England have got the World Cup send-off they wanted after an easy 3-0 win over Peru at Wembley on Friday night.

The match was the first of three international friendlies before England's World Cup opener on 14 June.

A superb strike from Daniel Sturridge gave England the lead in the first half. Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka both scored in the second half.

Sturridge said: "It was a good night's work. Good preparation for us for the first game in the World Cup."

England head to Miami in America this weekend for their next two friendlies in hotter weather.

They face Ecuador on 4 June and Honduras on 7 June.
