Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane must play together - Paul Merson

Southgate calls for England support

Tom Lawrence scored his first worldwide goal to earn Wales a vital 1-0 victory in Georgia on Friday and keep them in the hunt for a place at next year's World Cup.

"We've got a World Cup to look forward to now and hopefully people have the same dreams as me, we can stick together and make something happen". The way he wants his squad to be, he wants a young and energetic squad all pulling in the right direction.

English football is not short of talented young players and there is time for some of them to emerge and stake their claim.

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. We have to give them the belief and the backing to help them achieve. What are we really good at?

Kane's stoppage-time victor against Slovenia at Wembley was his 14th goal in his last nine matches for club and country and as long as he is in the side and in this kind of form, England have half a chance. Since then they've only reached the semi-finals only once (1990), while they've failed to even progress through to the quarter-finals since 2006, with their last showing a humiliating group stage exit in 2014.

"I would love us to be dominating with 80 per cent possession against the best teams of the world, but there is little evidence of that over the last five (years) - there's no real evidence of that over the last 50 years!" Tonight highlighted where we are. The talismanic Tottenham striker snatched Southgate's side the win they needed to secure qualification for Russian Federation 2018.

"We played a team who have only conceded four goals in the competition - and you saw why", Southgate added.




"We are not going to become Spain in the next eight months". "I like what I see".

"I'm able to rationalise it all". "It was hard for the crowd - we appreciate them coming - but the game was hard".

"But I was given the job to keep things steady a year ago".

"But we're there [at the World Cup] and now we build and we look to where we can improve all the time".

Harry Kane described it as a dream come true after England stumbled to qualification for the World Cup.
