In a clash against Denmark in the turgid Nations League, England experienced a night of frustration as they kept a 0-0 draw.
The Three Lions were struggling to grab chances throughout and when Christian Eriksen blazed a huge chance over the top the hosts came close to late nicking it.
Following the media uproar over Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden off-field antics Gareth Southgate made three changes from the unconvincing victory over Iceland.
Kalvin Phillips and Conor Coady had debuts from the outset, with the latter appearing as the Three Lions switched system in a back-three.
However, England lacked imagination for extended periods, and not even the introduction of more flair in the form of Mason Mount and another debutant, Jack Grealish could spark a late surge.
As Premier League returns this weekend, the attention will now turn to the upcoming club season. On October 11, England will be next in the action of the Nations League as they entertain Belgium at Wembley. Iceland visits Denmark.
