Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane must play together - Paul Merson

Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane must play together - Paul Merson

Captain Harry Kane grabbed an injury-time victor at Wembley to secure top spot in Group F but it was another unconvincing display from Southgate's players and the former Middlesbrough boss knows they must improve over the next eight months.

England have qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation following a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Wembley.

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

"But we're working to change the generation and we've brought some young players through". They're giving absolutely everything they've got.

Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford are both excellent players as they have shown this season in the Premier League, but they struggled to make an impact last night.

"They're a work in progress".

"I would like to see them play three at the back", he said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

Kane captained England and was thankful to Kyle Walker for a fine assist, capitalising on some (rare) poor goalkeeping by Jan Oblak. But we drew 0-0 in that campaign in Finland and got killed by everybody, but that was also a critical point.

"I also have to credit our opponents because they made it hard".

"In the end, for English football it is crucial to be at a World Cup". "Absolutely crucial for everybody - probably quite critical for the economy as well". We're full of admiration for the guy who calls it a good eight seconds before it crosses the line. "And then it's, 'We come into training, am I a shoo-in to get in the team or do I have to push a bit harder because I have a couple snapping at my heels?" We have a huge test on Monday night against the Republic of Ireland.

"I wish them luck at the World Cup".

With qualification wrapped up with a game to spare, England plays their final game of Group F with a trip to Lithuania on Sunday.

"What's important is that the lads who have led the team think about integrating the squad, the moments to step forward, the moments to have a quiet word with people".
