  • "Sterling's shot, after a corner broke to him, was charged down with an arm by Sverrir Ingi Ingason, whose anguish at conceding the spot-kick was compounded when he was given a second yellow card for handball. Sterling took the responsibility and out-foxed Hannes Thor Halldórsson with a low kick down the middle." Raheem Sterling13th of 13 goals, 90' +1 (90:09) (pen)

Notes

  • Covid-19England's first game for 10 months - which is the longest period without a game in peacetime since 1914 - because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The match is, along with most worldwide sporting events, played behind closed doors.
  • Goal DisallowedKane has a legitimate goal ruled out for offside after 6 minutes. There is no VAR.
  • Walker Red CardWalker is dismissed for two cautionable offences. Late tackles on Gudmundsson on 33 minutes and Traustason on 70 minutes.
  • Ingason Red CardIngason's handball for the penalty is his second yellow. He had been booked in the first half for a foul on Trippier.
  • Missed PenaltyExactly one minute after England score their penalty, Holmbert Fridjónsson is pushed in the back by Joe Gomez to concede one. However, Birkir Bjarnason balloons the ball over the bar.
  • Penalty: Raheem Sterling1st scored from 1 taken (100.0%). England's 126th overall. Ingason handballs in the area. Sterling steps up and hits the penalty down the middle.
