England have qualified for World Cup Russia 2018 despite another disappointing performance in a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday night.
Fans were saved from the depths of despair by a late Harry Kane goal that, at least, ensured the side would be travelling to the competition next summer.
Relive the action with this big selection of the best tweets and jokes from England 1-0 Slovenia by a continually disheartened nation:

There's nothing better than tucking into a pile of ironing while watching England on a Thursday night.

The usual England game routine tonight:
– Vow not to watch game
– Watch game
– Moan about game
– Vow never to watch any game again.

Is #ENGSLO a hashtag or a summary of the first half?

Hard to believe that Gareth Southgate – a man whose nickname is Gareth – has been unable to motivate these England players.

Who'd have thought appointing a man with a dreadful managerial CV would have taken England backwards?

Think England need another bulky plodding central midfielder. Only when they have three, four or even five will I feel truly safe.

#engslo 50 people have tried to climb over the wall at Wembley. The police stopped them & forced them back inside to watch the "game".

This is the most depressing & desperate match involving a Slovenian since Melania married Donald Trump. #ENGSLO

Great thing about Sky+ is you can fast forward through the #England match to get to the adverts

That bloke that ran across the pitch showed more energy and passion than all the England players put together

Your mum didn't carry you for 9 months and go through hours of labour for you to say Jordan Henderson is better than Jack Wilshere
— Khaleesi. ✨ (@reesannjennifer) October 5, 2017
Jordan Henderson is that person you tell people not to laugh at because you think there’s something wrong with him but aren’t sure what.

Dyche for England. Hard Brexit football. Keane zinging 50 yarders to Carroll to knock down. Footballs coming home.

Even ISIS won't claim responsibility for England's performance tonight. #ENGSLO

England will terrify world football with that finale. Not to mention a quite stunning clean sheet. Russia 2018 can't come soon enough.

England are 25/1 to win next year's World Cup.
For those who don't understand betting, that means if you put £10 on, you will lose £10.

Unless England get a World Cup group of San Marino , the Canary Islands , shepshed dynamo and Doncaster belles thay are fucked #ENGSLO
