Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker were in the 11 for the Group F encounter at Sportni Park in Ljubliana.

Dele had one of only three efforts on goal for the Three Lions, who had Joe Hart to thank in goal for the point, the Torino goalkeeper forced into three fine saves on the night. Dele eventually made way for Wayne Rooney on 73 minutes with Eric, Kyle and Danny all completing the 90 minutes.

England remain top of the group with group winners only guaranteed a place at Russia 2018.

First for Josh

Josh Onomah marked his first start for England Under-21s with his first goal at that level as the Young Lions beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 5-0 at Walsall FC.

The midfielder fired home from the edge of the box to make it 3-0, having earlier claimed the assist for the second, scored by Tammy Abraham after Josh's shot was parried. Abraham scored twice with further goals from John Swift and Duncan Watmore.

England had already qualified for next summer's UEFA Under-21 Championships before this final match and complete Group I unbeaten.

WCQ action

It wasn't the best of Tuesdays for Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen in World Cup qualifying.

Sonny's South Korea suffered a 1-0 loss at Iran in round three of Asian qualifying. Sonny played the full 90 minutes in Tehran. Iran top Group A and South Korea are down to third with only the top two from Group A and Group B going straight through to Russia.

Meanwhile, back in UEFA qualifying, Christian played a full shift as Denmark lost 1-0 against Montenegro. Denmark are four points off the pace already after three games with Montenegro and Poland joint-top of Group E.
