AP Global Soccer Writer

LONDON (AP) — Harry Kane scored a perfect hat trick as England beat Albania 5-0 to all but secure a place at the World Cup.

There was also a header from Harry Maguire and a first Wembley goal for Jordan Henderson. Poland is now set for the playoffs after a 4-1 victory over Andorra.
