Harry Kane started the game as a main striker and he made an impressive start, as he tried to beat the keeper three times in the opening quarter of Monday’s game.

England has tried their best to score an opening goal, but they couldn’t find the way to the net. They dominated the game and but their first goal came after 30 minutes, when 21-year-old Everton playmaker Ross Barkley unleashed a perfect shot and the ball went to the net. A few minutes later, England doubled their lead, when Adam Lallana delivered a perfect pass to Harry Kane, who decided to shoot from a close range and his effort beat Lithuanian goalkeeper at his near post.

In the second half, England decided to slow the things down, as Roy Hodgson decided to make some substitutions to calm the game. He chose Danny Ings, Dele Alli and Andros Townsend to take a part of the game, but it was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who most caught the eye after the break. The Arsenal youngster scored England’s third goal after a great passing game with Kyle Walker just 30 minutes before the end of the match.

England should have scored at least five or six goals in the second half, but they wasted too many chances in front of goal. However, the Lithuanian goalkeeper played a great game and he managed to protect his team from conceding more goals. 

Euro 2016 in France will be a huge challenge for England as they always fail to impress at the biggest international tournaments. But they believe that this time will be much different and their team will achieve something big at this European soccer tournament.
