Belarus 1-3 England Highlights

Wayne Rooney scored twice as England took a giant stride towards World Cup qualification by beating Belarus to make it maximum points from four games.

Steven Gerrard gave England the lead from 30 yards after 11 minutes, but Pavel Sitko headed a deserved leveller for Belarus before the break.

Rooney turned in a cross from Emile Heskey five minutes after the break.

And he lifted home a superb third from Gerrard’s pass 16 minutes from time to give coach Fabio Capello another win.

It gives England a perfect record of 12 points so far, with Capello’s huge reputation bolstered further by two convincing away wins against dangerous opposition in Croatia and Belarus.
