Rooney and Hodgson Hail “Frightening” England And “Fairytale” Kane Debut

England Manager Roy Hodgson was visibly delighted with his team’s impressive performance against Lithuania last night. His side registered a superb 4-0 win at Wembley and have now won five games in a row in the qualification of the Euro Championships in 2016. Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was expected to make his debut and while he didn’t start the game, when he did come on as a substitute he made an instant impact. Only 78 seconds into his debut and with only his third touch, Kane nodded home from Raheem Sterling’s cross. It was the third fastest goal by an English debutant behind Bill Nicholson in 1951 and John Cook in 1919.

England Vs Lithuania Wembley, London March 27th, 2015, 20:45 GMT ********** After a thoroughly underwhelming performance at last year’s FIFA World Cup, England have seemingly settled down into a rhythm and are playing quite well under Roy Hodgson. The Three Lions have won all four games that they have played in the Euro qualifiers and have played with style and panache. Style and panache aren’t usually things that one associates with an England team, so manager Roy Hodgson needs to be given some credit for instilling belief into this young English side.
