Okay - 30 minutes to go here at Wembley until kick-off. Can Rooney, Kane and Vardy in the same team work?

48 min: Some decent possession play from Portugal with Nani, in his roel as captain tonight, getting involved. Bit of a snorefest though.

52 min: England finally get the ball back and unlike Portugal actually do something with it. Good pull-back from Rose which ends with Milner having a shot from range. It's blocked though.

54 min: Danilo goes down clutching his face after a coming together with Vardy. Why? That's anyone's guess. The Leicester striker was nowhere near his face.

66 min: Alli has it in the back of the net - but well after the referee had blown for a free-kick. Vardy goes off for Sterling. Milner off for Wilshere.

69 min: England immediately looking a little more dangerous after those changes with Alli nearly putting Rooney through on goal.

72 min: Rooney appears to have shifted to the left which is allowing Kane to come more central. Alli has shifted more central as well allowing him and Kane to try and replicate what they do for Spurs on the international stage. Renato Sanches is on for Portugal.

Walker in action.

74 min: Sanches is already causing England pproblems. It took Rooney, Sterling and Rose combined to bring him down there.
