Gareth Southgate's verdict on Sterling's outstanding performance. "Raheem was great, electric all night. He watched it all week in training, involved in four of the goals, and I'm really happy for him. It's a special night for him. We have exciting wide players, you have also seen both young boys. Marcus Rashford can play it. We have others. This gives us good offensive players in the field, and also higher on the field. Raheem really matured as a footballer and player. He is hungry for goals and is determined to enter the right areas of the field. The quality of his finish, he just hits things instinctively and do not think too much about things. There was very good football sometimes. "
Raheem Sterling, the match ball under the arm, speaks! "It was a great team performance. I was happy to help the team and, more importantly, we won the victory. I am just confident in myself, trying to get in and take pictures, without worrying about anything. I just come with that. The first goal was a pleasure to get back on my feet. "
Captain Harry Kane adds: "It was a brilliant team performance. Everyone worked hard and in a hurry. We take this opportunity, we are confident of last summer and the League of Nations. So we feel good. Everyone is speaking, we have young and hungry players. "
Five goals against one of the big European championships. A hat-trick for Raheem Sterling. Extremely promising presentations by Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ben Chilwell and Declan Rice. It's a perfect start for the qualifying campaign for Euro 2020 in England. It's not on the Czech side, that's for sure, but England can not do anything about it. In the other Group A match, Bulgaria and Montenegro drew 1-1, so England is proudly at the top of the table. A nice evening of work.
FULL TIME: England 5-0 Czech Republic
What about Raheem Sterling, huh. Through a hat trick of the Manchester City flying winger, the qualifying campaign for England at Euro 2020 is now offered to a flyer. Next step: Montenegro Monday night!
90 min: Fortunately for England, the youngster is soon up. Fortunately for the Czechs, there will only be two minutes of extra time.
89 min: Hudso-Odoi is down after hitting Vydra. He seems to have fallen awkwardly on his side, in the area where he clings.
87 min: Maguire takes a crop shot to hit the ball and hits Vydra's shin as a result. This is neither particularly delicate nor clever, and the Burnley striker will have suffered a lot. It is good to continue, however.
86 min: The noise at Wembley is quite something. And no wonder. The 82,575 bettors have benefited from an excellent performance from England, especially the magnificent Raheem Sterling.
GOAL! England 5-0 Czech Republic (Kalas og 84)
Sancho turns in the middle of the field and heads for the goal. He sends a wide pass to the left to Hudson-Odoi, who dribbles powerfully in the area, opens his body and low and hard side feet in the lower right. Pavlenka does well to get his hands on the shot, but can not do anything because he bounces back to Kalamity Kalas, who can not get out of the way and clumsily pulls down on the right. Oh dear.
82 min: Beep beep! Here is Skoda who takes the place of Schick.
81 min: Soucek, just to the right of the England penalty area, slips a pass inside for Vydra, who gets his shot at eight meters. The ball illuminates the right pole. He should have scored.
80 min: Soucek tries to bounce the Czechs on the right flank, but his flank attack is poorly controlled by Vydra and England clears his lines.
78 min: The party atmosphere at Wembley. Scdhick and Soucek causing some problems left to Walker and Maguire do not change that.
76 min: Kane turns from the left and tries to send a curler down right. Pavlenka does very well to hold a strong arm and save money. "There is no shame in losing heavily away from home to the benefit of a team that is progressing in the FIFA world rankings, is there?", Asked Simon. McMahon, who might or might not be referring to this:
74 min: Schick has a shot away. It is also a crier, a few inches from the left post. Pickford could not do it.
72 min: More space for Chilwell at the bottom left. Barkley meets his center, but his header appears in all directions. The Czechs just want to get out of here.
70 min: OK, so goal of the hat trick could to be eliminated from Sterling because I'm not 100% sure that his shot was squared, since he was placed right. However, I am not sure that is not the case either, and who could deny the triplet of England for this truly world – class winger? It's Sterling! And this is his last act of the evening as he gives way to Hudson-Odoi.
GOAL! England 4-0 Czech Republic (Sterling 68)
Sterling is so hot right now. He completes his hat trick by cutting from the left and fetching a curler at the top right. The ball comes out of Celustka's back on the top left, in front of a Pavlenka on the left foot!
67 min: Darida is coming for Masopust. Lukas. What the Czechs would give for a modern day Josef right now.
66 min: Sancho shoots a smart ball inside to free Barkley in the box. The center of Barkley is again inaccurate, and visitors can make the return. The Czechs are now in damage-reduction mode. England seems dangerous again in attack after its start of stuttering in the second half.
