Tunisia v England, 18 June 2018

  • Jesse Lingard is set to start for England against Tunisia

The fervour, the hope, the expectation, the captain opening the scoring early on, the half-an-hour of playing like potential World Cup winners; it was nearly all undone when Tunisia levelled with a first-half penalty and the game was dismally drifting toward a draw.

Southgate said: "He was feeling a little bit of an issue just before half-time, but he felt he could carry on and I thought the runs that he was making and the way he was pressing the ball was still causing a problem".

England's hot start paid off after a few misses though as Kane put the ball away just 11 minutes in for the 1-0 lead.

"I definitely didn't expect the manager to drop him against Slovenia and as soon as we all saw that we knew that that gaffer was not somebody to be messed around with", said Rose. "We made so many clear-cut chances in the first half and were strong on set-plays in the second".

South Africa 2010 started badly and never really got going for Fabio Capello's team before they were blown away by Germany in the round of 16, while Brazil 2014 was a disaster of two defeats and a draw against Costa Rica before finishing rock bottom of the group.

The North Africans were level in the 34th minute when Kyle Walker caught Ben Youssef with his arm on a cross and the referee pointed to the penalty spot. But there can be no denying the value of the feel-good factor that will now infuse England ahead of Sunday's Group G encounter with Panama in Nizhny Novgorod.

After arriving late, the president was expected to leave early to fly to his meeting with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader. Trudeau told Trump that it was "unacceptable" to cite national security when targeting a military ally like Canada.

The knock did not stop the Tunisia keeper producing heroics to keep out John Stones' header, but he could do nothing about the follow-up as Kane confidently tucked home.

"Harry is a top, top striker", said Southgate. "I'm delighted for him because if he doesn't score tonight it'd be questions about him not scoring in tournaments". I think England rolls to an easy tournament opening win on Monday, so I'll back the Three Lions with a -1.5 handicap. "It shows good character to get the job done". When you have very tall players it is very hard to counter them.

A brace from Harry Kane, including a very late victor, carried England to a dramatic victory over Tunisia tonight.

England usually enters the FIFA World Cup as a favorite to make a deep run in the tournament, but that's not the case in 2018 in Russian Federation.

Harry Maguire is a serious danger as an attacking threat but can be slack in possession.

"We created so many clear cut chances, especially in the first half, and were in total control in the second half".
