Once he got his chance in the England side, the one he broke into whilst at Villa. Now that he has had his chance and played well he has kept it his spot.

And rightly so

He got his chance at Villa and was playing well for England, on a few occasions being our best player, before and during the Euro's. Couldnt keep his spot then. He was even sub sub against Denmark. I know GS said it was tactical, but i dont believe he would do that to Sterling or Rashford.

Playing well representing England whilst at Villa - Couldn't nail down a place. Playing well representing England whilst at Man City -  Seems to have secured a spot. It may be coincidence, but there's an obvious difference and its not that he wasn't playing well for England previously.

I can't remember so many "international breaks" when I was younger. There are too many disruptions to club football with all these extra tournaments and qualifiers.

Indeed, I'm pretty sure international fixtures were just played during the week. I don't recall friendlies being played during the season either.

Same with the so called Champions league, too many meaningless games, just go back to being a real champions tournament and a knock out at all rounds with no seeded teams.

Bah Humbug!

I agree with this 100%. He is a fantastic goal scorer, we only have to look at the record books for evidence of that. Something is clearly wrong with him and, personally, I do not know who the replacement should be if this run of bad form continues from Kane.

I think Kane  was overused by club and country a couple of years ago and is basically shot.  His ankles are now weak and I don't think he can withstand the attention he gets in the box; Lewandowski isn't always on teh shoulder of the central defenders.  He needs a rest so that his body can recover and take a buffeting again.

It really is embarrassing that the likes of San Marino litter these qualification rounds..

Well done England. 10-15 years ago we’d have struggled with that fixture and had a point or unconvincing win.

No we wouldn't. The worst we've ever done against San Marino is won 5-0 in 2012, 2014 and 2021. Back in 2013 we beat them 8-0 away from home so not much different to tonight considering they were reduced to ten men as well. In 1993 we beat them 13-1 aggregate over two games.

Man Ure have, possibly, missed a trick there, imo

This is why I think Tottenham were smart to move early for Conte, Levy may have seen this coming......

Not a great scoreline, I don't really get what the non elite nations get from results like this. Should we have stepped off the gas at some point out of respect?

It also emphasises why I don't think you can compare mens and womens scoring records at international level. You get quite a few journalists and bloggers who get offended when you hear "England's record appearance maker" or "record goalscorer" to say "actuallllyyyy, eh Women's game", but score lines like this are unheard of in men's UEFA comps. We were all stunned by the 10-0 vs San Marino, but the women have now scored 10 or more goals in 3 of their recent qualifiers, as well as hitting 8 in a other, while Northern Ireland have also hit 11 and 9 in recent games.

The gap between the Elite Women's sides in Europe and the lesser counterparts seems to be double that in the men's game.

More like quadruple. If England men had beaten Latvia 5-0 it would be seen as a good result. The women's world cup qualifiers are a joke, large amounts of complete humiliations. Not a great advert for the women's game.

As much as the BBC are desperate to push the women's game (this match was deemed as higher priority than the Premier League games last night on their football page), matches like this are an absolute joke.

It makes including San Marino in the men's qualifying look competitive.

I thought i moaned a lot but dear me! How can anyone complain that an England team (weather it be men,women, schoolboys disabled or whoever) win 20-0? Well i for one thoroughly enjoyed it, sitting there not getting worked up, getting annoyed or throwing things at the TV. I am sure the women playing and the people in the ground enjoyed themselves aswell. I had forgotten that is what its all about, enjoying it!!

You can ask questions about the health of the international game in its current format. Armenia lost 19-0 to Belgium a few days before. I support England but there is a point where you feel something needs to change.
