Harry Winks and Mason Mount scored their first senior international goals as England rounded off Euro 2020 qualifying with a 4-0 victory in Kosovo, where Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford were also among the goals.
Tottenham’s Winks provided the finish to a rare moment of first-half quality, although his combination with Declan Rice and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in midfield did not always deliver the cohesion England need in their engine room.
Kane added a second 11 minutes from time and substitute Rashford swept home four minutes later.
Mount’s late strike added gloss to the scoreline but Bernard Challandes’ impressive Kosovo side can still reach the European Championship via a play-off place secured by virtue of their Nations League performance.
After matching England for long spells at Stadiumi Fadil Vokrri they will be confident of making it count.
