Top five stats from England's 3-1 win featuring Arsenal, United and Liverpool stars

Rooney E

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney crowned his 100th England cap with a goal as the Three Lions fought back from behind to defeat Slovenia 3-1 at Wembley.

Wayne Rooney scored on his 100th appearance before Danny Welbeck grabbed a brace as England recovered from a one goal deficit to claim three points and maintain their 100 per cent record in Euro 2016 qualifying.

Here are the top five statistics from Saturday's encounter:

1) With his penalty, Wayne Rooney joins Jimmy Greaves on 44 goals for England, just five short of Sir Bobby Charlton's record. The Manchester United striker also became the youngest player to reach 100 caps for England (29 years 22 days).

2) Danny Welbeck has now scored five goals in his last four matches for England. He scored the same number of goals for the Three Lions in this tie, as he has for Arsenal in 8 league appearances this term. The 23-year-old now leads the competition's scoring chart - no player across Europe has netted on more occasions in qualifying. 

3) Raheem Sterling completed more dribbles than any other player against Slovenia - five. He proved instrumental in England's third goal, linking up excellently with Welbeck, for his second of the night. 

4) As well as scoring an own goal, Liverpool's Jordan Henderson had the lowest pass completion of any England outfielder today. The Liverpool midfielder completed just 74.6% of his 63 attempted passes. Nonetheless, he recorded the second-highest number of touches (74), behind only Phil Jagielka (89).

5) England have now won five successive matches in all competitions for the first time since November 2008. Roy Hodgson's remain unbeaten in qualifying Group E, having won all four of their opening fixtures.
