  • Hello, and it's a warm welcome from Wembley. Typically, we've had transport issues getting here, so let's not hang around. Here's the teams...

  • Well, not much that we didn't expect. England look more than comfortable, Moldova haven't had a shot on target, let alone look threatening at all. The only downside of that half for Roy Hodgson is the yellow card picked up by Welbeck has ruled him out of Tuesday's match against Ukraine, and with Hodgson's striker options already depleted, there now seems even more emphasis on Daniel Sturridge to be fit for the match in Kiev.

  • Right then, I've had my half-time samosa's (very enjoyable, by the way) and the teams are back out. One change for England, as Leighton Baines is on for Ashley Cole, who would've missed the trip to Ukraine had he picked up a yellow card.

  • 46 mins: England start the second half in control as they were in the first. Walcott looks to find Welbeck from the right but it's out for a throw. Wilshere then attempts to set his Arsenal team-mate away but it's cleared (just) by Golovatenco, as the winger goes tumbling to the floor in the process.

  • 48 mins: Moldova are really struggling to hold onto the ball, and you have to think it's a case of how many for England. A sloppy pass from Lampard just wakes them up though.

  • 49 mins: Walcott nearly finds Lambert on the edge of the area, but the move breaks down as the striker readjusts his body to shoot. GOAL FOR ENGLAND!!!
