England boss Gareth Southgate weighing up surprise midfield role for John Stones

A truly world-class player scores goals when his team needs them; the captain popped up in the dying seconds to snatch a result; having been leading after 86 minutes, only to go 2-1 down, England came back to salvage something.

Robert Lewandowski also scored a hat trick as Group E leaders Poland eased to a 3-1 in Romania.

But that wasn't Group E's only treble.

Kane, 23, has enjoyed a great 2016/17 campaign for Spurs, scoring 29 goals in the Premier League.

"Two special free kicks and all of a sudden we're in stoppage time 2-1 down but it was unbelievable character to get that second which still leaves us top and in a great position". His late goal owed plenty to a brilliant cross by Raheem Sterling and some indeterminate goalkeeping by the constantly jittery Craig Gordon, but as Southgate noted after the game, Kane made his finish look easy.

"It was a huge moment for the team", said Southgate of Kane's first global goal in more than a year.

President Trump said UK election results were 'surprising'
May's gamble in calling an early election backfired spectacularly, as her Conservative Party lost its majority in Parliament. But now diversity is more important than ever as all asset classes react to the hung parliament in different ways.

"I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net".

Julian Draxler, one of the few regulars in a weakened Germany squad, opened the scoring before Wagner claimed his first worldwide goal five minutes later, and he didn't have to wait long before claiming his second, after fans indulged in Mexican waves.

Fans needed a bit of patience before the sixth arrived courtesy of Julian Brandt, whose first global goal came in the 72nd, and Wagner completed the rout with five minutes remaining.

The England boss also felt it was an important moment individually for Kane, whose sixth worldwide goal came just over a year after he netted his fifth, in a friendly against Turkey.

Northern Ireland improved their grip on second place as the Czech Republic dropped four points behind after being held to a 1-1 draw in Norway.

He saved the best until last, converting with a stunning scissor kick in the 82nd.

Cavs, Warriors Reportedly Won't Face 'Extra Discipline' After Wild Game 4
Sure, no National Basketball Association team that has ever faced a 3-0 deficit in the Finals has come back to win the series. But now the Warriors have a chance to win in at home, and judging from Saturday's crowd Dub Nation is behind them.

The former Manchester City man added to an early strike by Fatos Beciraj to secure a comfortable win for his side, while the visitors replied late through Ruslan Koryan. But substitute Kasper Dolberg sealed the win in the 81st.

Tottenham Hotspur frontman Kane, who notched his sixth worldwide goal, was delighted that his first experience of the England captaincy ended on a high note.

England hardly sparkled against an industrious and spirited Scotland side in the Group F qualifier but Southgate believes they showed they have the right personality to get results in testing environments.

Marek Hamsik produced a fine free kick of his own to help Slovakia to a crucial victory at LFF Stadium in Vilnius.

Ilicic gave his side the lead in first-half stoppage time with a left-footed curling effort from an acute angle and set up Milivoje Novakovic to seal the victory in the 84th.

Eight minutes after police were alerted, armed officers arrived at the scene and fired 46 rounds, killing all three men. Butt is considered by police to be the ringleader in the attack and had been arrested on fraud charges in the past.
