Johnson brought down on the right by Taylor so a late free-kick for England. But that is that and the hosts take the three points.
Young tries to add an England second but he pulls his shot wide of the target. Rooney off and Andy Carroll on.
King on in place of Collison.
That was Downing's last contribution and he is replaced by Adam Johnson.
Scott Parker on for England in place of Lampard.
Bale takes the corner but Ramsey can't quite make contact with it. That is the last action for Morison tonight and Earnshaw is on.
Mikey B has been less than impressed so far with England: "My God, how dull does this game want to get? We faff around in our own half, get on the edge of the Welsh penalty area, then lose the ball and watch as they try to counter before kicking it into the stands. Some players on the pitch have done literally nothing - Lampard had failed to justify being selected and I didn't realise Barry was on the pitch until half an hour in."
Kevin Insley, also from Bermuda, suggests to Julian Rose that he should get back to work.
Julian Rose emailed in a bit earlier: "Hope all is well ....we are at work watching this one in bermuda ..hoping Hurricane Katja doesn't decide to change its path !! I would like to say why oh why do we go back to frank ?? nice guy but get scotty parker back out there ..he controls the midfield much better and his distribution is far better ...england look second best right now ..totally crazy ..." Half-time scoreline makes slightly easier reading now if you are an England fan. Good luck with the hurricane!
Thanks to Gabriel Sutton, who says: "Delighted with Ashley Young's goal at a time when Wales were looking well-organised and we were looking like we wouldn't find a way through. Watching thegame on TV and I think we are beginning to become more fluent in our play- our short passes are unhinging a seemingly penetrable Wales defence. Hopefully we can get a few more goals in the second period- a few more chances created and the clinicality of Rooney will make Wales pay for not taking advantage of their optimistic spell in the opening exchanges."
England are 1/33 for the victory now at Sky Bet with Wales on offer at 66s and the draw is 12s. Next goalscorer betting sees Rooney at 11/4 with Young a 5/1 chance. If you think England will go on and win 4-0 that is a 6/1 chance.
Rooney clipped by Crofts and gets a free-kick but there is no time to take it and the whistle goes for half-time.
GOAL ASHLEY YOUNG: Downing beats his man on the right to reach the byline and his cross is met by a fierce right-foot shot that gives Hennessey no chance from eight yards.
Electrifying bit of footwork from Bale down the right flank but James Milner hacks him down and gets the first caution of the evening.
"Hi there dave my name's scott from stockport I'm sat here just seen the squads for england and wales. And to be honest out of all the wales team bale to have a good game but 3-0 england with young lampard and rooney scoring" Many thanks Scott. The teams are now on the pitch meeting some officials.
I have just been told there is a little icon to acknowledge your feedback. I have just started to use it.
Hi to Liam Ferguson, who says: "I think the England starting eleven looks brilliant tonight, Milner and Young will destroy Wales on the wings and Rooney will be devastating up front. My prediction for tonight England to win either 2-0 or 3-0 with Rooney scoring first." Many thanks for you prediction.
Aaron Johnson from Hamburg adds: "Not quite sure what Lampard did in the last game to justify his placement in the squad today but hopefully he'll play a good game. 3-0 to England and I hope Carroll doesn't make it off the bench but Adam Johnson does!" I am with you on the scoreline!
Thanks to you early emailers and Peter Robinson, an ex-pat Villa fan now living in Chicago says: "I reckon a tight game with England nicking it late on 75th minute from a Lampard Penalty. Keep up the good work." Thanks for that Peter, I am going for a few more goals personally maybe 3-0 or 4-0 to the home side.
The latest odds from Sky Bet make England red-hot favourites at 1/8 with Wales 18/1 andf the draw 13/2. In-form wayne Rooney is unsurprisingly the market leader for First Goalscorer and he is 5/2 while Steve Morison is 16/1 to notch for the visitors.
