Goal! England 1-0 Russia (Dier 73)
The breakthrough! England win another free-kick just outside the 18-yard box in an area just to the right of centre. Kane stands over it, Dier behind him. The Tottenham striker runs past the ball and leaves it for his club team-mate, who takes a casual step up to the ball before sweeping it into the top-left corner.

Goal! England 1-1 Russia (Berezutski 90)

Well, that is a blow to the guts for Hodgson’s side. Schennikov floats a ball towards the back post, where the captain Berezutski is lurking behind Rose. He leaps above the England full-back and scruffily heads the ball up and over Hart into the far corner. Glushakov knocks it in at theback post but it looks to be Berezutski’s goal. Well, what a finish. A cruel one for England.

Full-time: England 1-1 Russia

That was a harsh lesson learned for England. Their weakness on high balls was exposed. To be fair, they hadn’t been so bad for most of the night but Rose was left isolated at a pivotal moment. Prior to the goal, England had looked pretty solid.

England vs Russia . Score: 1-1.
