Rice, Mount and Foden all found the net for England as they finish their Nations League campaign on a high. Southgate will have just two more opportunities to take a look at his side before next summer's European Championships and so this match will at least keep a smile on his face for the time being.

  • End of 2nd Half
90+3'

FULL TIME: England 4-0 Iceland

90+2' 

This has been a positive evening for England. They have been comfortable throughout, never really looked like conceding never might losing, and some of the youngsters have shone.

90+1' 
90'

There will be three minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.

89' 

Foden is enjoying himself now, pulling out some tricks. The Manchester City midfielder must have seen what Grealish was doing in Belgium on Sunday and sought to replicate it.

Foden is such a talent. What a player England have got on their hands there. With all the talk of Grealish, it's important not to overlook what Foden brings to the table for the national team.

  • Phil Foden

The Manchester City midfielder picked up the ball 20 yards from goal and fired home a finish, giving the goalkeeper no chance. That might be the pick of the bunch from tonight.

83' 

Foden's name is the one on the score sheet, but it was Sancho who created the opening. The Borussia Dortmund showed great maturity to set up his teammate rather than take the shot himself.

One last effort! Kane knows he's been subbed off here shortly, so he takes a freekick on the edge of the opposition box, but his shot is straight into the Icelandic wall. Hasn't been his night.

71' 

It looks like Southgate might be readying more changes. There is activity in the stands where the subs are sitting. Might Sancho come on for the final 20 minutes or so?

70' 
69' 

While Southgate will be relatively pleased with the performance of his team this evening, he is surely a little disappointed they haven't made more of their man advantage since the red.

68' 

Once again, Grealish has arguably been the best player on the pitch for England. The Aston Villa man looks like making something happen almost every time he receives the ball.

67' 

Mount has become a favourite of Southgate's in recent international breaks. Not only can the Chelsea man be almost certain of his place in the Euros squad, he could be a starter.

61' 

Good pass into Grealish! The Aston Villa man was played down the channel and got the low pass into the middle. Kane was ready to finish, but Arnason makes the intervention.

60' 

Not far wide! A decent opportunity for Iceland against the run of play, with Arnason losing his man inside the area to get on the end of a corner kick delivery. He heads wide of the target, though.

58' 
57' 

One player who might not want to come off is Kane. He has looked desperate to find the back of the net this evening and has had good opportunities to do so. Strangely wasteful.

56' 

Southgate is surely starting to think about some changes now. This match is as good as done with Iceland now down to 10 men for the final 30 minutes. Time to rotate.

  • Birkir Már Sævarsson
    Red cardBirkir Már SævarssonIcelandSENT OFF! It's a second yellow card for Saevarsson and Iceland have been reduced to 10 men. That was harsh on the Icelandic defender. He pulled back on the arm of Saka.

Right on cue, the TV cameras show Bellingham watching the match from the stands. Could we see him at some point in this second? This might be a good time to introduce him.

Southgate has plenty of good options on the bench. Calvert-Lewin and Sancho just to name a couple. Bellingham could also come on for his competitive debut for England.

49' 

What changes will we see from Southgate in this second half and when will he make them? Keep in mind the majority of these players will be action again for their clubs this weekend.

48' 

England played some good stuff in the first half of the match, but they certainly could have made more of their opportunities. Kane in particular will be annoyed he hasn't scored.

  • End of 1st Half
45+1'

HALF TIME: England 2-0 Iceland. Goals from Rice and Mount have put the hosts in control at the break, but England created so many opportunities they could have been four or five up.

45'

There will be one minute of stoppage time played at the end of the first half.

44' 

Maguire is down after a tackle, but the Manchester United centre back should be fine to continue. Nonetheless, that looked to be a sore one. He got a stud right in the ankle.

43' 

That was a bit of a waste from England. They had a freekick in a dangerous position on the edge of the box, but rather than taking the shot they clipped pass over the top was tried.

42' 
41' 

A positive half from England so far. They have played some nice stuff and could have scored more than just twice. They have had the opportunities to be out of sight.

40'

Surprising he missed that! England win the ball high up the pitch, Kane cuts the ball on to his right foot 20 yards out, it was Kane sort of territory, but he sends his shot wide of the target. A let off for Icelandic.

