England secures spot at next year's FIFA World Cup

Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane are all in the midst of excellent club form. These both teams are coming from the Group F. England is in the first place with 20 points and Slovenia is in the third place with 14 points.

His 93rd-minute equaliser prevented England from falling to a first defeat against Scotland since 1999 in June's 2-2 draw in Glasgow and he netted twice as Southgate's men won 4-0 away to Malta last month.

The Scots, missing from the World Cup since 1998, will be guaranteed second place in Europe's Group F and a potential place in the play-offs if they beat Slovenia on Sunday.

"We qualified last time, we get to major tournaments and then we completely freeze".

"He recognises his responsibilities and how things will be viewed, and how his world is changing in terms of the spotlight on him".

By the time Kane had converted late on, numerous fans had already made their way to the tube station in the hope of avoiding the full-time rush.

That goal would win the game for Southgate's side, who now progress to next summer's finals, albeit after a thoroughly flaccid display on the night.

"What we want to do is maximise the abilities that we have and the capabilities that we have. Absolutely not. But the objective was to qualify for Russian Federation".

In 13 competitive England games, Kane has scored six goals and become one of the shining lights during a dark period for the national side and The FA. The Manchester United youngster chipped the ball over Oblak, but it was cleared before it could cross the line.

Yet Southgate, who took over from Sam Allardyce after one game in Group F and has sealed top spot with a game to spare, said the only thing that mattered for now was that England had completed their first task of making it to Russian Federation.

Hart did pull off a fine save late on.

"It's the nature of playing for England and managing England", said Southgate, who stepped into the breach after Sam Allardyce was brought down by a newspaper sting following just one game at the helm.
