TIRANA, Albania: Gareth Southgate admits England still have room for improvement after Harry Kane ended a six-match goal drought in a 2-0 win over Albania.
Southgate -led England struggled to break through the hosts’ defense in the 2022 Group I World Cup qualifier until Kane found the target late in the first half.
It was the England captain’s first international goal since he scored against Kosovo in November 2019.
Kane returned to the starting line-up after being rested in last Thursday’s 5-0 win over San Marino, and he has now collected 33 goals in 52 appearances for England.
Kane was also involved in the second goal when he fed the ball for a Mason Mount goal in the second half.
“I didn’t like the way we handled the game in the last 15 minutes, attacking when it wasn’t necessary.
“I am happy with the win but there is still room for improvement.
“We have to keep working in this group. People are talking about our potential, but if we want to achieve it we have to reach a higher level.
“I think we can do better. They can enjoy this win but I think we can improve the performance,” Southgate said.
