England claimed a much needed victory as they stepped up their preparation for this summer’s World Cup in Russia with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands.

Jesse Lingard scored the only goal of the game in the second half as England beat the Dutch for the first time since 1996.

Gareth Southgate elected to name a much changed team with Kyle Walker starting as part of a back three, with Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling playing up front together.

England looked good in an attacking sense, causing their Dutch opponent’s a whole host of problems.

Despite only scoring the one goal, it was a reasonably comfortable night for Southgate’s men, who are looking to experiment with their squad ahead of the upcoming tournament.

They were largely untested defensively by Ronald Koeman’s side, who didn’t look particularly impressive in Amsterdam.

The Three Lions will now host Italy at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday night.
