It was an easy night out as England beat Albania 2-0 on Sunday in Tirana through  goals from Kane and Mount to seal the points and stay top of group I standings.
Kane opened the scoring in the 38th minute before Mount doubled the lead in 63rd minute to seal the points for them and make it 2 wins out of 2 matches.

ImageThe Three lions had to wait until the 38th minute to break the deadlock through a Harry Kane header from a lovely cross by Luke Shaw to make it 1-0.
Harry Kane nearly made it 2-0 in the 41st minute but struck the ball against the crossbar and squandered the opportunity.
Berisha was called into action to deny Foden from getting his name onto the scoresheet by tipping a low effort onto the post.
ImageAlbania’s problems compounded further when Mason Mount made it 2-0 in the 63rd minute with a clinical dink finish past Berisha with Kane providing the assist.
The visitors were in total control once Mount scored the 2nd goal of the night with Pope having very little to do in the entire match.
He saw one shot early in the first half blazed over the bar by Uzuni and apart from that had an almost rest day between the sticks with no pressure from the hosts.
After securing this win, England top their group and play Poland at Wembley in their next match on Wednesday while Albania has a trip to San Marino on the same day.
