Gareth Southgate: "Afonso scored a terrific goal in the last round of the cup against Wolves, and looks the one most likely to get goals. The rest of the team have to help in that respect. We need goals from other areas of the field.

"He hit the target every time. But Shay Given made outstanding saves. Afonso is not afraid to miss, and he knows that we have faith in him."
