Paul Robinson, Michael Carrick and Aaron Lennon all got a piece of the action as England ran out 6-0 winners over Jamaica on Saturday afternoon.

In England's final World Cup preparation fixture at Old Trafford, Robbo was on from the start and forced to make one crucial save before being replaced by David James for the second half.

Michael and Aaron both took to the stage of Sven Goran Eriksson's last game in charge of the national team on English soil after 67 minutes in place of Frank Lampard and David Beckham.

In what was something of a stroll in the sun for England, Lampard opened the scoring and this was quickly followed by an own goal. A Michael Owen strike and a Peter Crouch hat-trick completed a satisfying afternoon ahead of the serious business which begins next Saturday.
