It took 93 minutes for England to break the deadlock against a resilient Slovenia side in a vital World Cup qualifying match at Wembley on Thursday evening.
And it was Harry Kane who yet again found the back of the net to save England’s blushes in a rather painful night for the national side.
At half-time, fans in the stadium and at home were quite rightly concerned and frankly bored with the game. In fact, broadcasters failed to find an England highlight to assess during the break, such was the lack of activity on the field.
The second half was more of a battle, with Slovenia also needing a result to keep their qualification hopes alive. With 5 minutes to go, Joe Hart was forced into a double save, when Tim Matavz was in on goal.
And just when it looked like England had run out of ideas, up popped the man in form Kane, who latched onto the end of a Kyle Walker cross to spark wild, and rather relieved, celebrations from supporters.
Following his last minute heroics, England fans took to Twitter to thank Harry Kane for ensuring qualification…
Harry Kane saving the day for England, get used to it.
