Kane’s treble, plus Henderson’s goal and one from Harry Maguire all came before the break as shell-shocked Albania were blown away by England. Southgate's side still need a point to win the group and qualify for Qatar - but that should be a formality against San Marino on Monday.

On Kane, Southgate said, “I thought Harry’s centre-forward performance, his all-round performance was excellent. Not just the goals, his hold-up play, he bullied his centre-backs, he brought his teammates in very well, pressured the opponent well, so I thought it was a really pleasing performance from him.”

He added, “I think you could see how good he is as a player, over the years his goal record speaks for itself really. In training his finishing is outstanding, you give him half a chance, you know he's going to take it and that was the case today you know, he was clinical in front of goal and deserved his hat-trick.”
