Joe Hart was the star as England drew 0-0 with Slovenia in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

The England goalkeeper produced several top-notch saves on a night his side were second best in Ljubljana.

Hart twice came off his line after Slovenia players were played through and came up with a stunning save against Jasmin Kurtic, who earlier had hit the post.

The draw keeps England top of Group F on seven points, two clear of Lithuania and Slovenia.

"It is my best game for a while, it was hard to say," Hart said on ITV1.

"I was asked to do quite a bit, but it was down to a few errors from us.

"But we can all improve, we are a young team and have dug in, in an intense atmosphere and taken a point."
