Captain Kane comes good to heighten England's aura of optimism

19 June 2018

Harry Kane's 91st minute header gave the Three Lions their first win in their opening game of a major tournament since 2006.

The incident comes as England is set to play its first World Cup match in Russia, after serious violence broke out between Russian and England fans in the French city of Marseille during the Euro 2016 championship.

Gareth Southgate was proud of his players' spirit, togetherness and composure on a night when the England manager felt his side got a raw deal from the officials. He always leads by example and there is no better way than by scoring goals like he has been doing. Harry Maguire and John Stones can equal Harry Kane's aerial threat in the box for corners, while Jesse Lingard battled to get on the end of Trippier's deliveries. "The spaces that were created by Kane were very scary to us".

Rashford, who came on as a second-half substitute in place of Raheem Sterling in Volgograd, says the entire squad accept they can not feature in every match and understand the decisions manager Southgate has to make from game to game.

But after Kyle Walker softly conceded a penalty that Ferjani Sassi converted in the 35th, numerous fouls went against England. But England struggled to finish it off.

They conceded a penalty and in today's football - as ridiculous as it seems - yes, it was the right decision.

Dhawan ton puts India in control in Afghanistan’s test debut
Stanikzai said that they are not nervous but "well prepared" for the rigours of Test match cricket. Afghanistan will be even more determined as they are the most risky among the bunch.

It was relief for Kane and Gareth Southgate, who leapt into the air in delight as his World Cup debut as a coach got off to a winning start. "And then the pressure builds".

England have made friends and won admirers here, on and off the pitch.

The result means Belgium top Group G on goal difference after a 3-0 over World Cup debutants Panama earlier on Monday.

Gary Lineker scored 10 goals in two World Cups for England in 1986 and 1990 and his ability to change a game in an instant is why those teams enjoyed relatively successful tournaments, reaching the quarterfinals in Mexico and the semifinals in Italy four years later.

Hierro has faith in troubled Spain side
