West Ham’s Ravel Morrison opened the scoring and added a second with a solo finish in the second half, while there were also strikes for Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse and West Brom’s Saido Berahino (two).

Ward-Prowse also hit the post in the second half, while England’s tendency to overplay at times scuppered what could have been a far more handsome scoreline.

Photograper Steve Waller attended the game caught the best of the match action.
