McClaren full of praise for Wigan's Heskey

England boss Steve McClaren was full of praise for Wigan Athletic striker Emile Heskey after last night's victory over Russia.

"He's been out for three years and everybody wondered whether he would be back. But a few players performed tonight who also played well on Saturday and that's the key," he explained.

"We need to win games on the bounce and the players performed in both games exactly as they should."
