Adam Lallana was the creator as Daniel Sturridge planted this header past Kasper Schmeichel in the 82nd minute at Wembley.

Gareth Bale, meanwhile, brought his Real Madrid form into Wales’ friendly with Iceland. The former Spurs man cut in from the right, shrugging off a rugby-style tackle before slotting home…
