Red Hot Harry Kane Sends England To World Cup

England captain for the night, Harry Kane scored a late winner as Gareth Southgate's side beat Slovenia 1-0 at Wembley to qualify for the 2018 World Cup with a game to spare. England only needed two points from their final two matches but took all three thanks to Kane's 94th-minute intervention.

The result means England have not lost in their last 20 World Cup qualifiers and they have topped their World Cup qualification group for the sixth time in succession. Southgate's side dominated possession but struggled to create and ceded the first opportunity to the visitors, with Josip Ilicic's penalty appeal turned down after contact was made by Joe Hart. England's best chance of the first half fell to Jordan Henderson but Atletico Madrid 'keeper Jan Oblak got down well to keep out the midfielder's low effort.
Kane then dragged an effort wide before smart goalkeeping by Hart prevented substitute Tim Matavz from putting the visitors ahead on the counter and Tottenham forward Kane did his chances of keeping the armband no harm with a clinical low finish from Kyle Walker's delivery in stoppage time to ensure England will be in Russia next year.
