Gareth Southgate backs Raheem Sterling to win over England fans

England and Germany qualified for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation by virtue of wins on Thursday night, October 5.

Kane has thus far scored 11 goals in nine appearances in all competitions this season and it has been claimed that Spanish giants Real Madrid are potential suitors for the 24-year-old.

Harry Kane secured qualification for Gareth Southgate's team in Russian Federation next summer with a late tap-in in a 1-0 win over Slovenia on Thursday night.

"Congratulations to England", he said.

"He is the in-form player in world football, in terms of goals scored and how he is playing", Gerrard told Sky Sports News. Harry gets put in that bracket and deserves to be.

"The reality is what I don't want players to be comfortable".

"Harry is just brilliant at what he does and he is just one of the best out there. I don't think having an armband on your arm makes any difference to how you play or if you score goals or not". "Long may it continue in an England shirt".


Southgate praised Kane's leadership but said he was happy to keep sharing the armband among different players.

Southgate confirmed that Tottenham striker Kane will lead Three Lions on Thursday night but England head coach Southgate hasn't decided on the long-term destination of the armband.

Drafted into the squad to take Delph's place, 21-year-old Spurs midfielder Harry Winks will hope to get his first taste of senior worldwide football.

The English men only needed two points from their final two matches - with a trip to Lithuania to come on Sunday - but took all three thanks to Kane's 94th-minute intervention.

"He's captain tomorrow, which he knew a month ago".

Slovenia can still mathematically secure a play-off place, but must beat Scotland and hope Slovakia slip up at home to minnows Malta.

England offered little attacking threat on a dreary and subdued night at Wembley Stadium that was lit up only in the fourth minute of additional time when Kane latched onto Kyle Walker's cross and struck under goalkeeper Jan Oblak.
