🦁 Smith Rowe's debut by numbers against San Marino 

Emile Smith-Rowe made his England debut on Monday against San Marino in a World Cup Qualifier match. 

The Arsenal youngster was Gareth Southgate's latest squad and was handed his debut against minnow with England needing only a single point to make it in the World Cup finals in Qatar next year. 

The 21-year-old assisted the fourth goal for Harry Kane before scoring the seventh goal as England beat San Marino 11-0. 

Southgate comments 

"I thought Emile has given a good account all week. His tight control is exceptional and he has to continue what he is doing. We finished with a young side tonight."
