Johnson brought down on the right by Taylor so a late free-kick for England. But that is that and the hosts take the three points.
Match is fizzling out as England try and see out the time with what they have after a so-so display.
Young tries to add an England second but he pulls his shot wide of the target. Rooney off and Andy Carroll on.
Bale with a long throw into the England box - it breaks for Ledly but he can't find a telling cross back into a crowded penalty area.
Earnshaw tries to make amends after being well found by Bale but he tries to curl one into the far corner and misses the target.
Gunter pulls out a great save from Hart after Young slips and lets in the Welsh full-back. The whistle had gone though for either offside or a foul on Young. Not sure.
Oh dear. Earnshaw misses a golden chance to make it 1-1 as he fires over the top of an empty net from two yards following a great cross by Blake.
More promise down the left between Ledley and Ramsey but the latter's back-heel in the England box finds no-one.
Wales guilty of overplaying in their own half and Lampard steals the ball. He finds Rooney on the edge of the Welsh box but a muscular challenge from Blake saves the day.
Milner chases hard down the left against Gunther and the ball catapults of Milner's leg and goes behind for a Wales goal-kick.
Bale takes the corner but Ramsey can't quite make contact with it. That is the last action for Morison tonight and Earnshaw is on.
Downing cut down by Taylor on the right and it gives England a free-kick from a very good spot. Hennessy flaps at the centre then Cahill blasts high over the bar.
Milner tries his luck from just outside the box but his shot takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner.
Lampard should have made it 2-0 to England after a great run from Barry. His shot from the edge of the box is scooped over the bar.
Bale twists and turns past three England players but can't really nmake any progress. He opts for a shot from 30 yards but it is well wide of the target.
Wales definitely in the hunt here for an equaliser if they can just find the right final pass or a decent finish.
Corner for Wales is played back to midfield and Neil Taylor but his corss back into the box can't find a Welshteam-mate.
Decent chance for Wales as Bale sets up Ramsey inside the England box but Barry is back to make a timely challenge.
Smalling finds himself playing right wing after a good exchange with Downing but his cross is not great and is easily cleared.
Useful cross from the right by Rooney and Blake just about does enough to direct the patch of the ball with Young waiting menacingly in the box.
Ramsey realeases Bale, who times his run perfectly and is in the clear and closing in on Hart but the whistle goes for offside when he was clearly three yards onside.
Balls come forward from the back by Wales but Morison is isolated up front and is chasing a lot of lost causes.
Mikey B has been less than impressed so far with England: "My God, how dull does this game want to get? We faff around in our own half, get on the edge of the Welsh penalty area, then lose the ball and watch as they try to counter before kicking it into the stands. Some players on the pitch have done literally nothing - Lampard had failed to justify being selected and I didn't realise Barry was on the pitch until half an hour in."
Julian Rose emailed in a bit earlier: "Hope all is well ....we are at work watching this one in bermuda ..hoping Hurricane Katja doesn't decide to change its path !! I would like to say why oh why do we go back to frank ?? nice guy but get scotty parker back out there ..he controls the midfield much better and his distribution is far better ...england look second best right now ..totally crazy ..." Half-time scoreline makes slightly easier reading now if you are an England fan. Good luck with the hurricane!
Thanks to Gabriel Sutton, who says: "Delighted with Ashley Young's goal at a time when Wales were looking well-organised and we were looking like we wouldn't find a way through. Watching thegame on TV and I think we are beginning to become more fluent in our play- our short passes are unhinging a seemingly penetrable Wales defence. Hopefully we can get a few more goals in the second period- a few more chances created and the clinicality of Rooney will make Wales pay for not taking advantage of their optimistic spell in the opening exchanges."
England are 1/33 for the victory now at Sky Bet with Wales on offer at 66s and the draw is 12s. Next goalscorer betting sees Rooney at 11/4 with Young a 5/1 chance. If you think England will go on and win 4-0 that is a 6/1 chance.
Rooney clipped by Crofts and gets a free-kick but there is no time to take it and the whistle goes for half-time.
Morison fires a long ball across field towards Bale but the latter shoves Cole and England are awarded the free-kick.
Long ball over the top towards Rooney and Hennessey commits at the edge of the area and makes the clearance.
All of a sudden the Welsh are being pressed back and there is an extra spring in the step of the England players as they push for a second before the break.
GOAL ASHLEY YOUNG: Downing beats his man on the right to reach the byline and his cross is met by a fierce right-foot shot that gives Hennessey no chance from eight yards.
