73. Iceland make two more substitutions.

    Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson are on for strikers Albert Gudmundsson and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson..

    In the meantime, Jack Grealish has been fouled.

  • Sam Dymond

    ENGLAND 2-0 ICELAND

    72. At least referee Fabio Verissimo is keeping us on our toes.

    The Portugues official can't wait to whip his yellow card out again after Arnason boots over Grealish.

  • Sam Dymond

    ENGLAND 2-0 ICELAND

    69. After a really intriguing and exciting 20-minute spell during the first half, this game has now slowed down to the international snoozefest that many feared.

    In fairness, the ten men of Iceland are defending deep and very well. If there was something riding on this game, perhaps it would feel different.

    But there isn't and it doesn't.

    ENGLAND 2-0 ICELAND

    67. Jordan Pickford scampers off his line to claim a bouncing ball.

    The goalkeeper has had very little to concern himself with tonight which is probably best for everyone, not least the Everton man.

  • Sam Dymond

    ENGLAND 2-0 ICELAND

    64. England make a double substitution as Tyrone Mings and Harry Winks replace Kyle Walker and Mason Mount.

    Moments earlier, Iceland had made a change of their own with Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson coming on for Runar Mar Sigurjonsson.
