New Delhi: England achieved a new feather under manager Roy Hodgson after winning their 10th match in a row at the 2016 Euro qualifying campaign.
The Three Lions became only the sixth team to end a European qualifying campaign with a 100 percent record when they beat Lithuania 3-0 in their final Group E match on Monday.
England, who went in with eight changes from the team that started Friday's 2-0 win over Estonia, made sure they collected all 30 points from the qualifying round.
Eighteen teams have so far qualified for the main event to be held in France next year.
