England manager Steve McClaren was simply satisfied with the three points against Estonia at Wembley.

First-half goals from Shaun Wright-Phillips and Wayne Rooney, as well as an own goal by Taavi Rahn, ensured England were 3-0 winners.

England then cruised home in the second-half with all eyes turning to Wednesday's crucial Euro 2008 qualifier in Russia.

"It was a job done," McClaren told Sky Sports.

"We said we could make this game easy in the first 20 minutes, might not win it, but we could make it easier.

"The way we set off, our tempo was good, just what it has been, and we got the three goals.

"We played as a team in the first-half, got the three goals and we'd won the game by them.

"Then it's difficult, the second-half is always going to be flat no matter what you do.

"But it's all about getting the result, getting the three points, the final whistle and concentrating on Russia now."
