What Merson Has Said About Kane's World Cup Performance Is Baffling

Gareth Southgate eager to make England proud but is well aware of what lies ahead in 2018 World Cup

"He's been a brilliant leader for us leading up to the tournament, as well as now that we have started the tournament", Rashford told reporters at England's Repino base.

The BBC's dominant record comes from screening the majority of England's group stage wins over the last 20 years.

In our big World Cup preview podcast, I tipped Lukaku to win the golden boot.

England's two goals, both scored by Harry Kane, came from corners as the prolific striker slipped his markers.

While some United States fans seemed happy with the idea of supporting England, others clearly weren't convinced by Corden's game plan.

Gareth Southgate's side were aggressive from the first whistle and took an early lead through Kane before Tunisia levelled the scoring from the penalty spot.

Kane pounced and duly put England up 1-0.




I'd stick Rashford up front with Kane and drop Sterling back into the midfield three, but that's the only change I'd make. "The power of football and the World Cup". It was the same when I got the job. Because if Eden Hazard drops deep and manages to get a run at Harry Maguire, then England have got a massive problem - he's not quick enough to handle the Belgian. "There are two group games left to play, two that we have to go out and win".

England football captain Harry Kane has said scoring the victor at such a high level was a dream come true, according to an interview shared by the English Football Association on Wednesday. "As with everything it needs improving and I think it will improve in time".

Panama will be a chance for further goals Watch the reaction of England fans to Harry Kane's last-gasp victor against Tunisia.

Everything about Harry's performance carried the hallmark of a top-class centre-forward.

"I'm going to keep challenging him on that, because I'm always a little uncertain as to what that title means and what you need to do to really gain it", Southgate said.

In England, the national side - who play again on Sunday at 1pm - are unsurprisingly the most searched team so far during the group stages - making up 23% of teams searched for.

"But after that it got worrying; it really fizzled out".
