Harry Kane's late goal seals England World Cup qualification

Jack Wilshere is being lined up for a World Cup call as Gareth Southgate look to add creativity

To avoid disappointment, make sure to register your bet early.

Gareth Southgate has succeeded in steering the team to next year's finals, but it remains to be seen if England's fortunes will change in Russian Federation.

"I'm extremely proud, not just for myself but for the team, for the nation", Kane said. City have impressed in Europe as well, with two wins from two to top their UEFA Champions League group.

Martin Skrtel's 89th-minute own goal gave Scotland a 1-0 victory over Slovakia, who were reduced to 10 men in the 23rd minute when Robert Mak was shown a second yellow card for diving.

The result means England have not lost in their last 20 World Cup qualifiers - a run that stretches back eight years - and they have topped their World Cup qualification group for the sixth time in succession.

England and Southgate have achieved their goal.

"It is a work in progress and when I was given the job the aim was to qualify for the World Cup".

The three lions may have qualified for the football showpiece spectacular next summer with a game to spare and remaining unbeaten, so far anyway, but they have hardly been convincing.

New Betfair customers can get 20/1 enhanced odds (max bet £1) on England to beat Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday night.

"The players they have coming into their squad seem to adapt to global football very quickly". Maybe at some point tonight we might enjoy the fact we're at the World Cup, although that might take a few minutes.

Striker Omar Al Somah scored a late penalty as the Syrians drew 1-1 with Australia in the first leg of their play-off against Australia. England look in a good position to win this fixture comfortably.

"It is an unbelievable feeling to score, no matter what the time, and it's great to go through to the World Cup".

England will host Slovenia at 19:45 BST on Thursday 5 October 2017.

Germany are looking to retain the World Cup next summer after their Brazil 2014 glory and are regarded as one of the favourites to lift the trophy.
