England book spot at 2018 World Cup, thanks to Harry Kane

Joe Hart of England celebrates victory with John Stones during the FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier between England and Slovenia at Wembley Stadium

As for the hosts, seven of England's last nine goals had been scored or assisted by a Tottenham player so it was no surprise when Kane had their first meaningful, but ultimately unsuccessful, effort.

But the 54-year-old has warned about the effect that such pressure has on the national side.

Germany, who have won four World Cups, last visited Wembley four years ago when Per Mertesacker scored to give them a 1-0 victory as both countries began their preparations for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. "We have a game plan and we will see where it takes us", said Coleman.

The close call energised a previously lethargic England and they went close again when a remarkable double block by Slovenia captain Bostjan Cesar denied Raheem Sterling.

Expectation is always high around the England camp once they arrive at major tournaments, but there has been criticism of the current squad on the back of a forgettable showing at Euro 2016.

"I have known him for a long time".

Kevin De Bruyne recalls forcing through Chelsea exit for one reason
This is in the future, which nobody knows, but right now I am very happy to have made this decision'. I arrived at the age of 19, 20 and remained five years at Chelsea .

'My job is not to keep the players happy, ' he added.

After winning the Premier League Golden Boot award for the past two seasons, and netting six times already this season, there have been inevitable transfer rumours linking Kane with a move to Real Madrid. Slovenia is one of the teams in contention - it sits just one point behind Slovakia, as does Scotland.

If Slovenia fail to beat England tonight (which is the likely outcome), and Scotland beat Slovakia at home, that leaves us wanting Scotland not to beat Slovenia on Monday.

HARRY KANE is still to join the world's best players according to Slovenia boss Srecko Katanec. The Three Lions needed a victory to guarantee their qualification for the World Cup but were very, very, very, very poor, and only in the 94th minute they were able to get a goal thanks to a Kyle Walker assist.

"Anyone with any knowledge in football will know how tough it's going to be [against] a team even England found hard to beat".

But Merson says to beat the best teams in the world, the pair need to play together up top. "It's all down to the players".