39'

So close to a third! Kane dribbles along the edge of the Icelandic box and gets the reverse shot away on goal. The goalkeeper was beaten, but the ball flashes inches wide of the post.

38' 
37'

Crucial save! That shot from Foden after a charging run from deep was heading for the bottom corner of the Iceland net, but the fingertips of Kristinsson prevented it from ending up there.

36' 

Mount into the gloves! Rice got across his man at the near post, he heads it up into the air. Mount wins his header at the back post, but it's comfortably into the gloves of Kristinsson.

35' 

PICTURE: Mount scored England's second

Grealish looks like making something happen every time he gets on the ball. He certainly gives England something a little different in the attacking third of the pitch.

33' 
31' 

It's debateable just how much Southgate will learn from what is essentially a dead rubber match, but he will surely be pleased with what he has seen from his team so far.

30'

Foden should have scored! A good passing move from England sees a ball fizzed into Foden by Maguire, he got it out of his feet, but the City midfielder saw his effort saved from a tight angle.

29'

Kane shoots over the bar! The England forward received the ball with his back to goal, he turned his man and got the shot away, but he was leaning back and his effort flashes over.

26' 
25' 

England are in total control of this match now. They have a two-goal lead and have the freedom to knock the ball around the defence and midfield under very little pressure.

  • Mason Mount
    GoalMason MountEnglandGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! England 2 (24 mins - Mason Mount) Iceland 0. It's a second England and this time it's Mount who finds the back of the net!

All of a sudden it's as if a switch has flicked on in the minds of the England players. After a slightly slow start, they look like they might score at will right now. All over Iceland .

Big chance for Saka! Mount mishit his first shot, but played Grealish in behind. He squared the pass to Saka from the byline, but the Arsenal youngster's shot was saved by Kristinsoon!

Foden's delivery from the freekick into the Iceland box was a good one, Rice's header was a subtle one and the Three Lions take the lead on the 20-minute mark at Wembley. They are ahead.

Grealish is fouled on the edge of the box as he dribbles past a defender. There can't be as many players who are kicked up and down the pitch as much as the Villa midfielder is.

18' 

It hasn't been the most urgent of starts from England early on here. Southgate was keen to stress this is still an important game, but that hasn't come across so far.

17' 
16' 

Dier has more than his fair share of doubters as a defender, but both Jose Mourinho and Southgate have seen something in him as a centre back. Playing there again for England.

15' 

There has been a lot of focus on Grealish this past week, but with Rashford and Sterling in the squad, as they usually would be, the Villa man would surely slip down the pecking order.

England have already beaten Iceland once before in this UEFA Nations League group, with Sterling converting a late penalty winner in the away fixture. Same again this evening?

8'

Saka was offside! The pass was played through to the Arsenal youngster, he was in a good shooting position, but the flag was up. The save was made to stop Saka's shot anyway.

7' 
6' 

Pickford came off his line! The cross into the middle from the right wing by Sigurjonsson was a dangerous one, but the England goalkeeper came out to punch clear under pressure.

5' 

Mount shoots! Grealish gets the ball at his feet for the first time. He plays a pass around the corner for Mount, but the Chelsea midfielder's shot is blocked and the goalkeeper saves.

4' 

So it's a back three for England again tonight. With only two more games after this one to come before the Euros, it appears Southgate has already settled on sticking with this shape.

Iceland's relegation in the Nations League has already been confirmed, with England unable to qualify for next year's Finals, to be played after the Euros in the summer.

19:44 

Okay, here we go. We are about to get started at Wembley Stadium. Kick off is just moments away.

19:43 

After this, England have just two more competitive games before the Euros next summer. In that sense, this matters.

19:42 
19:41 

2016 saw Iceland dump England out of the European Championships, but a lot has happened since then. This England team has come a long way.

19:40 

Not long until kick off at Wembley Stadium. What sort of match should we expected? With very little on the line, is there a risk this could be a bit of a damp squib? Or might the two sides be liberated?

19:35 
19:30 

Of course, this match is a dead rubber for England. They can no longer qualify for the Finals of the UEFA Nations League, so this game is purely about preparing for the Euros next summer.

19:25 

Grealish was the most impressive England player on the pitch against Belgium on Sunday and he has kept his place in the team for this evening. Good signs for him ahead of the Euros!
