England line up friendlies against Germany, Brazil

Harry Kane insists being named England captain for their qualifier against Slovenia will not affect his form

Following Denmark's 1-0 win in Montenegro, Poland leads by three points over Denmark, and it needs a point from the last-round match on Sunday against Montenegro in Warsaw to automatically qualify as the group victor.

Victory at Wembley will secure passage to Russian Federation for Gareth Southgate's men, but despite being on the brink of qualification - the England boss has warned his players not to take their own places for granted.

But Southgate said he took solace from the example of the late Bobby Robson, who went from national pariah to national treasure by leading England to the semi-finals at the 1990 World Cup in Italy. "He has matured and is improving all the time".

"Raheem is a tough lad", Southgate said. We saw potential leaders in the group at the start.

"It's not a relief, I always thought we'd achieve the objective [of qualifying]".

"All of those experiences will stand them in good stead".

"When we've been to tournaments in the past we haven't been able to keep possession, but a 3-5-2 or a 3-4-2-1 would give us more options in the middle of the park". It comes a little bit the wrong way around but I don't think he will be affected.

"Analysis is important because it's how it's interpreted - we've presented the Germans as a formidable opponent but not an invincible opponent", he said.

England's fans were not so much angry at their team's limp display as bored, with some sections of the home support more interested in paper aeroplanes, which were being thrown towards the pitch.

"There are plenty of leaders in this team and other guys are going to have a go to see how it feels". I think the danger when you don't have competition for places is twofold.

Without the suspended Dele Alli, the Three Lions looked utterly bereft of ideas until skipper Kane converted Kyle Walker's late on to score his 14th goal in nine games for club and country.

Scotland also went second in Group F, which could be significant once the final fixtures are played next Sunday.

But then Harry Kane stepped up in the 94th minute. Slovenia won four matches, lost two matches and two matches ended in draw out of eight matches.
