(AP Photo/Matt Dunham) The Associated Press By ROB HARRIS, AP Global Soccer Writer LONDON (AP) — Harry Kane's goalless streak was only five minutes from extending to eight games when the captain finally found the net again for England. As Ben Chilwell floated a free kick into the penalty area, Kane slid in, stretched out his right foot and nudged the ball into the Croatia net. It came four months too late to secure a place for England in the World Cup final. But the World Cup Golden Boot winner ensured England

Mohamed Salah is “getting back to his best”, says Liverpool legend Jan Molby, with his stats for 2018-19 not indicative of how important he remains to the Reds cause. More of the same was demanded this term, with Jurgen Klopp once again looking to his Golden Boot-winning forward for inspiration. Salah has been steady rather than sparkling thus far, but Molby believes a lot of his best work can go unnoticed as he is not always the man to provide a finishing touch.

Mauricio Pochettino shrugged off rumours he rejected Real Madrid, indicating he's solely focused on Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino admits he liked hearing the fans frustration when he substituted Lucas Moura, but says the win reinforces his decision. Matchday four of the Champions League featured plenty of late drama with Harry Kane the hero for Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino believes his "assassin" Harry Kane would be revered and face less criticism from native football supporters and media if he was an Italian player at an Italian club. Kane has faced questions about his form and fitness this season, amid suggestions he was looking jaded after the World Cup, but after winning the Golden Boot in Russia, he has scored 10 goals in 15 appearances for Spurs this term, and Pochettino believes the changeable perception and coverage of Kane is a cultural...

Atlanta was in the race for the Supporters' Shield up to the final day of the regular season, but fell short after losing 4-1 at Toronto. Still, slowing down Atlanta's scoring machine and the duo of Josef Martinez and Miguel Almiron will be a challenging prospect for NYCFC. Martinez won the Golden Boot with a league-record 31 goals, while Almiron had 14 assists and was just as important in making Atlanta's attack so dangerous. The winners of the Supporter' Shield will face the feel-good story of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Columbus secured its spot in the postseason on the final day of the regular season then ousted D.C. United on penalties in the knockout round thanks to another tremendous

Maurizio Sarri has given an insight into the painstaking levels of detail he goes into to prepare for matches, with the Chelsea boss claiming he ignores the outside world to immerse himself in tactics. Sarri has made a superb start to life at Chelsea since his prolonged exit from Napoli this summer, with the Blues level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City after eight games and only behind the champions by virtue of goal difference. Chelsea fans have already noticed the difference between Sarri's style of football compared to that of previous manager Antonio Conte, while star player Eden Hazard - leading the Golden Boot race with eight goals - has described 'Sarri-ball' as his favourite approach during his time playing at Stamford Bridge.

Comparison between Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Manchester City poacher Sergio Aguero is premature, according to Pep Guardiola who believes the Egypt forward would need to replicate his last season form in ‘eight or nine years'.

"He [Salah] is younger and it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the future," said Guardiola ahead of Sunday's fixture at Anfield.

The England ace has three goals to his credit and shook a monkey off his back by finally netting a Premier League goal in August, but has still come in for criticism, with his overall level having dipped from the high standards that he has set.
