Kane to captain England for crunch World Cup qualifier

Kane to captain England for crunch World Cup qualifier”

Southgate knows there is plenty of work to do to prevent next year's World Cup going the same way as recent major tournament displays, with the manager under no illusions of the task ahead of him. "The players they have coming into their squad seem to adapt to global football very quickly".

Joshua Kimmich then added a third on 86 minutes, while Josh Magennis grabbed an injury-time consolation for the hosts.

Germany emphatically booked a place in Russian Federation after beating runners up in Group C, Northern Ireland 3-1, making it a ideal nine in the qualifiers.

Sebastian Rudy, Sandro Wagner and Joshua Kimmich were on target for the world champions. Friendlies against Germany and Brazil in November will give this young side a real test and before any of the players, fans or coaches can even dream of success at Russian Federation next summer, there is much work to be done for the Three Lions.

Germany defeated the Irish side 3-1 at the latter's Windsor Park in Belfast to top Group C with an unassailable 27 points from nine matches.

Harry Kane's stoppage-time goal guaranteed England's place at Russian Federation 2018 as the top team in Group F. And God Save Harry Kane's little toe boot for sending England a step closer to a disappointingly premature exit from the Russian World Cup.

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

At the moment Ireland aren't even in second place, however Wales would be the ninth best runner-up.

"In the end, for English football it is crucial to be at a World Cup".

Bale made 146 appearances for Spurs between 2007-2013 after joining from Southampton before leaving for Madrid in an £85.3million, a world transfer record.

After Denmark won at Montenegro 1-0, Poland lead Group E by three points over the Danes.

There are nine European qualifying groups for the tournament in Russian Federation, and nations that finish at the top qualify automatically.