Gunther robs Cole with a meaty challenge then charges forward. He weighs up his options and goes for a long-range shot. Then wished he hadn't as it sails miles wide.
Better from England involving Rooney and Downing but Lampard just loses control of the ball on the edge of the Welsh area.
Young teases Chris Gunther down the left and crosses just over the head of Rooney. Downing is waiting with a left-foot volley but it goes over the bar.
Bale continues to make hay down the right and wins a throw-in for Wales. Really good spell for the visitors.
Gary Cahill manages to clear the corner with Morison lurking. Wales keep on the attack with another throw which Chris Smalling clears upfield.
Aaron Ramsey picks out a lovely cross from the right but there are no red shirts in the England box.
Electrifying bit of footwork from Bale down the right flank but James Milner hacks him down and gets the first caution of the evening.
Another teasing cross from Downing and Rooney is lurking but Hennessey is off his line to pluck the ball out of the air.
Downing gets the better of Neil Taylor down the right flank but his cross is a bit too deep. A second cross from Downing then just fails to pick out Rooney and Blake can head clear.
Terry makes a mess of trying to fend of Steve Morison and the striker gets his shot away from a sharp angle but it is always going over the bar.
Good spell of possession from the Welsh then a long ball towards Steve Morison is easily dealt with.
Jack Collison makes a good run to the edge of the area but Terry is across to tackle well. A couple of shaky clearances follow from the home side and they don't look the most convincing.
Free-kick well delivered into the England box by Bale and Ashley Williams just heads behind. Ashley Young then chases down a ball at the other end but Hennessey is off his line well to gather.
Darcy Blake forced to concede the corner after a low cross from the left by Cole. John Terry hets his head to the corner under pressure and it goes wide of the upright.
Ashley Williams punts a long ball forward but Cole is able to guide the ball back to Joe Hart with a cushioned header.
Lampard launches a long ball from the back and Wayne Rooney tries to muscle between two defenders but the ball goes right through to Wayne Hennessey.
Nice burst from Neil Taylor but he runs into Frank Lampard in midfield and is felled - but no free-kick.
Early throw for Engkand down the left in Welsh territory taken by Ashley Cole. Quickly followed by a free-kick for Wales so they can clear their lines.
"Hi there dave my name's scott from stockport I'm sat here just seen the squads for england and wales. And to be honest out of all the wales team bale to have a good game but 3-0 england with young lampard and rooney scoring" Many thanks Scott. The teams are now on the pitch meeting some officials.
Keep the comments rolling in and I will use as many as possible in the build-up to kick-off. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have just been told there is a little icon to acknowledge your feedback. I have just started to use it.
Hi to Liam Ferguson, who says: "I think the England starting eleven looks brilliant tonight, Milner and Young will destroy Wales on the wings and Rooney will be devastating up front. My prediction for tonight England to win either 2-0 or 3-0 with Rooney scoring first." Many thanks for you prediction.
Aaron Johnson from Hamburg adds: "Not quite sure what Lampard did in the last game to justify his placement in the squad today but hopefully he'll play a good game. 3-0 to England and I hope Carroll doesn't make it off the bench but Adam Johnson does!" I am with you on the scoreline!
Thanks to you early emailers and Peter Robinson, an ex-pat Villa fan now living in Chicago says: "I reckon a tight game with England nicking it late on 75th minute from a Lampard Penalty. Keep up the good work." Thanks for that Peter, I am going for a few more goals personally maybe 3-0 or 4-0 to the home side.
The latest odds from Sky Bet make England red-hot favourites at 1/8 with Wales 18/1 andf the draw 13/2. In-form wayne Rooney is unsurprisingly the market leader for First Goalscorer and he is 5/2 while Steve Morison is 16/1 to notch for the visitors.
And the Welsh: Hennessey, Gunter, Williams, Blake, Taylor, Bale, Crofts, Collison, Ramsey, Ledley, Morison. Subs: Myhill, Danny Collins, James Collins, King, Allen, Robson-Kanu, Earnshaw.

Pre-match: England head coach Fabio Capello recalls midfielder Frank Lampard to the starting line-up for the Euro 2012 qualifier with Wales at Wembley. Lampard, left out of the side which won in Bulgaria on Friday, and James Milner are included in place of Scott Parker and the injured Theo Walcott. Wales are without the suspended duo of Craig Bellamy and David Vaughan and have brought Jack Collison and Andrew Crofts into their line-up.
