Fraser Forster - A missed chance for Hodgson

And wouldn't you think a game against the lowest-ranked international team in the WORLD (at Wembley) was the perfect opportunity for Roy Hodgson to boost his international claims?

Not so! The England boss went for tried and tested Joe Hart and what did we learn? NOTHING!

Forster was the only England player not given a game in the World Cup in Brazil, and he must be wondering what he has to do to impress the under-fire coach.

At 5-0 win does not prove anything, but Hodgson will still be happy to make it two wins from two in the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

Wayne Rooney edged one goal closer to Sir Bobby Charlton's record as England coasted past 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 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.

Danny Welbeck and Andros Townsend found the net in the second half and Alessandro Della Valle also scored an own goal to round off the win.
