Steve McClaren has pointed to England´s best performance of his difficult time in charge and warned his players not to drop below those standards in future.

Goals from Shaun Wright-Phillips, Michael Owen and Micah Richards guided the Three Lions to a 3-0 romp over Israel at Wembley. A similar performance against Russia at the same venue on Wednesday would leave England tantalisingly close to booking their place at the 2008 European finals in Austria and Switzerland.

He said: "That performance sets the bar. It is not just the score; I would take taken one-nil. It is the fact that we had a lot of injuries, yet players have stepped in and done the job."
