England line up friendlies against Germany, Brazil

But there was nothing Oblak could do about Kane's late victor, the cross from former Spurs teammate Walker flawless for him to tap in his 14th goal of the season for club and country.

"England players do not travel well".

Former England worldwide Chris Waddle, commentating on the Slovenia match for BBC 5 Live, said: "I can't think of anything to say, it's that bad. It's blindingly obvious we could have played better - but we are there", England manager Gareth Southgate said after the match. "I think a World Cup in Russian Federation, from what I saw in the Confederations Cup, will be a really good tournament".

England's 1-0 win at home and Germany's 3-1 triumph in Belfast were enough to guarantee they will finish atop their respective qualifying groups, earning automatic advancement to next summer's tournament.

England haven't been a major force in football for 50 years; the only time they've reached a final of a major tournament was when the World Cup was held in its own back yard in 1966.

"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". The four-time world champions also maintained their proud unbeaten away record in World Cup qualifiers – a run spanning an incredible 47 matches dating back to 1934.

If that doesn't occur then the trip to Lithuania will certainly be a lot more stressful than necessary.

The 47-year-old announced on Saturday that he has put his faith in Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland, with their being no pressure as England have already qualified.

"For sure we'll make changes but want to get the balance right", Southgate said.

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

To make things worst for him, Valencia received a yellow card so he will not play in Ecuador's next game against Argentina.

England dragged themselves over the finish line with a 93rd-minute victor by in-form striker Harry Kane.

"We should enjoy this".

"I'm extremely proud, not just for myself but for the team, for the nation", Kane said.

He has now struck 11 times in 22 appearances for his country and looks one of the only genuine world class talents available to Southgate.
