"Our first half, perhaps also the preparation was not so good, yesterday we couldn't train because it was raining and the pitch was not good enough to make us train". Normally, when you play for England, there's not an terrible lot of opportunity to produce a lot of saves.

The match is one of the friendly encounters ined up for the Eagles ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation later this month.

"I think the pace in the team, you can feel it, and that is why we had some problems in the first half."In the second half we corrected some mistakes and played a lot better". You have the opportunity to try so many players and formations, and we achieved our aim at Wembley. Southgate wants to play three central midfielders, with Raheem Sterling behind Harry Kane up front, which caused people to worry about how Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard would fit into the team.

Speaking on CNN , former USA attorney Pretty Bharara said: " It would be outrageous " for a sitting president to pardon himself . Those opinions, though, are not the same as a court decision, nor do they rule out a president being forced to testify.

"Second half they scored and it puts the pressure on but we got back into it an kept the ball and came back well".

It was a good test against a strong side - onto the next game. "It was great to score - it's always nice for a striker and now I'm looking forward to the game on Thursday".

"In the second half we were slow to start and it took us a little while to adjust to them changing shape".

Despite the numerous changes off the bench on either side, the tempo of the game never slowed down instead it went up a notch.
