‘Kane hat-trick’ England beat Albania 5-0… in front of Qatar


‘Soccer closing price’ England is close to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The England national football team won the Qatar World Cup European Qualifier Group I Game 9 home match against Albania 5-0 at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

Albania was mesmerized by scoring five goals in the first half alone, including a hat-trick from main gun Harry Kane.

England maintained their group lead with 23 points from 7 wins, 2 draws and an unbeaten streak.

On the same day, they maintained a three-point gap with second-placed Poland, who won 4-1 with Robert Lewandowski in the away match against Andorra on the same day.

England will play their final match against San Marino on the 16th to secure their place in the World Cup finals on their own just by drawing a draw.

San Marino are at the bottom of the table with a total of nine defeats, so England has effectively booked a flight to Qatar.

Poland will face Hungary at home on the same day.

In the Qatar World Cup European Qualifier, the top 10 in 10 groups will go straight to the finals, and the 2nd in each group will go to the playoffs.

England took the lead over Albania when Harry Maguire headed in a free kick from Rhys James in the 9th minute of the game.

In the 18th minute of the first half, Kane headed a cross from Jordan Henderson from the right inside the penalty area and went one step further.

In the 28th minute of the first half, England scored an additional goal with Henderson’s left-footed shot following Kane’s pass, demoralizing the Albanian players.

Kane received a pass from Raheem Sterling in the 33rd minute of the first half and again shook the Albanian net with a left-footed shot from the left side of the goal area.

In extra time in the first half, Phil Foden completed a hat-trick with a picturesque right-footed volley from a right-footed corner kick in front of goal.

Kane, who scored three goals and one assist in the first half alone, was substituted in the 18th minute of the second half.

Italy and Switzerland, who are fiercely competing for the lead in Group C, were unable to decide the match 1-1 in Rome, Italy.

In the 11th minute of the first half, Noah Okapo’s pass was scored by Silvan Weidmer with a powerful right-footed shot from near the penalty spot, and Switzerland took the lead.

Italy counterattacked, and in the 36th minute, Lorenzo Insigne’s free kick was headered by Giovanni Di Lorenzo to turn the game around.

In the second half, Domenico Berardi was awarded a penalty for a foul by Switzerland’s Ulisses Garcia, giving Italy a chance to win from behind.

However, as Jorginho’s kick headed over the goal, he had to settle for a draw in the end.

With one match remaining, the two teams recorded 4 wins, 3 draws and 15 points side by side, with Italy leading the group in goal difference (Italy +11, Switzerland +9).

Group F’s Denmark, who have already secured their place in the finals, won their home game 3-1 against the Faroe Islands.

Denmark scored 30 goals in 9 matches and scored 30 goals, but in the 44th minute of the second half leading 2-0, Clamint Olsen made a makeover and scored their first goal in this qualifying round.
