Now, he's the first Leicester City player to represent the country at the World Cup since Gordon Banks, England's great goalkeeper during its one and only triumph in 1966.

Two chances and two goals for Kane, both predatory strikes from close range. It could be between him and Ronaldo to be named the World Cup's top scorer.

I know what it's like in the first game of a World Cup - there is a lot of anxiety, pressure and tension - and, for all the apparent calmness in the camp, England would have been feeling that before Monday's tournament opener against Tunisia.

Danny Welbeck has the best goal tally of any player in Southgate's squad, with 16 goals in 29 appearances, but the injury-jinxed Arsenal forward has only scored twice in five appearances under the current manager and his involvement in Russian Federation is likely to be as an impact substitute when, or if, England are chasing the game. But Harry Maguire won a header from a corner and Kane was on hand at the far post to nod in the victor before being mobbed by his ecstatic teammates.

"I might not be celebrating any goals as athletically in future!"

I'd like to see some rotation in order to give some World Cup experience to other players in this young squad.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was one of the first people to congratulate Harry Kane after his heroics in an England shirt.

Details of the OPPO Find X revealed
To mimic what Apple offers with the iPhone X , the Find X (apart from the name) also ditches the traditional fingerprint sensor. Frankly, we're not surprised, given that OPPO is no stranger to taking an unorthodox approach to smartphone camera systems.

"We have to prepare as perfectly for Panama to make sure we get the result in that game we need".

Kane kisses the badge after scoring for England.

England will hope to seal qualification to the knockout rounds when they face Panama at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Sunday. I worked hard to get where I am, I have a lot of determination and I enjoy being here and it is about stepping it up.

"They kept going, kept going to the last second". I have been itching to get out there and showcase my talent. Alli too hit the woodwork with a header and England went into half-time wondering how they had not sealed victory already.

The Manchester United forward replaced Raheem Sterling in the 68th minute of a match he may well have started had it not been for injury. "And he's got a really lovely calm temperament".

Marcus Rashford believes England captain Harry Kane will continue to go from strength to strength following his match-winning heroics against Tunisia.
