Jack Grealish scores first England goal after Sam Johnstone's incredible throw vs Andorra

Sam Johnstone's assist for Jack Grealish's goal was outstanding

England comfortably beat Andorra on Saturday evening.

There were doubts if the game would go ahead after a fire broke out at the Estadio Nacional de Andorra on Friday afternoon.

But the game got the all-clear and the Three Lions showed their dominance in a 5-0 victory.

Ben Chilwell and Bukayo Saka gave England a two-goal lead going into half-time.

Goals from Tammy Abraham, James Ward-Prowse meant England led 4-0 with 10 minutes remaining.

Jack Grealish then rounded out the scoring after a quite sensational assist from Sam Johnstone.


The West Brom goalkeeper, making his third appearance for his country, collected a long ball into the box in the 86th minute.

Instead of holding on to the ball and seeing out the victory, Johnstone saw the run of Grealish and launched a quite astonishing throw which found him in Andorra’s half.

Grealish still had some work to do and he managed to find the corner and score his first England goal.

England’s defenders, realising just how ridiculous Johnstone’s throw was, immediately ran to him to celebrate.

Speaking to ITV about the assist after the game, Gareth Southgate said: “A very bright piece of play. I thought he made a good save from the chance that was offside as well. There were nice moments there.”

He continued: “For Chilly to get a goal after such a tough time in the summer with us… really pleased for him.

“And of course Jack’s [Grealish] first goal as well, Prowsey [James Ward-Prowse], Bukayo [Saka]… they are all players that havent’ scored very often for England so a very special moment for all of them.”

England have now accumulated 19 points from their first seven World Cup qualifying games.

A victory against Hungary on Tuesday could be enough to see them qualify for the finals in Qatar.
