England concluded their preparations for Euro 2012 with a win over Belgium that gave new manager Roy Hodgson his second successive victory since taking charge.
Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck stated his case for inclusion in England's opening game against France in Donetsk with a cleverly taken first-half goal after fine work from Ashley Young.
As in the 1-0 win against Norway in Oslo,
this was an England performance built on the foundations of solid defence and tactical discipline. Hodgson's approach may not illuminate proceedings in Poland and Ukraine but early evidence suggests they will be tough to break down.
Belgium, with Chelsea-bound Eden Hazard and a host of Premier League talent in their line-up, dominated territory for long spells but once again England demonstrated admirable resolve to ensure they leave for their Krakow base this week with another win to accompany them.
If there is a concern, it was the amount of possession England were prepared to concede to Belgium. The visitors were unable to take advantage but Hodgson will know his side must beware against superior opposition carrying a greater threat in front of goal.
Chelsea-bound Eden Hazard's Wembley highlights
0 mins - name roundly booed when announced at Wembley
12 mins - lovely first-time backheel as he links up with Kevin Mirallas down the left channel
40 mins - curls in decent shot from 35 yards which dips in front of Joe Hart but the keeper holds on to save
61 mins - curls a shot at Hart from 25 yards
82 mins - cuts in from left and thumps a rising shot over the top
And this friendly was not without its injury worries,
with defender Gary Cahill substituted early on after a nasty, needless push by Dries Mertens that caused him to collide with goalkeeper Joe Hart, an incident that left the Chelsea defender requiring a precautionary X-ray at Wembley.
And Chelsea team-mate John Terry was also left needing a scan after going off with a hamstring injury.
Welbeck, in particular, will be happy with his work. Hodgson must now consider whether to promote him above Liverpool's Andy Carroll as Young's strike partner against France.
Belgium did provide an anxious moment late on when Guillaume Gillet hit the post, but substitute Jermain Defoe also had a similar near miss for England.
Belgium had seen more of the ball than England but it was Hodgson's side that made the breakthrough after 36 minutes with a goal that was a delight in its creation and conclusion. Young's measured pass found his Manchester United team-mate Welbeck, who waited for keeper Simon Mignolet to make his move before scoring with a deft, lofted finish.
Hodgson was clearly keen to give Rooney some game time so he was introduced as a substitute for Welbeck after 53 minutes, his first action since Manchester United's final game of the Premier League season at Sunderland on 13 May.
The gifted Hazard, like his team, enjoyed plenty of possession without applying an end product. He did test Hart with a curling effort on the hour and seconds later Everton's Marouane Fellaini wasted a better chance by shooting tamely at Hart from only eight yards.
Belgium almost found the finishing touch that had eluded them when Gillet hit the outside of the post from 20 yards with Hart well beaten.
England's response came swiftly when substitute Defoe struck the woodwork with a low shot in a rare venture into Belgian territory - and as Hodgson's side took a lap of honour after the final whistle there was a mood of cautious optimism in the camp.
