Goalkeeper Joe Hart Dismisses Criticism After Latest England Show

A youthful Three Lions squad secured their place in next year's Russian Federation finals thanks to Harry Kane's late striker against Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday.

England's wretched display somehow ended on an upbeat note when Kane stretched to convert Kyle Walker's cross in stoppage-time. He was also the man closest to Diego Maradona's "Hand of God" goal as Argentina defeated England in 1986.

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. "We've got some good characters and personalities (in the squad) that maybe the public don't necessarily understand fully or know properly".

"It is an awesome feeling to score, no matter what the time, and it's great to go through to the World Cup".

While commenting on the performances of Hart, Pearce said, "I spoke to Joe a while back and I said to him that at the Euros last summer, the ball went into the back of the net against Iceland and he didn't get up and berate his back line".

I am my own motivator and I'll continue to push myself to the limits that I've got. That was a year and a half ago and I wasn't sure.

The inclusion of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, not even good enough to start for Liverpool since his transfer from Arsenal's substitutes' bench, underlined the paucity of England's creative department.

United States hints at the future of the Iranian nuclear deal
Trump is expected to announce next week ahead of a deadline to report on whether Iran is complying with the agreement. Opponents say, it went too far in easing sanctions without requiring Iran to end its nuclear program permanently.


Southgate can now start planning in earnest for Russian Federation and start putting his final squad in place.

ALEX OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN: Looks completely devoid of form and confidence and was rightfully hooked just after the hour mark.

Seeing as England haven't won the famous gold trophy since 1966.we ask whether you can name every manager to win the trophy since this tournament 51 years ago? "We want to learn thing from the game and don't want to waste that opportunity".

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

"We have qualified for a World Cup with one game to go".

And Redknapp is not alone in reserving judgement on the team's efforts until watching them try to cope with the pressure of delivering on the biggest stage of all.

Slovenia coach Srecko Katanec could only laugh as Walker cut out Oblak's throw and cross for Kane, whose shot had too much for the otherwise impressive goalkeeper at the death. So naturally they don't expect. I think that's really important.
