Ademola Lookman and Ezri Konsa put England two clear within the opening 27 minutes as only keeper Francisco Pires kept them at bay.

Everton frontman Calvert-Lewin then cracked a double either side of half-time, the second a penalty.

Dominic Solanke and, in stoppage time, fellow sub Reiss Nelson brought up six.
