England 20-1 for World Cup after qualifying

England qualified for the World Cup finals with a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Wembley thanks to Harry Kane's injury-time goal.

The captain came to the rescue of those punters who backed England at 1-3 in what was a poor performance from Gareth Southgate's side. The Three Lions are generally available at 20-1 to win the World Cup.

Kane, not for the first time, was England's saviour and bet365 rate the Tottenham hotshot 11-10 favourite to top-score for Southgate's men in next summer's finals. Dele Alli and Marcus Rashford are 6-1 shots, while it's 25-1 that no England player notches.

Scotland kept their qualification hopes alive with a dramatic 1-0 triumph over ten-man Slovakia with Chris Martin the Tartan Army hero, and Gordon Strachan's men will finish second in Group F should they beat Slovenia away on Sunday.

Holders Germany beat Northern Ireland 3-1 at Windsor Park.
