England announce first World Cup warm-up friendlies

England announce first World Cup warm-up friendlies”

England manager Gareth Southgate has a decision to make with regards to who he chooses between the sticks against Slovenia on Thursday - Hart's poor form with West Ham may finally see someone else given a chance after his reign as number one for the past seven years.

A victor in the fourth minute of stoppage time - as Harry Kane provided to rubberstamp England's ticket to Russian Federation - could normally have been expected to spark joyous scenes and dreams of World Cup glory.

"The guys were brilliant today, we wore them down".

"The team have always got my back and I have always got their back".

"He's stronger than Harry, he's probably got more dynamic pace", Gale told Sky Sports News. But we stuck at it and it's not a coincidence if you keep scoring late goals.

With Dele Alli suspended, Sterling is likely to play in the number 10 role, behind Harry Kane, allowing him to attack the Slovenian centre-backs, and, Southgate hopes, to carry his club form into global football. "We had to be patient and in the last 10 minutes they were getting exhausted", Tottenham Hotspur's Kane, who wore the captain's armband for the third time and the first time at home, said.

"He got too hyped up at the Euros, he had a disaster", added the former Premier League victor, who believes now is the time to give Stoke's Jack Butland his opportunity.

Manchester United centre-back Phil Jones and Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph have both withdrawn from the squad, joining Spurs left-back Danny Rose, Liverpool's Adam Lallana and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy on the sidelines.

Southgate, however, continues to keep his thoughts regarding a full-time successor to the now-retired Wayne Rooney close to his chest.

Spurs also won their first two Champions League group stage games emphatically - but have a double header upcoming against Real Madrid to contend with before hoping to secure their knockout phase place with the final games against Dortmund and Nicosia.

But having been held to a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture against Slovenia a year ago, they know that completing the job at the first time of asking will be no foregone conclusion.

Martin Skrtel's own goal, just a minute from the end of normal time in Glasgow, leaves Scotland second in Group F, two points ahead of Slovakia and three in front of Slovenia ahead of Sunday's trip to Ljubljana.

"It makes me very proud", the 24-year-old said.
