Wayne Rooney edged one goal closer to Sir Bobby Charlton's record as England coasted past the clothes salesman, the factory worker and the bar owner from San Marino with a simple if not spectacular 5-0 win at Wembley.

The 55,990 fans in attendance started to get anxious when England failed to open the scoring in the first 20 minutes, but Roy Hodgson's team finally broke the deadlock through Phil Jagielka's third international goal.

England were sloppy and slow in attack at times in the first half, but Rooney managed to find the net just before the break with a well-taken penalty.

The strike moved the England captain on to 42 international goals - seven short of Charlton.

One can only imagine how many goals Rooney's idol would have bagged in his pomp against this shoddy San Marino team, who fielded just one professional in their starting XI.

Danny Welbeck, an own goal and Andros Townsend completed the scoring. Here, we take a look at how all the players rated...
