Southgate also confirmed captain Harry Kane - who scored a hat-trick in the Bulgaria win - would not be one of those to drop out of the team.

England suffered an early setback in their European Championship qualifier against rank outsiders Kosovo, but the Three Lions bounced back in style to make it 5-1 at half-time.

There are now no Newcastle players in the England squad, despite the club having a strong core of English talent amongst their ranks.

But it is not the goals-for column that Southgate will be dwelling on, as he tries to make sure England are prepared for next summer's finals, which they are already all-but guaranteed to qualify for.

A frightful Michael Keane giveaway gifted Kosovo their opener inside of a minute as Fidan Aliti set up Valon Berisha, who fired past Jordan Pickford in a shocking start for the hosts.

England overcame the worst possible start to defeat Kosovo in an eight-goal thriller on Wednesday night.

Seven minutes later Muriqi added a third Kosovo goal from the penalty spot, after England's Harry Maguire had left out a leg for the forward to trip over in the penalty area.

"Numerous his improvement at United was as a 'wide raider" and I believe he isn't as sturdy as Harry together with his again to goal and holding play up, so if he performs as a 9, he'll play it otherwise to Harry, however a number of his finest work is in that inside-left channel coming in off the road. I think he can threaten teams in behind more.

For all the class and potency of England's attack, their current defensive condition suggests they will need to rack up at least three goals against those teams mentioned previously to stand a chance of victory because there is no way they will not concede goals. "I really have to keep encouraging our players to use the strengths they have".

Sterling ended a barren 27-game sequence stretching back three years when he scored twice in England's 3-2 win in Spain nearly a year ago - now he is irreplaceable, a talent reaching full maturity.

Former Premier League winners Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton have both tipped Tottenham striker Harry Kane to break the England goalscoring record.

Kosovo are the 50th Uefa nation to play England in a soccer match.
