Germany, England seal 2018 World Cup berths

Germany, England seal 2018 World Cup berths”

Shilton kept a record 65 clean sheets for England and bowed out on a high after helping the team reach the World Cup semi-finals in 1990.

Following England's laborious qualification for the World Cup, manager Gareth Southgate has acknowledged there is a lack of empathy between his team and the country's football fans.

England, of course, won their one and only World Cup a whopping 51 years ago on home soil.

"I'm an England fan too".

Nine of Harry Kane's 11 England goals have been scored in the second half (82%), including his 90th minute victor in the last match against Slovenia.

Michael McGovern pulled off a stunning save to claw a Wagner header away three minutes later as the Germans laid siege to the hosts' goal, before a second header from the Hoffenheim striker cannoned off the woodwork on 17 minutes.

Home friendlies against Germany and Brazil next month will give a good indication of just how much work is needed over the next seven months for England, a constant work in progress.

In the end, the very end, Harry Kane popped up with an injury-time victor, but the goal was missed by thousands of fans who had long since given up and gone home.

Harry Kane feels he is in the best form of his professional career after following up his stunning September with the victor for England against Slovenia.

"Tonight highlighted where we are", said Southgate.

"I know from when I worked in Qatar with him he was saying how good Kane was". It's hard to bring how you play in the Premier League into global football.

"It [criticism of Hart] comes with the scrutiny of playing for England". He was considered one of the finest goalkeepers in the world at the time but his last of four major worldwide tournaments ended in disappointment following a freak goal from Brazil's Ronaldinho in 2002.

Gareth Southgate has admitted that the onus is on his England players to entertain supporters, having been booed during the win over Slovenia.

In the centre, Eric Dier plays a physical holding role for Spurs and has generally performed well for England. "They don't tend to play overseas, their familiarity with worldwide camps isn't great".

"But with England, people still think you are going to win it without your two best players".
