Germany coach Joachim Loew said before his side's game in Belfast that he wants to complete qualifying with 10 wins from 10 games, a feat accomplished previously by only Spain before it won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Jordan Henderson, Wayne Rooney, Gary Cahill, Joe Hart and Kane have rotated the captaincy under Southgate, but Sherwood thinks Kane has earned the right to take it on permanently.

"Raheem is a tough lad", Southgate said. I watch his interviews a lot and I have also met him on a couple of occasions. "He has matured and is improving all the time". I would never say yes. We saw potential leaders in the group at the start.

"It's not a relief, I always thought we'd achieve the objective (of qualifying)".

"All of those experiences will stand them in good stead". Teams won't be able to cope with us with two up front.

"It's not just about the matchday - it's everything around the camp, thinking how you integrate the squad and how you involve other people and the moments to step forward, leading by example, leading by having a quiet word with people".

"He made big saves at important times so that's where his experience comes through".

Slovenia had a chance in the 19th minute when Ilicic delivered a stunning ball into Bezjak, but the number 14 could not make the most of the opportunity as England, who appeared to go off the boil after a positive start, survived another risky moment.

Since Kane returned to the global fold at the end of last season following a spate of injuries, his goals have helped to keep Gareth Southgate's England side on course for qualification.

"I will go out there and try and do my job for the team, try and score goals and try and win the match. We haven't got players who have proved themselves on that stage".

Spurs star Kane scored 13 goals for club and country in September, a return that matched the most prolific calendar months enjoyed by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in their illustrious careers.

But then Harry Kane stepped up in the 94th minute.
