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.

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
