Despite England claiming a spot in next summer's World Cup, thanks to a Harry Kane goal in extra time, the match against Slovenia was a bit lacklustre. However, there was one moment which captivated the thousands sitting in London's Wembley Stadium.

A paper aeroplane appeared from the heavens and slowly glided onto the pitch, with fans more fixated on that than the England players battling Slovenia. Moving ever so slowly, it came from the left-hand side, before scoring a 'goal' in the corner.

Fans went understandably wild for it.

The players on the field might have got a mild shock when the crowd burst into cheers, wondering what they must have done to garner that much support. Especially given that the incident felt broadly similar to when you used to watch the DVD idle screen, waiting ever so patiently for the logo to perfectly hit the corner.

Thousands of people have liked and retweeted the video on social media, with many agreeing that this was the most exciting part of the match.

One person said: "This is what has become of international football in England."

While another added: "Just shows how shit it is to watch England!"

It's reminiscent of one of the best football-related paper aeroplane moments in history, when a couple of LADs tossed a perfectly constructed aircraft from the top of a stadium during a match between England and Peru.

After a rocky start, it seems to glide more beautifully than a bird in a steady breeze. But it continued to surprise fans watching its journey because it kept going and going and going. While most people would be happy for a paper aeroplane to just reach the pitch, this one went a step further and miraculously managed to hit one of the Peruvian players.

A YouTuber commented on the video, saying: "This is one of the most hilarious things I have ever seen... Can you imagine the odds for that paper plane hitting a player?? Wonderful! You can hear supporters cheering as if a goal was scored."

Another user said: "This has got to be one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I've watched it about 20 times! Doesn't get boring."

But while some have suggested that paper aeroplanes are the most exciting part of an England football match these days, there's still hope that the team will be able to impress during next year's World Cup. The Three Lions are still at the top of Group F with 23 points, while Scotland are now in second with 17 points after beating Slovakia in Hampden Park.
