Danny Welbeck: Scored twice for England

Danny Welbeck: Scored twice for England

Joe Hart: One nervous moment when he dribbled outside the box but hardly anything else to do. 6.

Kyle Walker: Set the tone with forceful attacking burst to create early chance. 7.

Ashley Cole (off 46): Usual effective performance going forward and little defending to do. Replaced at the break. 7.

Steven Gerrard: Broke a scoring duck of more than three years with brilliant low finish. 7.

Gary Cahill: Kept Moldova at bay with ease and found time to make a nuisance of himself at the other end 7.

Phil Jagielka: One of those nights when his job was to marshal rather than intervene. 6.

Theo Walcott: Took some rough treatment early on, which is what got Hodgson so wound up. His shot created Lambert goal. 7.

Frank Lampard: Cap number 99 for the 35-year-old and will probably reach three figures on Tuesday. Assist for Gerrard's opener. 6.

Danny Welbeck: A pair of excellent finishes to take his England tally to eight. Yellow card means he misses Kiev. 9.

Jack Wilshere(off 58): One mazy dribble and got clipped as well. Other than that, a quiet night for the Arsenal man. 7.

Rickie Lambert (off 70): Couple of early chances on first start before reaction finish. Then claimed two assists. 8.

Substitutes

Leighton Baines (on 46): World have been first cap as a Manchester United player had week turned out differently. Not much to do. 6.

Ross Barkley (on 58): Almost emulated Lambert by scoring on his debut. 7.

James Milner (on 70): Looks to be most likely replacement for Welbeck given 20-minute run-out on left side. 7.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
