Moment fire breaks out at Andorra stadium during live TV report

A step closer to Qatar, without having to break into a sprint.

On an artificial pitch, England played out another win that could barely be called a real football match.

The only significance of this 5-0 win away to Andorra was the first international goals for Ben Chilwell and Jack Grealish, who will at least have something to remember from a match most people will immediately forget.

Perhaps the most accurate description of this game was that it was mostly a pleasant stroll through Pyrenean hills for the superb Phil Foden.

The playmaker both decorated the game and decided it, since it was his supreme passes that set up the first two goals that settled this game.

Andorra vs England live: Three Lions look to take another step to World Cup 2022

Gareth Southgate and his Three Lions return to action and will seek a return to winning ways too, as they face Andorra just a month or so after beating the same opponents 4-0 at home. Patience and probing is likely to be the story of the early part of the game once more, with the hosts this time looking to frustrate their opponents for even longer than they did at Wembley.

A win will leave England a maximum of six points from qualifying for Qatar 2022 and possibly even fewer, depending on results elsewhere.

Different names in the line-up will be expected as Southgate gives opportunities to fringe players, while Kieran Trippier is set to captain England.
