England 4-0 Moldova
Hosts England cruised past Moldova and could have scored even more in a lopsided match at Wembley. Danny Welbeck scored twice, and Rickie Lambert added a goal and two assists for the Three Lions, who took over top spot in Group H on goal difference.
Captain Steven Gerrard opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a pinpoint low shot. Lambert (26') and Welbeck (45') made it 3-0 by half-time, and Welbeck—who will miss England's next match through yellow-card accumulation—completed the scoring in the 50th minute with a clipped finish.
Lambert, who also scored on his England debut, became the first player to score in his first two senior internationals since 1976.
England, who have a match in hand on second-placed Montenegro, travel to Ukraine on Tuesday.
Poland 1-1 Montenegro
Hosts Poland held Montenegro to a 1-1 draw, allowing England to move to the top of the group.
Both goals came in the opening 20 minutes. Dejan Damjanovic put Montenegro ahead in the 12th minute, only for Robert Lewandowski to equalise with a powerful move and finish four minutes later.
Montenegro have 15 points through eight matches. Poland are fourth with 10 points through seven matches.
Ukraine 9-0 San Marino
Eight different players scored, as Ukraine romped past minnows San Marino.
Yevhen Khacheridi scored twice, and Marko Devic, Yevhen Seleznyov, Edmar Aparesida, Yevhen Konoplyanka, Roman Bezus, Artem Fedetskyy and Yaroslav Rakitskiy added one apiece.
Ukraine are third with 14 points through seven matches.
