England line up friendlies against Germany, Brazil

Harry Kane scored late against Slovenia and Germany dominated Northern Ireland on Thursday as the two traditional powerhouses secured qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Not a great watch tonight England but enjoyed that goal from Kane!

The Tottenham striker, named England captain for the night, was one of the few players to emerge with any credit as he continued his hot streak.

With Wayne Rooney retired, the hopes of a nation are transitioning swiftly to Kane, who has followed up successive Premier League golden boots with a streak of 14 goals in nine games for club and country. 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.

But Kane is adamant England have enough quality in other positions to help him shoulder the burden in Russian Federation.

It is not just Kane's goals that make him so special, he contributes to the team in every way. "They are young players we have to try to get behind".

"I think you've got to be realistic looking at our historical performance", Glenn told the BBC, having earlier admitted that England "do not travel well" and are still undermined by "a brittleness in unfamiliar circumstances".

"I've managed to shoulder that for 20 years", he added.

Enthusiasm for the national team continues to wane and Southgate has previously warned there is "no magic wand" to improve matters.

The likes of Portugal, Holland and Italy might cast an envious eye at the Three Lions' qualification with a trip to Lithuania still to go but Thursday's arduous Wembley win over Slovenia - a grind on the pitch and a trial in the stands - felt anything but celebratory.

The play-off matches take place in November and all the 32 teams who have made it by the time of the World Cup draw in Moscow on December 1.

"Everyone was disappointed with the performance, none more so than me". Walking off the field gutted at the last tournament, as a player I understand how people feel and it's our job to change that.

"Are we are going to become Spain in the next eight months?"

"We were very clear in our mind how wanted to evolve and we've got an extra game to do that now, which is a great opportunity to look at a couple of things".

"The fearless mentality - that's the way he is at the minute".

England hot shot Harry Kane may be in unstoppable form but he does not want to shoulder expectation alone at the World Cup.

And Glenn said while he accepted Thursday's Slovenia match "wasn't the prettiest of games", the side were still a work in progress.

"England have qualified for a World Cup and that's a big deal". But at least one routine has ended: Their fans no longer expect.

"I spoke with Joe a while back and I said to him at the European Championships last summer, the ball went in the back of the net against Iceland, and he didn't get up and berate his back line".
