Gareth Southgate sees potential in England ahead of World Cup

Gareth Southgate embraces Harry Kane after the striker scored a late equaliser in Scotland

Late goals have underpinned England's successful qualifying campaign - Kane scored a late equaliser away to Scotland in June, while Adam Lallana struck deep in stoppage-time to earn a 1-0 win in Slovakia in September 2016, which turned out to be Sam Allardyce's sole game in charge.

Jamie Redknapp has urged England to finally perform on the big stage after securing qualification for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Rashford and Kane played the entirety of England's unconvincing 1-0 World Cup qualifying win over Slovenia last night.

His late intervention not only spared the team's blushes after a dreary display that offered little encouragement for next summer's tournament, it provided the ideal ending to Kane's night, which had begun with him leading the side out as captain.

"I'm biased, but Harry Kane is the best striker in the Premier League", the defender was quoted as saying by Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws. "Well, in the end it is to win matches and making sure we qualified for the World Cup was crucial". It is no easy thing getting to a World Cup, there are some big countries around the world that are struggling. I'm delighted, the team are delighted.

Despite the unenthusiastic reaction to the performance, Kane says England should be proud of their achievement.

Both players are strong and will run all day, but at club level their tireless "fetch-and-carry" attributes are supplemented by the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Christian Eriksen, who do possess the qualities needed to unlock well-organised defences.

"But we stuck at it and it's not a coincidence that we keep scoring late goals".

"We're a squad. We stay together as a squad".

"Fingers crossed we can do it this time or at least show what we're capable of".

"We've got the players, we've got the capabilities".

"That one hurt", Hart said. I was happy to get the goal.

"We have got goalscorers and we have got some attacking players that we think will cause problems to any team in the world. You just never know".

Just as it proved a momentous night for Kane, Hart's 74th cap pulls him clear of Gordon Banks in the list of appearances made by England goalkeepers. "They're big heroes of mine", Hart said. It is not something that I definitely want to do but it could happen. That's my dream, I'm still a little boy dreaming.

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