International round-up: Cresswell makes full England debut

Aaron Cresswell

West Ham left-back Aaron Cresswell made his full England debut as the Three Lions secured a 1-0 win over Lithuania on Sunday. 

The 27-year-old, prior to this match, had two England caps to his name but both of those outings came from the bench. 

With England earning their spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia thanks to a win over Slovenia on Thursday, Gareth Southgate gave Cresswell the chance to start his first international game against Lithuania, with victory secured thanks to a first-half Harry Kane penalty. 

Joe Hart, who played the full 90 minutes of Thursday's victory, was left on the bench for this match as Stoke City's Jack Butland was instead given more England experience.

The result gives England 26 points from their ten qualifying matches played in Group F.

Elsewhere Sead Haksabanovic came off the bench as Montenegro fell to a 4-2 defeat against Poland, despite a battling effort to equalise by the away side.

Finishes from Krzysztof Mączyński and Kamil Grosicki had put the home side ahead, with Montenegro bringing on Haksabanovic after 67 minutes. 

The 18-year-old was on the field as Nikola Vukčević and Stefan Mugoša fired the team level at the Stadion Narodowy, before goals from Robert Lewandowski and a Filip Stojković own-goal secured the win for Poland in the Group E qualifier.

Loaned winger Robert Snodgrass made an impact for Scotland, firing his international side's second goal home in the 2-2 draw with Slovenia.

Snodgrass, on loan at Aston Villa, was introduced on 79 minutes with the Scots 2-1 down, and hooked in an effort from Darren Fletcher's free-kick with three minutes to play.

However the draw was not enough to earn Scotland a play-off spot with Slovakia pipping Gordan Strachan's side to second in Group F, behind England, meaning they won't be at next summer's World Cup.
