The team's refusal to be dispirited as the game crept into stoppage time at the end level despite England's dominance earned praise from Gareth Southgate.

Mindful of Ronaldo's hat-trick for Portugal against Spain on Friday and doubles for Spaniard Diego Costa, also in that match, and Belgium's Romelu Lukaku, Kane is the first England player to score twice in a World Cup game since Gary Lineker in 1990. "But even at 1-1, I was really proud of our performance".

It's only too fitting that Kane was the example to follow then.

Shearer: "There is no difference whatsoever between the penalty Tunisia got and the ones England didn't".

Tunisia mounted a bit of a comeback after that and were awarded a penalty in the 33 minute when Kyle Walker brought Fakhreddine Ben Youssef down inside the box. When you look at the replays, the defender has hold of Kane and dragged him down. Nobody expected it to be by rugby tackle.

With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets. "We all had bug spray on and it was important as some of them went in your eyes, some in your mouth, but it is about dealing with what comes your way".

With Marcus Rashford and Ruben Loftus-Cheek coming on, Trippier used his passing and pace to combine with the pair to get down the right but, as has been the case with England for a while, the final ball into the box and finishing was the problem. Eric Dier and coach Gareth Southgate.

England and Southgate know they were three minutes away from very different emotions - and perhaps a very different inquisition - before Kane stepped in to make his decisive contribution. The Three Lions dominated possession in the first half of the game and continued to create chances.

Neville, who played at three World Cups with England, says the anxiety that would have creeped in has now been avoided with Kane's vital victor in the Group G clash. But while England passed the sterner test, Belgium had the most comfortable start in its 3-0 victory over Panama.