64 min: Supporters of the Republic of Ireland look away: here is Declan Rice dressed in England. He comes for Alli, recently returned from injury, during his race.
GOAL! England 3-0 Czech Republic (Sterling 62)
Alli slips a pass into the right inside channel for Sterling. Novak slips in and, again, luck is not with him. His clear hook bounces off Kalas and returns to the path of Sterling, who turns his back on the goal. Sterling takes a touch, cheats Celustka by turning around and curls a delicious shot at the top left in front of a helpless Pavlenka! What a beautiful finish for this sensational player!
61 min: It's still a little disconnected. But out of the absurd madness of maniac pinball …
59 min: Alli removes Darida on the left and returns Sterling. Sterling moves the ball towards Kane on the overlap. Kane pulls one back for Sancho, who can not connect properly. But the ball breaks Novak, then slips on Alli and the bar six yards! Alli is about to score one of the wildest goals you've ever seen there.
57 min: Henderson is trying to revive England with a burst on the left. But he has to turn around. The home team has not been half as dominant since the recovery.
55 min: Space for Chilwell in the lower left. His center confuses Kalas and Celustka, whose crush ends almost with the ball in the right of their own net. Pavlenka does extremely well to keep the ball off the line and away from danger.
53 min: Pickford tries to launch an instant counter and is closed by Schick, who is reserved for his intervention.
52 min: And again, they are almost paying England for what is now officially a Slow Start in the second half. A corner on the right meets Pavelka at eight meters. England is lucky. Pavelka's first shot is weak and straight to Pickford.
51 min: A free kick for the Czechs on the right. It is flashed in the box. Soucek the encounter with a diving head, at the same level as the right post, at 12 yards. He smiled at Pickford, the bullet running an inch wide off the left post. So close to bring back the Czechs in the match!
49 min: Pavelka is going to the goal from 25 meters. This is not good. England faces Sancho who, from a position to the right of the central circle, almost leaves Barkley through the left inner canal. His pass escapes Barkley … as well as Kalas, who launches in the air horizontally and attempts an absurd release. Was he trying on a Keith Houchen style header or a René Higuita scorpion kick? It could have been one or the other. Or both. In any case, the ball misses him completely. The Czechs are clear.
48 min: But finally, they move. Kane, once again back from the bottom, stitches a pass to the right to free Barkley in space. The resulting cross is not very cop, but it already looks a lot like the same thing since England continues to dominate possession of the ball.
We are leaving again! England starts the second half. The Czech Republic made a change by replacing Jankto with Matěj Vydra of Burnley.
Half-time animation: That's fine for England at Wembley; in Brussels, not so much. The incomparable report of Marina Hyde.
HALF TIME: England 2-0 Czech Republic
This is the last act of half. The teams went to the locker room, the Czechs feeling a little hurt by the awarding of the penalty, which was at least painful to generous – was Sterling going to get the ball, and was he really unfairly blocked? – Although you can plead for or against. In both cases, England deserves full advantage at half-time. They were much better.
GOAL! England 2-0 Czech Republic (Kane 45 + 2 pen)
What price a Panenka against the Czechs? That would be cute, is not it? But Kane opts for power instead. Which is just as good, because his shot on the left side of the goal is close enough for Pavlenka to touch the ball. Kane gave him a real belt, however, the keeper's hand turns around and the ball reaches its destination.
Penalty for England!
45 min +1: Sterling is looking to dribble into the Czech zone, chasing a nice Alli steering wheel to the left inside. Kaderabek and Kalas close the door by meeting. But the referee said he blocked Sterling, who was trying to sneak in the center, unfairly! Did he meet the defenders or did they send him? Hmm. Kaderabek is booked, anyway.
45 min: Kane, at the edge of the Czech box, turns around and tries an ambitious throw on the top left. The ball deviates for a corner, which is easily cleared. "This is the first time anyone calls Raheem Sterling's leg telescopic," notes Dan C, a tape measure hanging on his shoulders.
43 min: Both teams seem happy enough to settle for a score of 1-0 at halftime. Because there is not much going on.
41 min: Darida is doing well in the right inner channel and is preparing to shoot when Alli pulls the ball away from him to push him into a corner. The referee whistles a foul on the play piece when Henderson is manhandled by Schick.
39 min: And here's another great contribution from Sancho, who Garrinc makes his way inside to win a corner. The Czechs are everywhere in the store while defending the game stopped, Kane seeing a clear snapshot in the left corner of the penalty area, Barkley collapsing almost to the left when England returns. The bullet was finally hacked.
