Harry Kane goal: WATCH Kane put England ahead against Tunisia

Staking a
claim
Loftus-Cheek

Building up to the World Cup, the Three Lions played two warm-up games, beating Nigeria 2-1 at Wembley and then Costa Rica 2-0 at Elland Road.

After a scoreless run at the 2016 European Championship, Kane is finally showing the predatory instinct in front of goal that has served Tottenham so well.

"I was really impressed by Loftus-Cheek when he came on", Barton said. It didn't take him long. A poacher's goal in his first World Cup match.

It was a similar story for Wahbi Khazri, chasing shadows for 85 minutes before being replaced, although Fakhreddine Ben Youssef did justify his inclusion with a trojan-like display as he hustled and harried relentlessly.

Double goalscorer Kane said credit was due to the England players for not giving in. On every set piece, he was rugby-tackled by Tunisia defenders but Wilmar Roldan, the Colombian referee, never said anything.

Didn't do much except for picking the ball out of the net after Tunisia scored a penalty in the first half.

"I've seen a couple of them and they make me look a bit chubby if I'm totally honest with you".

After an early goal from captain Harry Kane, England missed a number of opportunities for a second.

"We got told there would be a lot of flies and when we went out for the match it was a lot more than we thought".

Kane was repeatedly wrestled to the ground in the penalty box during England set pieces.

Rashford added second-half impetus to the Three Lions attack as a second-half replacement for Raheem Sterling but was left to marvel at the man of the hour. Yet on that corner in injury time, he found space at the far post to place a ideal header between Farouk Ben Mustapha (who replaced an injured Hassen in goal in the first half) and his post.

Too often are World Cup minnows underestimated, with the belief that they're just enjoying the ride of a rare or first-ever foray on the world stage, but the Icelands and Mexicos and Irans have certainly had their say so far this tournament. We've got a great bond off the pitch so it's great to see it on the pitch.

Gary Lineker: "Softest penalty ever". It was after this moment that England started to look sloppy at the back with Tunisia creating a few more chances after this. Kane delivered. He is the story.

"We are proud of each other", Kane said. "Winning the first game is always massive". You never know how it will go. We got what we deserve in the end. "We made the fans here in the stadium happy and back home as well".

After Brazil and Argentina stumbled to a draw, Spain and Portugal shared an entertaining point, and reigning world champions Germany lost, the main thing should be taken from this England performance is the fact that three points have been put on the board.
