Slovakia 0 - 1 England: Adam Lallana Saves England

The 2018 world Cup Qualifier match between Slovakia and England today ended in favour of the English with Adam Lallana the hero of the game, scoring just before the close of the game.
The English side had their arrangement shuffled this time as Wayne Rooney anchored the midfield causing some reactions, due few less accurate passing, slowing down pace with the ball and a lot of Miscalculations. Though his inclusion in the line up makes him the most capped outfield player ahead of David Beckham and Steven Gerald.

The early minutes of the game,  England enjoyed possession of the game, and the Slovakian side did well to ensure they were not trailing, even the English did well at the defence it seemed the defence was the major area both Teams concentrated on.

The Slovakian side had to play with ten men from the 57th minute as Martin Škrtel who had his hobby of the night to be Harry Kane was finally sent off due to a light step on the toes of the English Forward leaving them with 10 men.

The Game remained draw till 90 minutes were over England could not over power the Slovakian side. Five more extra minutes were added and still both sides couldn't get a clean finish, both keepers having the time of their lives till the fifth minute of the extra time.

Adam Lallana scored at the 5th minute of the extra time finishing of a deflection from Pekar in, sending it through the near post, giving same his win and England their three points
