International friendly matches are always a tough sell but there is less than two weeks to go until the World Cup starts and places in the England team up for grabs so what would people be talking about at Wembley?

REPORT: Sturridge strikes as England stroll to win over Peru

Sturridge's wonder goal?

Whether Welbeck should start ahead of Sterling?

Should Rooney really be guaranteed a start?

No – forget all that nonsense – the storyline that captured the public's imagination was a bloody paper aeroplane.

The paper aeroplanes got plenty of time on the pitch, and the injured Theo Walcott certainly would have liked to have been there, but instead he was stuck in the ITV studio.

Five truths from England v Peru

On the pitch it was pretty hard to judge the performance of the players in such a low-key game but nevertheless Glen Johnson managed to earn some enemies.

But different people see different things – we spotted these two tweets within five seconds of each other.

But hey, you can’t argue with 3-0, and with the mighty Peru now slain, surely there is no stopping England.

Until next time.
