Southgate understands fans' frustrations as England toil to flattering win

Harry Kane Kane explains why he does not have a Spurs release clause
Vera Richards | 03 September, 2017, 05:46

"I understand the reaction, but we have to stay focused as a group".

"In the first half, it was the latter for Raheem - but he will bounce back from that".

The Tottenham striker's 53rd-minute opener looked like it would be the only difference between the Three Lions and hosts ranked joint 190th in the world, but three more followed in the final five minutes - a second for Kane and one apiece for Ryan Bertrand and Danny Welbeck.

"When that opening goal doesn't come playing against a packed defence, you've got to show some real courage and stick to the game plan, be patient and wait for your opportunities".

"We knew if we just kept moving it wide, moving it wide the chances would come". "When we got the ball into the areas that we'd worked on during the week, we managed to do that". I'll be interested to see who we get in but I'm not that interested in other teams.

"But I've played in so many qualifiers and watched so many qualifiers, and I don't remember many of them being free-flowing champagne football".

Even at 1-0 up, with Kane striking eight minutes after the break, England fans remained singularly unimpressed. "My job now is to try to score for England in these next two games and go from there".

There was sustained frustration at England's repeated failure to escape from local clutches until that late spree.

As ever with England, the bicep around which the captain's armband will be stretched is focusing attentions, with Kane and Jordan Henderson among those in contention to succeed Rooney as full-time skipper.

Kane, however, defended the 46-year-old's tactics.

It's also the right time for Kane to get back on the scoresheet.

"It takes a lot of commitment to reach the top", said Kane, who has now scored five goals in his last three England games. We've had some good teams in the past but we've still won nothing. He knows what he wants, he's been around for a long time.

Tottenham are yet to win at their temporary home of Wembley this season and Kane said: "We seem to do all right there for England, so for me personally and for the Spurs boys it'd be good to win and take that confidence into the Premier League".

With three games remaining, unbeaten England lead Group F by two points from Slovakia and victory on Monday at Wembley would nearly certainly secure at least a play-off spot for next year's finals in Russian Federation.
