Gareth Southgate and co. of course marked their return to action a short time ago.

On the back of a 5-0 drubbing of Albania last time out, the Three Lions made the trip to minnows San Marino, aware that another 3-point haul would ensure their place at next year’s World Cup.

Taking to his official Twitter account, the midfielder tonight posted a photo of himself celebrating, accompanied by a message to ex-Chelsea and current AS Roma hitman Tammy Abraham, who teed up Smith Rowe’s first international goal:
