    FT: Albania 0-2 England. Job done for England. That was not easy, with Albania defending in numbers and the pitch holding the ball up, but the visitors were clinical when presented with openings to make it two wins from two in World Cup qualification Group I. Poland up next in Wednesday. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye.

    Dropped points have never looked likely, but England have really had to dig in here. Impressive.

    Nice spell of possession for Albania, who still have hope, however slim, of getting something from this game.

    Nervy moment at the back for England as Pope and Maguire both deal with an in-swinging cross from the right. Maguire gets his head to the ball first but takes a clattering from Pope moments later.

    Albania are in fact enjoying some rare possesion right now.

    England remain in the hunt for more here. Albania seem to have given up the ghost.

    MISS! Kane gets up to meet a Ward-Prowse cross, loops a header towards goal, Sterling misses his volley completely, but hooks the bouncing ball back across goal, Kane slides in, but is penalised, and booked, for a slide.

    Now can England go on to grab another here? They have been clinical when presented with their few chances.

    Sterling makes the interception, he feeds Kane, who in turn passes across for Mount, the Chelsea forward is clean through, opens his body up and slots home with ease.
