  • Japan secured their place at the World Cup

Thursday night's win against Slovenia ensured qualification for the finals in Russian Federation with a match to spare, yet the manner of the 1-0 defeat of Slovenia underlined concerns about the Three Lions.

The England boss is determined to test his players as much as possible before the tournament next summer in an effort to bring them up to standard.

Winger Raheem Sterling has the determination to replicate his domestic form for the England national side, manager Gareth Southgate has said ahead of Thursday's penultimate World Cup qualifier against Slovenia.

"They've done OK. We haven't learned anything new", he told Omnisport.

Hart conceded that it was hard for the England supporters at Wembley as the team misfired, but it could not detract from his delight at qualification.

Taking into account that only 1 team received a ticket to the final part of the World Cup in the group F, the chances of the Slovenian team to be the lucky one are practically zero.

England's first serious opportunity of the match came in the 26th minute when Jordan Henderson found space inside the Slovenia box, but the Liverpool captain saw his effort saved by Oblak.

Kane fired just wide of the post 20 minutes from time, but it did not take too long for Slovenia to gain a foothold once again.

The game, which will also raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund, is the first time Brazil have played at Wembley since 2013.

Germany coach Joachim Loew said before his side's game in Belfast that he wants to complete qualifying with 10 wins from 10 games, a feat accomplished previously by only Spain before it won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

"We were out there talking a few times, trying to keep each other going, to keep the pressure on in the second half".

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.

England will host Slovenia at 19:45 BST on Thursday 5 October 2017.
