Italy have now gone 37 internationals unbeaten, a world record .Moise Kean grabbed his first international goals since March 2019 as Italy thrashed Lithuania 5-0 in World Cup qualifying Wednesday, as Damian Szymanski’s late header forced England to settle for a draw in Poland.
Italy had drawn their previous two qualifiers to slip into a battle with Switzerland for automatic qualification from Group C.
Edgaras Utkus put through his own net and Giacomo Raspadori also scored as Italy moved four ahead at the break.
The hosts were second in Group I, five points behind England, before kick-off and frustrated their opponents for long periods.
England captain Harry Kane appeared to have settled a tempestuous affair with 18 minutes remaining, slamming a swerving long-range shot into the bottom corner to score his 41st international goal.
But Szymanski headed home at the back post from Robert Lewandowski’s cross in injury time.
Gareth Southgate’s men are still four points clear of second-placed Albania, who thumped San Marino 5-0 in Tirana.
But an impressive 4-0 victory in Iceland made it three wins from three for the former Bayern Munich boss.
Werner and Gnabry have both scored three times in these three games, with Sane on the scoresheet twice.
Chelsea center-back Antonio Ruediger was the other scorer as Germany stretched four points clear of Armenia in Group J.
The Armenians were held to a disappointing 1-1 home draw by Liechtenstein.
In Group E, Belgium continued their cruise towards qualification as Dennis Praet’s first-half effort saw Roberto Martinez’s side edge out Belarus 1-0 in Kazan.
