Michael Keane played the full 90 minutes in Vilnius this evening as England edged Lithuania 1-0 to round out their World Cup qualifying campaign.

The defender was named in the starting XI while his Everton team-mate Jordan Pickford watched on from the bench but he almost made headlines for the wrong reasons.

Keane inadvertently steered the ball towards his own goal in the second half and had to be rescued by starting goalkeeper Jack Butland who ensured the clean sheet was preserved.

Harry Kane's penalty proved to be the difference following an England performance that has once again attracted criticism but they easily topped Group F to book their place in next summers Finals.
