Goalkeeper Joe Hart Dismisses Criticism After Latest England Show

Gareth Southgate embraces Harry Kane after the striker scored a late equaliser in Scotland

The victory over Slovenia means that England have booked their place in the competition in 2018.

England's current number-one Joe Hart has suffered major criticism on social media for his apparent decline in form, whilst Jordan Pickford is the only goalkeeper to have European football to prove his worth at the top level this season.

"They might find it hard to find much love for me with my history with England!" Marcus Rashford, England's brightest player against Slovenia, would struggle to find a place, but ultimately he doesn't look entirely comfortable out wide and probably will be a backup to Kane regardless of the system.

So underwhelming was this encounter that fans seemed more excited about paper planes landing on the pitch, with England offering precious little to shout about until captain Kane directed home to secure a stodgy 1-0 win in stoppage time.

"We're in a position where there's no way we would dismiss any creative player".

Spanish court opens sedition probe of Catalonia officials for indepdendence bid
The Catalan government said the vote in support of independence was almost 90%, but official results have not yet been released. Catalonia continues to take steps toward a unilateral declaration of independence .

England defender Gary Cahill was relieved to see Kane's latest display of predatory finishing put a flattering gloss on his team's spluttering display.

'For sure we'll make changes but want to get the balance right, ' Southgate added. England has no one like Toni Kroos, Luka Modrić, Marco Verratti, Andrés Iniesta, Eden Hazard or N'Golo Kante who can dominate and control midfield (and that's just in Europe).

Joe Hart insisted he ignored his critics after delivering a man-of-the-match performance as England qualified for the World Cup.

Butland has though proven that he is ready to play a more prominent role for the national team.

Gareth Southgate's men needed last gasp winners to defeat Slovakia in September 2016 and against Slovenia on Thursday night, whereas they also needed a last minute goal to draw against Scotland in June. Seems to be uncomfortable when being relied upon to play out from the back. They don't have Champions League-winning medals throughout this group, they don't have Premier League-winning medals.
