Ladies and gentlemen, England have qualified for the 2018 World Cup after an electric performance saw Gareth Southgate's side storm to victory over Slovenia in front of an enthralled Wembley crowd.

The result was never in doubt with Harry Kane leading the line and the Tottenham forward added the cherry on top of a memorable cake after guiding a Kyle Walker cross passed Jan Oblak into the net.

Kane's finish drew an ear-splitting roar from a Wembley crowd that easily filled at least 40% of the iconic national stadium.

Naturally, it was a great moment for the nation, one that will undoubtedly go down in the pages of history alongside names like Lord Nelson and Boris Johnson. The country was overjoyed and it was hard to see how it could get any better.

Cue Glenn Hoddle. The former England boss was on commentary duty with ITV when Kane poked home to send England to Russia and his reaction was a thing of beauty. Good ol' Glenn proved himself to be a true wordsmith in a remarkable moment.

Twitter, always a place for kind words, was quick to respond to Hoddle's scintillating form in the commentary box as "small toe boot" quickly began trending.

Hoddle's revolutionary use of the Queen's English went down an absolute treat on social media as you can see in the following posts.

Hear ye now footballing world, Glenn Hoddle and Harry Kane are on their way to conquer you in the mighty name of England.
