FA chief plays down England's World Cup chances

Martin Skrtel's 89th-minute own goal gave Scotland a 1-0 victory over Slovakia, which was reduced to 10 men from the 23rd minute when Robert Mak was shown a second yellow card for diving.

And former England U21 manager Pearce - who won 78 caps for the national team - believes Hart needs a bit more bite with his game, and should emulate one of England's greatest ever stoppers.

England manager Gareth Southgate has hinted that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could be set for a shock recall to the worldwide scene, as the Three Lions boss looks to add some much needed creativity to his central midfield.

However, he admitted there is work to do ahead of the finals, starting with the friendlies against Brazil and Germany in November, following Sunday's final qualifier in Lithuania.

Southgate is also likely to experiment with his tactics as he looks to develop a system capable of aiding England's chances in Russian Federation.

Global friendlies are hardly a typical source of excitement, but noncompetitive matches have produced the most intriguing moments of Southgate's leadership so far.

England have already played Germany this year, going down 1-0 in a March friendly in Dortmund to a Lucas Podolski strike in his last worldwide. They're still learning and qualification is a hard thing and not all teams do it. This points the way for England to play over the next nine months.

Hart has been England's go-to goalkeeper in recent years, making 74 appearances for the Three Lions. Needs game time at club level or he will be a passenger in Moscow.

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.

"If the gaffer wants me to play, I'll be there definitely, hopefully trying to score a few more goals".

"It was imperative: they have to go to a World Cup".

In response, Southgate urged for the public's patience with a young side.

His club team-mate Harry Kane, who scored the late victor against Slovenia on Thursday, is keen to play even with games against Real Madrid and Liverpool coming up after the worldwide break.
