Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady played a full 90 minutes yesterday for England.

The 28-year-old came into the side as one of many changes made by Gareth Southgate for the visit of minnows Andorra.

In the end, it was an easy victory for the Three Lions.

Jesse Lingard struck twice at Wembley, and Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka were also on target for a 4-0 win.

The result, which followed another 4-0 win over Hungary days prior, puts England in a commanding position in Group I of World Cup qualifying.

They’re now five wins from five, and five points ahead of second-placed Poland.

It was a nice night for Coady.

The star has been unable to play in front of fans since coming onto the scene with the senior side.

 

He did OK, but was rarely tested by Andorra.

Sky Sports awarded him a 6/10 for his performance, which was one point higher than Tyrone Mings.

It was good to see him given a run-out after playing a supportive role at Euro 2020.

Coady took to Instagram after the game to poke fun at the overhead kick he attempted at one point.

He captioned his post: “Professional night from the boys, some great goals and always an honour to play in this team … the less said about the last pic the better.”

The post prompted lots of comments, including from Aston Villa star Mings, with whom Coady is very close.

He replied: “3rd pic I think I’m saying ‘Con I swear to God if you try an overhead kick again we’re gonna fall out’.”
