Gareth Southgate leads England through to 2018 World Cup

Gareth Southgate leads England through to 2018 World Cup

World champions Germany will face England at Wembley on November 10 before Brazil head to the national stadium four days later.

A youthful Three Lions squad secured their place in next year's Russian Federation finals thanks to Harry Kane's late striker against Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday.

Even their fans seem to have given up after they spent most of the Slovenia qualifier entertaining themselves by throwing paper aeroplanes onto the pitch.

England dragged themselves over the finish line with a 93rd-minute victor by in-form striker Harry Kane.

True, they are, England's sixth World Cup in a row, and perhaps the problem has always been the unrealistic expectations held by many in England, from the fans to the media.

England's wretched display somehow ended on an upbeat note when Kane stretched to convert Kyle Walker's cross in stoppage-time.

"Now we have to really see how we can compete against these big teams".

"I don't think there is just one thing, we need to work on everything", he added.

Bale missing from Real Madrid squad for Espanyol clash
The Madrid boss felt the Spain attacking midfielder was wise to praise Ronaldo as an example to follow as he continues to develop. However, Madrid have yet to win at the Bernabeu this season, and Espanyol have pulled off some impressive draws this season.

"If you look at the last time we won anything for England it was a long, long time ago". We're in an era where it must be hard for the supporters to relate to players because of what they earn and all of the hullabaloo that is around them. "Other top countries around the world are struggling to qualify, so to qualify with one game to go, we're all delighted - that's job done for us".

Some judges believe that Rashford can be England's version of France forward Kylian Mbappe, with his pace, trickery and eye for goal making him a mercurial part of Southgate's squad.

Harry Kane feels he is in the best form of his professional career after following up his stunning September with the victor for England against Slovenia.

And Thursday demonstrated that for all the creative potential of certain players, they lack a plan when it comes to possession play.

The midfield of Chamberlain, Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson is pedestrian and the return of the suspended Dele Alli only marginally raises hopes. When he was substituted at Huddersfield, the home fans gave him a round of applause, despite scoring twice against the Terriers.

Christopher Davies was a longtime Premier League correspondent for the London Daily Telegraph.

'Everyone was disappointed with the performance [against Slovenia], none more so than me.
