England finally securing their spot for upcoming World Cup 2018 in Russia following a late and dramatic victory over Slovenia on Thursday.
Playing in front of their home crowd at the majestic Wembley stadium, Three Lions didn’t have a convincing display as they were struggling to break down their opponent’s defense.
After a goalless first 45 minutes, things got more interesting after the break, notably as Slovenia looking really comfortably and creating many problems for the home team.
After looking like they will be heading for a draw, England came up with the needed goal, thanks to Tottenham Hotspur star forward, Harry Kane.
Despite not getting too many opportunities throughout the match, Kane’s persistence paid off in stoppage time as he pounced on Kyle Walker’s cross to give that long awaited goal.
No more goals were scored afterwards, as there’s not much time left for either teams to get themselves on the score sheet again after Kane’s late strike.
Meanwhile, defending champions, Germany also confirmed their advancement into the World Cup next year as Joachim Loew’s men comfortably defeating Northern Ireland 3-1.
The away team’s didn’t find much trouble in that match though as they found themselves taking two goals lead going into half time thanks to Sebastian Rudy and Sandro Wagner’s efforts.
Joshua Kimmich’s strike midway into the second half completed Germany’s dominance, while Northern Ireland only managed to pull one back in stoppage time through Josh Magennis.
