Harry once again made an immediate impact off the bench as England stretched their record to eight wins in eight in qualifying for the Euro 2016 finals with a 2-0 victory.

The striker entered the fray for Jonjo Shelvey on 57 minutes and just 10 minutes later, scored his third goal in four senior England appearances.

He started and finished the move as well, initially making a run into the right channel, receiving the ball and picking out Ross Barkley. Rooney took over and rolled into Luke Shaw overlapping down the left. The full-back's cross picked out Harry who drilled home sweetly with his left foot from 16 yards.

With five minutes remaining, Rooney converted from the penalty spot to become England's all-time leading goalscorer and the first to hit 50 goals for the Three Lions.

Ryan Mason remained an unused substitute.
