Chelsea defender Gary Cahill (who has been the Blues captain for most times this season) scored for England in their 3-0 win against Scotland, and the defender was happy to have scored for the Three Lions.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve scored in an England shirt and it’s always a proud moment,” said Cahill, who has already scored three times for Chelsea this season.

“It felt good. It’s random that we got three headers but nevertheless it was three good goals.

“To be fair we’ve worked quite a lot this week on our final-third entry and being a bit more ruthless and I thought that came to light because our finishing was excellent.”

Next for England is a friendly match against Spain, and Cahill insisted that winning last night’s World Cup qualifier, which has given England a two-point advantage at the top of their group, was the key fixture.

“Ultimately it’s about the group and qualifying, getting points on the board. This was the important game,” he said.
