England fans 'should be proud' of team qualifying for 2018 World Cup

The Three Lions will face Germany for the third time in less than 20 months on November 10 after the reigning World Cup winners secured their place in Russian Federation with a 3-1 victory over Northern Ireland at Windsor Park last night.

An England performance as ponderous as it was underwhelming meant those in attendance seemed more excited about paper planes landing around the pitch than matters on it.

"I think he is brilliant", the Baggies midfielder told Shoot.

"Was it the performance we wanted and the night we wanted? All I have to do is keep winning football matches". We want to stay unbeaten, we want to go and win the game. The objective was to qualify for Russian Federation.

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.

And Southgate believes it is no coincidence it happened again on Thursday.

"We wore them down", he added.

Asked to comment on the timeline, Vance noted that he returned Kasowitz's campaign donation before meeting with him. A source told Politico that they've been using it "daily" and "pretty much... since they got here".

"We should enjoy tonight, it's no easy thing getting to a World Cup". "Absolutely crucial for everybody - probably quite critical for the economy as well".

"I feel good", Hart said.

"Late goals have been key and we knew they had to win".

Both players are strong and will run all day, but at club level their tireless "fetch-and-carry" attributes are supplemented by the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Christian Eriksen, who do possess the qualities needed to unlock well-organised defences. That says it all about England's current standing in world football.

Srecko Katanec confirmed Sunday's game will be his last in charge of the national team - a match he approaches frustrated by the result, but proud of his side's display. "They maybe didn't really deserve this victory but they scored a goal".

Lewis Cook, Dominic Solanke, Freddie Woodman and Kyle Walker-Peters have stepped up to England Under-21s after helping the Under-20s to World Cup glory in South Korea in the summer, while Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell, Demarai Gray and Mason Holgate are other names to look out for. I thought we did that well.

Rashford does not get weighed down by the fear-factor that appears to stifle team-mates Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sterling and will only get better.
