And Wales, too, looked impressive battling back for a draw with the USA.
It was a joyful day marred only by the grotesque uselessness of Fifa and the gutless football associations buckling to its edicts.
Our FA vowed to take a stand on Qatar’s appalling human rights record, then capitulated at the slightest threat over the One Love armbands.
