England's Group H campaign began without a hitch, as two first-half goals from Frank Lampard helped them to a straightforward win against Moldova in Chisinau.

Roy Hodgson's men got a flying start thanks to Lampard's early penalty, before the Chelsea FC midfielder headed his second just before the half-hour. Jermain Defoe drove in a third on his 50th appearance soon after, with James Milner and Leighton Baines rounding off the win in the second period.
