A lot of good teams won't go to that World Cup, so we are pleased but still know there is room for improvement.
"If you look at the last time we won anything for England it was a long, long time ago".
Nine of Harry Kane's 11 England goals have been scored in the second half (82%), including his 90th minute victor in the last match against Slovenia.
Kane's strike against Slovenia was England's third stoppage time goal which earned five qualifying points.
England dragged themselves over the finish line with a 93rd-minute victor by in-form striker Harry Kane. But John Stones has played in a three-man defence under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and is flawless for bringing the ball forward, while Gary Cahill captains league champions Chelsea from the left-centre role of a three.
Pearce, who previously managed the England U21 team and was briefly caretaker of the senior side, played up front to Shilton and has called for Hart to replicate the legendary goalkeeper's attitude on the pitch.
"For sure we'll make changes but want to get the balance right", Southgate said.
"It isn't down to just me, it's down to the whole team", Kane said.
I see Harry being one of the best in the world in terms of form. The first time most at Wembley noticed Chamberlain was playing was when he was substituted in the 64th minute by Jesse Lingard, who hasn't started a Premier League or Champions League match for Manchester United this season.
And Thursday demonstrated that for all the creative potential of certain players, they lack a plan when it comes to possession play. He was considered one of the finest goalkeepers in the world at the time but his last of four major global tournaments ended in disappointment following a freak goal from Brazil's Ronaldinho in 2002.
Harry Kane's late goal saved England's blushes on Thursday and, as well as defending his group, Southgate called for patience and understanding with the players. When Spurs or England loses possession, he becomes the first defender.
And Stones said: "We have the players to do it". The more we can play football which excites people and scores goals, the more we will win people over.
