England's football team banished the ghost of past national failures with a record 6-1 thrashing of Panama at the FIFA World Cup that included a hat-trick by Harry Kane and eased them into the last 16.

Buoyed by their impressive performance and last minute victor against Tunisia on Monday the Three Lions produced a breathtaking first half display that saw John Stones score two headers, Harry Kane blast home a brace of penalties, and Jesse Lingard sore a stunning goal from outside of the area.

Ahead of their meeting next Thursday to decide who tops Group G, England and Belgium are level on points, goal difference and goals scored.

Harry Kane topped the goalscoring charts, overtaking the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo and one England fan went viral because he somehow managed to hold two pints in one hand and a flag in the other.

Legend Geoff Hurst was the hero on that occasion, scoring a hat-trick in England's most famous triumph. We can go into the Belgium game with confidence.

Manager Gareth Southgate has said England will not play for second place in Group G, even though it would nearly certainly put them in the easier half of the draw.

"This is a top player, a world-class player - and we don't have many".

The duo made no attempt to hide from the paparazzi as they were snapped while entering and exiting a restaurant on Friday night. The Closer singer posted a attractive video featuring Chopra in his Instagram story with a lovely caption "Her".

Kane said: "I'm very proud. There are a lot of incredible players and I'll try to be the top scorer, of course", concluded the Tottenham man.

England's final group game comes on Thursday evening when they take on Belgium in Kaliningrad. "We keep going. #WorldCup #ThreeLions" he tweeted.

For England fans, the pain of losing to Iceland in the 2016 European Championships and a first-round exit without a win at the 2014 World Cup, was finally slipping away.

"We're a team who want to play and you see that on the pitch from the back to the front".

"A different type of challenge and I know how many people have been watching at home on a Sunday afternoon, so it was lovely that we could give them goals to celebrate".

"I was pleased the captain got his hat-trick because it meant he had the hump less when I brought him off!" quipped Southgate.
