Late Kane Winner Sends England To Russia After Turgid Display v Slovenia

Late Kane Winner Sends England To Russia After Turgid Display v Slovenia

The Three Lions scraped past Slovenia thanks to a late Harry Kane goal, securing their spot at the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer.

They will then return to global action in November, with the next round of fixtures set to offer a greater examination of their credentials and offer an indicator as to any progress being made.

"We don't have to go out and entertain we just have to make sure we are hard to beat because we have a world-class centre-forward in Harry Kane".

"They're suffering the consequences of 25 years, 30 years, 40 years (of underachievement)".

"Our players were not playing continuously all the time, but I think there's a bright future in front of us".

This did improve after the break but all in all, this wasn't the kind of display that had anyone believing England stood a realistic chance of getting near to winning the tournament in Russian Federation next summer.

"His leadership qualities are invaluable to us as a team and he is in a good moment with his form", Southgate said at his pre-match media conference.

Sega then tied up with Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014 for the film development in its bid to expand its entertainment brand. To date, the franchise has sold more than 360 million copies of its numerous games across different gaming platforms.

However, amidst all the negativity, a simple fact cannot be ignored, England have qualified for FIFA's showpiece event.

Peru will qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1982 if they can defeat Colombia at home on Tuesday, October 10. "We have done it a few times in this campaign".

"We qualified 2-2 against Greece [in 2002] but didn't play very well, but everyone remembers David Beckham's goal and left on a high".

While the quality of the performances has left a lot to be desired, England have developed a knack of scoring late goals throughout the qualifying campaign - namely a last-ditch victor away to Slovakia, a late Kane equaliser in Scotland and now the England captain's last-gap intervention at Wembley. "There are one or two players we want to look at, but we want to continue building towards the World Cup". We're a squad. We stay together as a squad.

"They've done OK. We haven't learned anything new", he told Omnisport.

"In the end, it's crucial for English football to be at the World Cup". It's probably quite critical for the economy as well!
