Steven Gerrard praised the superb four-goal performance of Zlatan Ibrahmovic, who outshone the England captain on his 100th appearance for his country.
"I think his [Ibramhimovic] performance was world class, and he's scored one of the best goals I've ever seen live."
The midfielder thought England were in the game prior to a string of changes made by Roy Hodgson.
"I think there were a lot of positives out there for us. There were a lot of young boys out there, and they will learn something from this," Gerrard explained.
"I think we were very comfortable until we started making changes."
