Qualifiers for Euro2016 have taken place on both Thursday and Friday night around the continent as 53 countries vie to join hosts France in UEFA's regional tournament in two years' time.
On Thursday, England defeated San Marino 5-0 at Wembley with captain Wayne Rooney adding to his international scoring tally courtesy of a first-half penalty which saw him move to 42 goals for the Three Lions.
In the other Group E fixtures, Lithuania edged Estonia 1-0 in Vilnius while Slovenia got the better of Switzerland with a 1-0 victory in Maribor which leaves the Swiss without a point from two outings.
In Group C, reigning European champions Spain suffered an unlikely 2-1 defeat at the hands of Slovakia who had Juraj Kucka and Miroslav Stoch to thank for their goals which came either side of Paco Alcacer's 82nd-minute equaliser.
Ukraine managed to score two late goals to beat Belarus 2-0 in Borisov while Macedonia required an injury-time winner to down Luxembourg 3-2 in Skopje.
Other results on Thursday saw Sweden and Russia play out a 1-1 draw in Group G as Austria lasted the final 10 minutes with 10 men to beat Moldova 2-1 in Chisinau and Liechtenstein picked up a point with a scoreless draw at home to Montenegro.
Friday night gave us plenty of goals with Belgium hammering Andorra 6-0 in Brussels courtesy of doubles from Kevin de Bruyne and Dries Mertens to give them a perfect start to their Group B campaign.
Wales went top of the group after drawing 0-0 with Bosnia-Herzegovina in Cardiff while Israel scored a 2-1 triumph over Cyprus in Nicosia to kick off their campaign with maximum points.
In Group A, Holland survived a scare to eventually overcome Kazakhstan 3-1 in Amsterdam thanks to late goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Ibrahim Afellay and Robin van Persie following Rinat Abdulin's earlier opener.
Other matches in that group saw Gylfi Sigurdsson on target as Iceland overcame Latvia 3-0 in Riga while the Czech Republic came from behind to beat Turkey 2-1 in Istanbul.
The Azzurri sit top of the group on six points alongside Croatia who needed an own-goal from Nikolay Bodurov to defeat Bulgaria 1-0 in Sofia while Blackburn Rovers striker Joshua Kinmg scored twice to lead Norway to a 3-0 victory over Malta.
The fixtures continue tomorrow with Saturday playing host to eight more fixtures with the highlights being World Cup winners Germany's trip to Poland and Scotland's home meeting with Georgia.
