Southgate: We could have made it easier for ourselves

England manager Gareth Southgate feels his team should have beaten Lithuania with greater ease.

Southgate did take time to praise goalscorer Jermain Defoe and centre-back Michael Keane, who were both impressive in the victory.

We would've liked a bit more. I thought we moved the ball a little too slowly.

There are times when you know you're going to win the game and we perhaps don't hit the levels that we hit against Germany.

– Gareth Southgate

Match report and highlights: England 2-0 Lithuania

Jermain Defoe returned with a bang as England overcame Lithuania, netting his first international goal in four years as Gareth Southgate's men secured a predictably comfortable World Cup qualification win.

Devastated to have been overlooked for the 2014 World Cup months after heading to Major League Soccer, few expected the 34-year-old to ever don the Three Lions again.
