England Avoids Pulling An England Thanks To Late Harry Kane Goal

Kane headed a 91st-minute victor to follow his opening goal as Gareth Southgate's side edged to a 2-1 Group G success in Volgograd.

There were scenes of unrivalled joy across the country as Harry Kane popped up with an injury-time victor against Tunisia last night.

The co-presenter of ITV's Good Morning Britain then took aim at Lineker over his opinions on politics, suggesting double standards were at play.

"It's hard to tell how many people were there but it was packed, you couldn't move".

"To be the best player in the world, you have to aim that high".

"Hopefully I am OK", Alli said after the game.


One win inspires most Englishmen to conclude that an opening win in Group G means the rest of the world will be quaking in their boots at the prospect of taking on Harry Maguire, Jesse Lingard and the rest of Southgate's "dream team".

"I did not feel the midges because I was so focused on the team, on the game", Tunisia's Nabil Maaloul said.

The debate got a mixed reaction on Twitter, with England's performance polarising opinion. "Winning the first game is always massive". You have five minutes. And you support 2 big teams.

Apart from one player; Kieran Trippier. Last night's game was lacking intelligence in the middle of the park.

Another user added: "We totally dominated the second half and the pressure eventually paid off". Gareth Southgate will have learned a lot from the game, and so did we.

Soon it will be time to look for dates for potential open top bus parades through London, not to mention the Knighthoods and bronze to commemorate the England heroes of 2018, with this BBC video poking fun at the English obsession with believing in the impossible.
