"We have another game on Sunday [against Lithuania] and we need to keep doing what we're doing and working hard".

Question marks persist over Joe Hart in goal and over the quality of England's options in wide areas. But it's going to happen and when it does I'm sure it will absolutely huge.

Pearce, who previously managed the England U21 team and was briefly caretaker of the senior side, played up front to Shilton and has called for Hart to replicate the legendary goalkeeper's attitude on the pitch.

Former England worldwide Chris Waddle, commentating on the Slovenia match for BBC 5 Live, said: "I can't think of anything to say, it's that bad".

'We were very clear in our mind how we wanted to evolve and we've got an extra game to do that now, which is a great opportunity to look at a couple of things.

"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".

More experimentation is likely, in terms of tactics and personnel, as Southgate looks to coax an exciting performance to sweep away memories of Thursday's torturous 1-0 win over Slovenia. Then make the team as good as we possibly can and that's what I intend to do. Made intelligent runs and was the only Three Lions' player to even remotely stretch the otherwise comfortable visitors.

England, which hasn't missed a World Cup since 1994, could still be joined in Russian Federation next year by neighbor Scotland.

Earlier on Tuesday, the ministry denied another report that it had struck civilian settlements in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib .

"Tonight highlighted where we are", said Southgate.

Seeing as England haven't won the famous gold trophy since 1966.we ask whether you can name every manager to win the trophy since this tournament 51 years ago?

England haven't been a major force in football for 50 years; the only time they've reached a final of a major tournament was when the World Cup was held in its own back yard in 1966.

England have comfortably coasted through qualifying winning seven of nine.

"We want him to be in fantastic form but we want everyone to contribute".

In-form Spurs striker Kane added: "It was frustrating at times out there".

"We should enjoy this".

"Now we have to really see how we can compete against these big teams".
