Kane revels in World Cup qualification

Posted: 6 October 2017 Time: 09:00 am

Harry Kane insists the result is all that matters after England edged Slovenia to book their place in the 2018 World Cup finals.

The Tottenham striker’s injury-time goal was enough to earn the Three Lions a 1-0 win at Wembley on Thursday to wrap up top spot in the group with one game to spare.

And while England looked far from their best against the Slovenians, Kane insists the most important thing is that they are through to Russia 2018.

"[Qualification] is all that matters," Kane told ITV. "It was frustrating at times and we had to be patient.

"In the last 10 minutes, they were getting tired and we created a few opportunities - I was happy to finally put one in the back of the net at the end.

"It's amazing to get there. It's no easy feat these days [to qualify]. There's a lot of top countries around the world struggling to qualify. We're all delighted.

"That's job done for us. We have another game on Sunday [against Lithuania] and we need to keep doing what we're doing and working hard."
