England 3-0 Republic of Ireland: 5 points while three Lions lead...

England were just too good for the Republic of Ireland when Gareth Southgate’s men recorded a comfortable 3-0 win at Wembley.

The hosts took the lead in the 18th minute when Harry Maguire walked home from Harry Wink’s delicious flank.

Shortly after half an hour it was 2-0 when Jadon Sancho cut from the left to the inside and shot a low shot into the lower right corner.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his second goal in England when he moved off ten minutes after the break to round the goal on a satisfactory night for the home team.

The three Lions are next in action when they face Belgium in the Nations League on Sunday, while Ireland face Wales on the same day.

Here are five key points from England’s convincing win …

The redemption of Maguire continues

What a difference a month can make.

Maguire’s last appearance in an English shirt ended prematurely after just 31 minutes when the Manchester United defender was sent off in their 1-0 loss to Denmark in October.

It was a blatant conclusion for the 27-year-old, which was so bad that there were suggestions to take a break from football to clear his mind after his turbulent time off the field.

To his eternal credit, Maguire has since fought his way back from that troubled period and his performances for United have improved significantly lately.

Receiving his country’s armband for the first time tonight, he put in a safe performance with a great header to give his team the lead and a decent display on the back showing all of his best qualities.

We hope that Maguire has now left his nightmare a few months behind and will continue his redemption.

Why not Grealish AND Mount?

Much of the preparation for the game revolved around who would be selected from Jack Grealish or Mason Mount on the grid.

In the end, both players made the cut at Southgates 11, with Grealish far out and Mount taking the central position in the 3-4-3 formation.

Both looked consistently bright, with Grealish constantly threatening the flanks and scoring England’s second goal and Mount being in good possession of the ball and dangerous with set pieces.

In games against inferior opponents there is no reason the two cannot play on the same team and they offer plenty of food for thought in the future, especially if England have to tear down a stubborn defense.

Mings shines on and off the field

Tyrone Mings advocated the way he dealt with the press in the fallout on Greg Clarke’s resignation as FA chairman Tuesday.

But he let his football do the talking tonight, and the Aston Villa man was again wearing an English shirt perfectly.

While not particularly affected by a toothless Irish attack, he was in possession of the ball and noisy at giving orders to his teammates.

Joe Gomez’s injury means Mings may have more minutes in an English shirt.

And how things play out for him on and off the pitch, it would be no surprise if Mings becomes a first choice at the center of defense when the euros roll in next summer.

Calvert-Lewin takes lessons from Kane

Whisper it softly … but Calvert-Lewin looks more and more like Harry Kane every day.

The Everton striker was back to a constant handful tonight and when Bukayo Saka was brought into the box, he made it clear to everyone that he would be the man to take the penalty.

Even his technique for the penalty kick was similar to Kane, with a little stutter before slamming her into the top corner to make the 3-0.

It’s easy to see that Kane was a late bloomer and only achieved his clinical best after loan spells in the lower levels – similar to Calvert-Lewin.

Could he and Calvert-Lewin, now 23 years old, follow in the footsteps of the Tottenham man in the form of his life?

Bellingham bows

Jude Bellingham was the third youngest man to ever play for England when he got off the bench with 20 minutes left.

At just 17 years and 137 days, the Dortmund star has a pretty exciting career ahead of him, and he certainly didn’t seem overwhelmed by the occasion tonight.

Bellingham slipped into midfield, looking confident with the ball at his feet. He couldn’t have asked for a more comfortable debut.

It would be fascinating to see Southgate give him a few more minutes against Belgium or Iceland, but even if he doesn’t, it will certainly only be the first of many, many caps for Bellingham.
