He set up the final goal for Cauley Woodrow.

Sunderland team-mate Jordan Pickford was left on the bench as Gareth Southgate rotated his squad.

Angus Gunn was given a start and was picking the ball out of his net after 48 seconds when Guinea took a shock lead.

Jack Grealish quickly volleyed an equaliser before James Ward-Prowse put England ahead from the penalty spot after a handball in the box.

The dangerous Nathan Redmond zipped in a third goal before Grealish capped a full debut to rememeber just before half-time.

Grealish drifted past two defenders before firing home to effectively put the game out of sight at the interval.

Fulham striker Woodrow was the star of the second half and he helped make it 5-1 four minutes after the break when his initial shot hit the woodwork then ricocheted into the net off the unfortunate Mohamed Toure.

Woodrow got on the scoresheet himself just before the hour mark when he drifted in from the left channel and fired home past the exposed Guinea goalkeeper.

And he grabbed his second in the 73rd minute after Watmore raced onto a Nathaniel Chalobah through ball before delivering a precise cross from which the Fulham man side-footed home.
