Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane & Marcus Rashford send England to seventh heaven! Winners & losers as Three Lions blow North Macedonia away

In Harry Kane, England have always had one world-class goalscorer in their frontline. On Monday night, they showed that they might just have three. Kane, Saka and Marcus Rashford all scored, combining for six of seven England goals as the Three Lions battered North Macedonia to take a huge stride towards Euro 2024 qualification.

Inevitably, Kane was on the board first, finishing a neat England move down the right. But the other two took over soon after. Saka smashed one into the roof of the net from a tight angle; Rashford, not to be outdone, responded by tucking one into an empty net.

Saka went on to bag two more to complete a first career hat-trick, including a sublime effort for his brace, while Kane converted from the spot to complete a 7-0 battering.

There were other things to catch the eye on Monday night, too. Trent Alexander-Arnold once again starred in centre-midfield, while a 33-year-old Kyle Walker still sprinted up-and-down the right wing with his usual gusto. And there were perhaps some opportunities missed, with previous starters and hopeful upstarts left on the bench.

Still, the attacking trio was magnificent, and the Three Lions never really looked troubled. To think that Gareth Southgate's England used to be too defensive.
