England's match with San Marino Friday quickly turned from a must-win World Cup qualifier into a farce, as the Three Lions romped to an 8-0 victory.

The win, coupled with Poland's loss to Ukraine, provided England with a cushion in Group H's second position, six points clear of Ukraine in third.

Meanwhile, Montenegro's victory over Moldova means that the English are still two points behind the relatively new national team with an important match in Podgorica coming up Tuesday.

Hence, it is quite difficult to gauge the Three Lions performance and know what to think about the squad.

So what can one take away from England's 8-0 victory in Serravalle?

Here are six lessons from Friday's big win.
