Harry Kane strikes late to take England through to Nations League finals

• England 2-1 Croatia• Lingard 78, Kane 85 | Kramaric 57In the end, it became another test of character. An examination of a young side’s ability to rouse themselves just as the occasion was veering cruelly off script, with all that giddy pre-match expectation threatening to give way to familiar, asphyxiating anticlimax. Previous England teams might have cramped up, accepting the worst. Plenty of these players had been left drained and dispirited back at the Luzhniki Stadium in July once Croatia, such familiar opponents, had seized the momentum.

They appear to be a better team now than they were in the summer, and certainly a squad with more options to explore, so, once behind and chasing, their late rally was almost to be expected. Gareth Southgate’s team were five minutes away from being relegated to Division B of Uefa’s new competition.

Danny Willett ends long wait with DP World Tour Championship victory

• Willett stays dry for first win since 2016 Masters• Francesco Molinari calls Race to Dubai success ‘incredible’If victory at the 2016 Masters will always be the biggest of Danny Willett’s career, his triumph in Dubai on Sunday may yet rank as the most significant.Typically, success for Willett at the DP World Tour Championship did not arrive without an element of drama.
