England qualified for the World Cup 2018 in style with a 1-0 narrow win over Slovenia.

Needing just a draw to confirm the same, the match was poised to end in a goal-less draw before Harry Kane strike in the injury time to leave no doubts to keep the 100%-win record of his team at home alive.

The Three Lions are unbeaten in the tournament with 7 wins and 2 draws. But, they are also one of the best defensive units having conceded just 3 goals in the competition so far.

On the other hand, Lithuania are out of the qualification race and there is little incentive to play for.

The team has managed just 1 win in the competition so far, which came against a lowly Malta on matchday 3. Also, they were unbeaten until then, having draws the likes of Scotland and Slovenia in the opening two games. However, the team lost 5 and drew 1.
