Bukayo Saka made a perfect debut in his first senior game for England who thrashed Wales 3-0 in an international friendly match on Thursday.

Everton in-form striker Dominic Calvert-Lewis also marked his England debut with a goal as he rose to head his 10th goal of the season.

England doubled their lead through Conor Coady who turned in 
Kieran Trippier free-kick for his first international goal, eight minutes after halftime.

And in the 63rd minute Danny Ings, making his first start showed superb athleticism to add a third in the 63rd minutre with a perfectly-executed overhead kick after Tyrone Mings had headed down a Kalvin Phillips corner.

Calvert-Lewin is the first Everton striker to score for England since Wayne Rooney (vs Macedonia) in 2003.

He is the first Everton striker to score for England at Wembley since Gary Lineker in October 1985 vs Turkey.
