Curran produced his clinical finish in Cardiff after the bowler followed up to run out Danushka Gunathilaka for the first wicket.
Curran told Sky Sports: “In the football spirit, it’s coming home, so I’m very happy.”
In response to claims by Kumar Sangakkara that Curran failed to score a goal in three years of football warm-ups at Surrey, the England star replied: “Sanga’s kept quiet but he’s one of the worst. He’s a great player but a shocking footballer!”

Curran’s silky skills certainly impressed Sky Sports commentator David Lloyd. ‘Bumble’ said: “Oh footwork. The Euros, get him in!”
Shot-shy England have scored just two goals in three games at Euro 2020 but face a huge challenge against rivals Germany on Tuesday at Wembley.
And Curran’s confident touch in front of the posts would not go amiss on the pitch when England’s tournament is on the line.
