McClaren delighted with Andorra drubbing

England head coach Steve McClaren was delighted with his side's 5-0 defeat of Andorra at Old Trafford as strikers Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe shared four goals.

Crouch and Defoe hit two goals each and Steven Gerrard was also on target as McClaren saw his side stick to his game plan in the opening game of England's Euro 2008 qualifying programme.

McClaren said: 'They handled the game very well, just what we asked of them.

'It was always going to be a test for us, not how many goals we scored but the way we handled the game.

'The players handled it immaculately, we scored at the right times. Defoe and Crouch, the main men, got the goals.'

McClaren was also impressed with substitute Andrew Johnson.

McClaren told BBC Sport: 'I thought Andy Johnson came on and looked very lively. The competition for places is there.

'They were good goals against any opposition.'

Crouch opened scoring inside first five minutes with a low shot to the keeper's right.

Gerrard made it 2-0 with a close-range half volley after 12 minutes and Defoe struck the third when he volleyed in Gerrard's cross from the right in the 39th minute.

Defoe made it 4-0 early in the second half and Crouch got his second when he rose to head in Arron Lennon's cross in the 68th minute.

McClaren's side now face Macedonia in Skopje on Wednesday and the England coach expects a tougher test than against Andorra.

He said: 'It's a different test. It's going to be a difficult one.'

Gerrard has urged Crouch to focus his sights on England's all-time scoring record after his latest double blast against Andorra.

said: 'Peter's goal record is frightening and it's great to see as well. 'I am sure he will be disappointed not to have got another hat-trick because he had a good chance at the end as well.

'If Crouchy gets the right service, he is going to put the ball in the back of the net because he is a great finisher. I hope he beats Bobby Charlton's record.''

Crouch said: 'I am pleased with the record I've got. We are a creative team and it's great to play in a team like this when you are going to get chances and I got a couple today.

'I am enjoying it. There have been times when I haven't scored but at the minute it's happening and if you can't enjoy it when you are scoring goals, you never will.

'I do love playing here. I love playing for England. It's an attacking team and I know I am going to get chances. I was disappointed not to get the hat-trick.

'Steven Gerrard said to me about Bobby Charlton's record in the dressing room. I've just got to keep on going. I am enjoying myself at the moment and have just got to keep going.'
