3 things we learned from Netherlands vs England

England, who had not won in Amsterdam since 1969, now have one more friendly against Italy on Tuesday before Southgate finalises his squad for Russian Federation.

It was certainly a pleasure for England manager Southgate to see Manchester United's talented 25-year-old transfer the form that has illuminated parts of the season at Old Trafford on to the global stage.

Kane, before this fixture, has scored seven of England's previous 14 goals and their results coming into this game had been two goalless draws against Germany and Brazil.

England manager Gareth Southgate was disappointed to hear about fan trouble after his players won with "pride and some style" in Holland.

Some of those inside the ground also booed the Dutch national anthem and Southgate expressed his disappointment at the latest episode of England fans embarrassing the country away from home.

And the England manager revealed that he had made a decision to play Walker in the role after seeing him impress in City's defence this season.

This was England's first win in Amsterdam since 1969.

"I'm pleased for Jesse, with everything that's been happening to him", Wright said.

Russian Federation chose to expel the British diplomats in a tit-for-tat response to the UK's expulsion of 23 of its diplomats. A senior Russian diplomat has dismissed British accusations against Moscow over the poisoning of an ex-spy as "jabber".

"And actually as well as his pace being a tremendous asset to the defence, if you watch City play it's kind of where he ends up now anyway".

Kane may still be on course to claim the armband - but Southgate clearly has no worries about Henderson's ability to deal with the job of leading England.

Meanwhile, former Southampton and Everton manager Koeman said: "Defensively we played quite well, but didn't create many chances".

A strike from Jesse Lingard in the 59th minute ensured the victory went to the Three Lions who were largely dominant in the contest.

"The defenders and goalkeeper are all capable of using the ball well".

"I thought we showed really good play up until that last final finish and final ball".

"The back three were excellent and the goalkeeper too, the way they were able to play from the back, they played with real composure, and played with intelligence too'".

"The number of arrests of England supporters has now climbed to close to 90", the Amsterdam police said in a tweet. We are going to have to get used to them taking risks in that area of the pitch, because that's the way we want to play.
