Gareth Southgate leads England through to 2018 World Cup

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

Gareth Southgate's side booked their place in Russian Federation next summer after Harry Kane scored a last-gasp victor against Slovenia on Thursday night, but they were slammed for a performance which has been branded tiresome, lifeless and mediocre.

"Tonight highlighted where we are", he said.

Prior to the Tottenham Hotspur striker's intervention, England had laboured to little avail against Srecko Katanec's charges, who had conceded just four goals in their previous eight qualifiers.

"I'm not going to hide and say we are exactly where we want to be but we have had six wins and two draws in my time in charge".

Scotland's hopes of reaching Russian Federation remain alive after a late victor gave them a 1-0 victory over 10-man Slovakia.

"They're suffering the consequences of 25 years, 30 years, 40 years (of underachievement)".

England need one win from their two remaining matches to seal top spot in Group F and automatic qualification for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

To make the World Cup qualifying play-offs, Ireland must beat Moldova tomorrow night and win in Cardiff against Wales on Monday.

"We know the speed and pace of our exciting attacking players, but they limited the opportunities for that to have an effect".

Gareth Southgate: "We would have liked to have played more fluidly and scored more goals".

"I think this team has potential, but we have got a hell of a lot of work to do".

He has developed a reputation as a firebrand since joining Spurs in 2015 and Kane, who will captain England at Wembley, said: 'The older and wiser he gets it probably won't happen that often. Teams won't be able to cope with us with two up front. "We'd already had that conversation", Southgate said. "But we have got goalscorers".

"Everyone has their own opinion of where they think we are at".

While the quality of the performances has left a lot to be desired, England have developed a knack of scoring late goals throughout the qualifying campaign - namely a last-ditch victor away to Slovakia, a late Kane equaliser in Scotland and now the England captain's last-gap intervention at Wembley.
