WORLD CUP: EUROPE RESULTS AND RESULTS – Sept 6

LONDON (Sporting Alert) — England, Russia, Portugal and Spain were all winners on Friday, while the Netherlands and France were among the teams held in their FIFA 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

A double from Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck and one each from captain Steven Gerrard and Rickie Lambert, who has now scored two goals in two appearances for the national team, guided England to a comfortable 4-0 win over Moldova.
