  • Captain Kane gives England 2-1 win over Tunisia

Rashford played as a second half substitute, replacing Raheem Sterling in the win, but Kane was the hero of the night with the two goals to give his side a morale boosting win in their opening match of World Cup Group G in Russian Federation, reported Xinhua news agency.

That's some turnaround, especially as Maguire only made his global debut last October and plays for a team that hovered in the middle of the Premier League for most of last season.

His two goals against Tunisia were his first at a major tournament after a goalless Euro 2016, but Kane's statistics for Tottenham (108 goals in 153 Premier League appearances) suggested that it wasn't going to be too long before breaking his duck on the biggest stage.

Until we won a match at these finals, then mention of the Iceland game was never going to be far away.

"You can say that but, like I said before, we already know that within ourselves", Rashford said. I said before I was so excited to be at a World Cup and it is about proving a point.

"If Harry doesn't score we've got players who can", said Tripper. "Ronaldo is the best player in the world with Messi".

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

Panama will be a chance for further goals Watch the reaction of England fans to Harry Kane's last-gasp victor against Tunisia. "So I'm delighted he scored two goals and hopefully there's many more for him to come in this tournament".

Rashford's chances could be boosted by an injury to Alli, who will undergo a scan on Tuesday on the thigh injury he sustained in Volgograd.
