England and Kosovo contested quite a ridiculous Euro 2020 qualifier last night.
The Three Lions were expected to be comfortable winners but fell behind within 35 seconds at St Mary's.
Michael Keane's horrendous mistake led to Valon Berisha scoring very early on.
But England bounced back, netting five goals before half-time.

Incredibly, Kosovo hit back with two goals in the second half to pull the score back to 5-3. What a match.
Arguably, England were outplayed after the break and had they not had such a comfortable lead, they would have been in trouble.
Kosovo's second-half comeback could well have been inspired by manager Bernard Challandes, who was seen going mental in the tunnel at half-time. Check out the footage below:
As ITV Sport presenter Mark Pougatch says, the visiting boss was clearly upset with one of
England's goals, claiming it was offside and that the decision was 'terrible!'
But, as soon as he spots the camera, Challandes stops his rant and smiles at the camera.
Was it all a joke? We're not buying it, mate.
If that's how he acts in the tunnel, just imagine how crazy things get behind the doors of the dressing room. You certainly wouldn't want to be the man that costs Kosovo three points.
Luckily, those who played for the national side did themselves proud last night.
Despite a defeat, Kosovo are still third in their qualifying group behind England and the Czech Republic. They have a very good chance of reaching next summer's tournament.
With another victory, the Three Lions hold their perfect record in Group A and can qualify with three games to spare, should they beat the Czech Republic in Prague next month.News Now - Sport News
