Liverpool international round-up: Clyne and Milner feature as England seal Euro 2016 spot

Liverpool pair Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner both played prominent roles as England secured qualification to next summer's European Championships on Saturday evening.

The Three Lions cruised past San Marino, as Wayne Rooney equalled Sir Bobby Charlton's scoring record with his 49th international goal early on, in a 6-0 away win. 

An own goal doubled their lead, before Ross Barkley headed home from close-range inside the first minute of the second-half. A brace from substitute Theo Walcott and another chipped effort from Harry Kane rounded off a resounding victory to make it seven wins from seven for Roy Hodgson's men.

Clyne played for the full 90 minutes in his right-back slot, where he had to do very little defensively and provided an outlet out wide as he pushed high.

Milner, meanwhile, played for 57 minutes before he was replaced by Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph - as England sealed their spot at next summer's tournament in France in emphatic style. 

For Brazil, Philippe Coutinho came off the bench to make a 25 minute cameo as Dunga's side beat Costa Rica by a single goal, but Roberto Firmino was uninvolved.

Otherwise, Martin Skrtel was absent through suspension as Slovakia's 100 per cent record was ruined by Spain.

Midfielder Can has Germany debut to remember as Academy graduates make England impressions

The night before saw Reds' midfielder Emre Can make his debut for Germany in a crucial qualifying clash against Poland.

The 21-year-old took up a role at right-back and featured for the full 90 minutes as an effort from Thomas Müller and Mario Götze's brace gave them a vital 3-1 win to lift them to the top of Group D. 

Earlier on Friday, youngsters Sheyi Ojo and Jordan Rossiter both gave a helping hand as England under-19s overcame Germany in a thrilling 3-2 win. 

Rossiter, who made his league debut for Brendan Rodgers' side at Arsenal a few weeks ago, put in a commanding central midfield display whilst Ojo, who is currently excelling out on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers, opened the scoring after 36 minutes.

Dominic Solanke and Ainsley Maitland-Niles added goals as Aidy Boothroyd's registered a memorable upset despite going down to 10 men in Gladbach.

Elsewhere for Liverpool's international representatives, back-up goalkeeper Adam Bogdan was an unused substitute as Hungary drew 0-0 with Romania
