The Three Lions crushed Albania in a World Cup qualifying game.

England defeated Albania with a 5-0 result in their World Cup qualifier on Friday.

The Three Lions

put themselves on the verge of securing the qualification by scoring five goals in the first half.

Harry Kane, who scored a hat-trick last night, praised his side's performance in a post-match interview.

"[It was a] great night for the team first and foremost. An important result for us and just the way we went about it,"

Kane told

Radio Five Live.

"To go 5-0 up at half-time shows the character of the squad. We had a bit of a disappointing performance last time we were here at Wembley and we wanted to put that right, and we did that. A great night all round and we can look forward to Monday.

"We were looking to be ruthless all around the pitch, not just in the box or the finishing, we wanted to make it a tough night for them to show the country and the world what we are capable of and I think we did that.

"We will keep doing what we are doing, keep working hard as a team and a squad and hopefully keep improving. Still to get the job done on Monday."

Increasing his England goal tally to 44, Kane went level with Jimmy Greaves in England's all-time top-scorers list.

He added: "Whenever I score I seem to be sharp, whenever I don't, I'm not sharp anymore. That is part and parcel of being a striker. The most important thing is we are moving forward as a team."

The Three Lions are now only one point away from qualifying to the next year's World Cup. Gareth Southgate's side will meet San Marino in their last World Cup qualifying match on Monday.
