England and Scotland were both looking to record their first victory in the tournament against each other last night.
As expected the game started off very physical, with tough challenges flying from both teams. Sterling showed within the first 20 minutes that his frightening pace would cause problems for Scotlands back line. Collecting the ball from his own half, Sterling gliding all the way to to the opposition box before blasting the ball just wide.
It was The Tartan Terriers though that shocked the English on the 37th minute. After an initial shot was closed down , the English defence could not clear the ball quick enough and Forest seized the moment to stick the ball in the back of the net. They say the worst time to concede is after you just score, and that proved to be true here as Sancho marched with the ball to get of a beautifully precise shot, to draw the game going into halftime.
On the restart the game was in the balance, that was until the ball fell to Sterling, who used that blistering pace again to surge passed a whole collection of players and put England ahead. What followed was nothing short of an onslaught. Sterling added another three goals while Harry Kane also got off the mark. McKenna for Scotland made it a definite night to forget by getting sent off for a second bookable offence.
England will be delighted with the goals scored by their three lions and the performance overall.
