Germany, England seal World Cup qualification; Poland close

The England team training

GETTY Gareth Southgate's side are preparing for their World Cup Qualifier against Slovenia

The England boss is determined to test his players as much as possible before the tournament next summer in an effort to bring them up to standard.

Instead of getting a goal in the final minutes, England had to deal with quite a bit of pressure from Slovenia who needed a win to stay alive in their qualification campaign, but they finally got the victor when Kyle Walker played a gorgeous ball to Harry Kane, who poked home the opener and gave the Three Lions the victory.

Hart conceded that it was hard for the England supporters at Wembley as the team misfired, but it could not detract from his delight at qualification. Since then they've only reached the semi-finals only once (1990), while they've failed to even progress through to the quarter-finals since 2006, with their last showing a humiliating group stage exit in 2014.

"We should enjoy tonight, it's no easy thing getting to a World Cup". The current world champions only need a point in Belfast to secure their passage, but victory for Michael O'Neill's men would give them an outside chance of topping the group.

England offered little attacking threat on a dreary and subdued night at Wembley Stadium that was lit up only in the fourth minute of additional time when Kane latched onto Walker's cross and struck under goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

"We've got a World Cup to look forward to now and hopefully people have the same dreams as me, we can stick together and make something happen".

"If it was my decision I would give it to him (Kane)", Sherwood said on The Debate.

"We've played a team who have only conceded four goals in the competition and you saw why", he added.
