England must not freeze again in Russian Federation, says Redknapp

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

England qualified in contrasting fashion, scraping past Slovenia 1-0 thanks to Harry Kane's injury-time strike in a poor team performance at Wembley Stadium.

England have already played Germany this year, going down 1-0 in a March friendly in Dortmund to a Lucas Podolski strike in his last global.

Seaman played a key role in England making the semi-finals at Euro 96 after saving two penalties, one against Scotland in the group stage and the next in a quarter-final shoot-out against Spain.

KYLE WALKER: Struggled both with passing and positional play. Much as Eriksen does for Spurs, Lallana is England's key man because he offers something different, a creative quality lacking elsewhere. "And he's playing on the left, right-footed, so he can go either side which he's shown a couple of times as well".

Clemence's global career might have been even more distinguished were it not for the presence of Shilton and an underwhelming period for the England team. Henderson should be able to adapt to a Pochettino-style approach. When Rose gets fit he's as good as anybody in his position and Bertrand is more than capable of matching his levels when called upon.

At centre-back, there are no Tottenham options aside from moving Dier deeper.

Despite one of the most boring home displays of recent years on Thursday night, Glenn launched a passionate defence of the commitment of England's players and refuted suggestions that some care more about success with their clubs than with the national side.

It's relatively hard to find many players who don't suit the system. Oxlade-Chamberlain gets the nod because he's as versatile as an egg.

The 19-year-old impressed for the Three Lions last month with an enterprising cameo against Malta before claiming a goal and assist during the 2-1 win over Slovakia.

Arguably the biggest loser would be Raheem Sterling, although he was fielded as a No. 10 on Thursday, suggesting Southgate would happily field him as an inside-forward too. "They are young players we have to try to get behind".

England were heavily criticised for their performance against Slovenia, with the win only papering over the cracks.

Probably the same duration as the 2014 tournament when they were effectively eliminated after eight days, a humiliation that was nothing compared to what happened at the 2016 European Championships, and that defeat to Iceland.
