Lingard gives England victory over the Netherlands

Gareth Southgate explains decision to pick Kyle Walker as part of England's back three

England, who had not won in Amsterdam since 1969, now have one more friendly against Italy on Tuesday before Southgate finalises his squad for Russian Federation.

Bas Dost and Memphis Depay had the best Dutch chances, with Dost heading over from close range in the first half and Depay shooting straight at Pickford at the end of the first half and again late in the second half from a free kick.

Southgate told Sky Sports News after the game that he is happy to see the Toffees goalkeeper transferring his ability to the national team.

But with England dominating against a poor Netherlands team, Southgate admitted after the game that the biggest plus from the victory was the enjoyment displayed by his players.

After all, if their children were still missing almost four years later, despite the global #bringbackourgirls campaign, what. When the Dapchi girls were Wednesday morning, the militants stayed to preach to the community for about 20 minutes.

The games before that had been a colourless 1-0 win in Lithuania courtesy of a Kane penalty and another one-goal win at Wembley against Slovenia with an injury-time strike from the Spurs forward.

Most of the action was at the other end, England retaining possession neatly only for much of their play to lack a final ball of outcome, although captain Jordan Henderson headed wide, while Raheem Sterling was thwarted by advancing goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet.

Zoet should have done better but that will not impact on Southgate's pleasure at what Lingard could offer in Russian Federation.

The England manager caused a stir before kick-off with his team selection, naming a line-up which left many wondering just how the visitors would line up in Amsterdam.

The QCEW is generally referred to as the "gold-standard" for job figures because it relies on data from 96 percent of employers. The state's labor force participation rate - the share of working age population employed and unemployed - was 65.4 percent.

Liverpool's Henderson is the other alternative and he put a series of below-par England displays behind him to excel in Amsterdam. Whether I'm captain or not I like to think I lead by example anyway.

"We played with a real energy and vibrancy".

"We are playing England and you see the difference in quality", Koeman said.

"Yes [it was a good night for Pickford] definitely", the manager said. "Our players have represented their country really well tonight, with pride and with some style, so anything else that takes away from that performance for them would be a great shame".

'Salah should snub Real & Barca and become a legend at Liverpool'
Creeping up the table, and doing fantastically in the Champions League. "He's only 25-years-old, he still has plenty of time". He said: " Mohamed Salah would be foolish to leave Liverpool right now, he's in a place which is the ideal fit for him".

England faced early disruption when Liverpool's Joe Gomez went off injured just minutes into the game, his place taken by Harry Maguire. We are going to have to get used to them taking risks in that area of the pitch, because that's the way we want to play.
