England already ensured their 2018 World Cup in Russia and they ended their qualifying campaign with a 1-0 victory at Vilniaus LFF stadionas.
It was a very poor performance, indeed but thanks to Harry Kane’s penalty goal in the first half of the match to rescue the squad after Dele Alli was fouled in the 27th minute and that impresses England’s manager Gareth Southgate.
“He’s scoring goals for us and he’s leading from the front. We need that leadership through the team. He’s certainly impressed me with everything he’s done.” Southgate stated on Kane’s captaincy
Meanwhile, Southgate gave debuts to Tottenham Hotspur Harry Winks and Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.
“It’s been a dream week for me. To be called up into the seniors was fantastic. I nearly scored. The keeper made a great save off my left foot, if that had gone in it would have been brilliant. I was quite surprised when I got the call to step in, but obviously I’m happy to step in. It was brilliant for me, yeah.” Winks expressed
Right now, Kane has 15 goals in his last 10 matches in all competitions for his club and country and England ended the group with eight wins and two draws from 10 games.
