Harry Kane: England "have to do better"

Tottenham midfielder Alli shows off his acrobatic skills in the centre circle during training

The 24-year-old striker made it 15 goals in his last 10 matches for club and country by slotting home what proved to be the first-half victor after Dele Alli won a penalty.

"Kane said: "[Winks must] keep working hard. "When we are in semi-finals, finals, ".

Straight after the restart, debutant Harry Winks' dreams almost came true when his initial shot from just inside the area rebound back to him for a second attempt but the keeper parried the ball for a corner.

What's more, the Three Lions have drawn with Spain and beaten Portugal in two of their last four non-competitive fixtures.

He played a solid game for England, and nearly got himself on the scoresheet.

"For me one of the big things playing for England isn't necessarily the opposition, but whether you can carry the England shirt".

Of the fringe players given a chance, Winks was quietly impressive, moving the ball around from a deep midfield position smartly in much the same way as he has done in his relatively brief domestic career.

The 21-year-old Tottenham midfielder was called into the Three Lions squad as a late replacement for the injured Fabian Delph and proceeded to play the full 90 minutes of the 1-0 victory in rain-lashed Vilnius. There is a distinct lack of style and set system whenever England play, which is in stark contract to the likes of Spain and Germany.

England do not have enough creative players or technicians to "out play" and dominate the other top nations in world football, and so should take advantage of the strengths they do have. I can see Dier is trying to move the ball forwards with more urgency and clearly someone at Tottenham is helping him work on this.

Shelvey has the ability to create a chance from very little.

It was an all too familiar tale for England in Lithuania.

Southgate's side will take on Germany and Brazil next month to continue preparations for the tournament in Russian Federation.

Dele Alli has built his reputation on providing moments of magic, a goalscoring touch, and exceptional movement. The youngster proved the only semblance of entertainment for England all game.

Harry Maguire couldn't score, but gave an assured performance on his England debut!

"Three at the back worked in some aspects but we are still open in counter-attack".

England: Butland 6; Keane 6, Maguire 6, Stones 6; Trippier 6, Winks 8, Henderson 6, Cresswell 6; Alli 6 (Lingard 5), Kane 7, Rashford 6 (Sturridge 5).

For the world cup Southgate is expecting Danny Rose to be back and fit for action.

Marcus Rashford ended the half on a strong note, dazzling the Lithuania defenders with his skills on the right-flank but the mercurial forward was unable to double England's lead as the teams went into the interval with a 1-0 scoreline in favour of the hosts.
