Getty Ray Wilkins believes it is the players who are at fault for England's struggles

City's bold approach to the match paid off, with them dominating proceedings as they underlined their Premier League title credentials with a 1-0 win over the champions.

Harry Kane feels he is in the best form of his professional career after following up his stunning September with the victor for England against Slovenia. I'd like to see England play three at the back throughout the tournament, so "traditional" full-backs aren't needed.

It is hard to recall a less dynamic Wembley display than that and the man in charge of improving matters is eager to find the right formula before next summer. And I don't mean in November when we play Germany and Brazil in friendlies, if we win or lose two games and everyone gets carried away.

"Regardless of personal achievements, I think it's really important that we smile tonight".

That is the last time England threatened to win a major competition, while the closest they have gone to replicating the World Cup-winning feat of 1966 came 27 years ago - a tournament when the pressure was on the now revered Sir Bobby Robson. "I think out of failure, and it was a failure, you learn from it and you hopefully build - and we are building and we will build that level of resilience", he said. Southgate would be foolish not to switch to the formation that makes his players most comfortable, starting Sunday against Lithuania. By the time he retired, Shilton had represented his country at three World Cups and two European Championships.

Southgate said: "Slovenia defended resolutely and we weren't as sharp as we'd like to be".

"Are we are going to become Spain in the next eight months?"

But Cahill insisted: "Those are things we can learn".

Harry Kane's 94th-minute victor did little to mask what had been a drab tie and Southgate admits that while he is keen to rotate his team, he is also thinking about coming home with three points.

"We should enjoy it, it's no easy thing getting to a World Cup".

"I'm extremely proud, not just for myself but for the team, for the nation", Kane said.

Ahead of the final 1-2 rounds of qualifying we've devised a tricky World Cup manager quiz for you all, which puts your knowledge to the test. "There are some other top countries around the world struggling to qualify".
