The most remarkable statistic attached to this victory is that England, for all their traumas and intermittent crises, have now gone 34 matches since they experienced defeat in a qualifying match. The last occasion was October 2009 when Fabio Capello’s team went down 1-0 to Ukraine in Dnipropetrovsk and, to put it into context, there have been three different full-time managers since then.
