England Gareth Southgate 2018 FIFA World Cup Tunisia

England Gareth Southgate 2018 FIFA World Cup Tunisia

He scored a brilliant goal in a friendly against Nigeria earlier this month and looked bright when coming off the bench against Tunisia.

England manager Gareth Southgate is determined to keep pushing Kane further and, though he had a wry smile as he said it, refused to be drawn on whether that performance confirmed his captain a world-class player. It is down to myself to put it right, and there is no better way to start with a win and a couple of goals.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has revealed that he aspires to reach the levels of Barcelona's Lionel Messi or Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, and is also looking to win the Golden Boot at the World Cup this summer. He has made one hell of a start.

However, the former England worldwide believes that Kane should not be labelled as a world class player just yet. Three out of the four Manchester United players who travelled to Russian Federation played, but how did they perform?

Kane rescued England with his late strike. "We kept going. We spoke a lot about togetherness and we've got a great bond together", he said.

England's dramatic victory in their first game of the World Cup catalysed a remarkable surge in activity on social media about the game - peaking at 52,000 tweets per minute after Harry Kane's late victor. It could be between him and Ronaldo to be named the World Cup's top scorer.

"Before the game I was really up and thought we had a chance", he said. Hopefully Monday's victory will put an end to people talking about what happened there. It did to me, because I loved the pressure and added responsibility of leading my country. He has justified Gareth's decision already, not that he had to as far as I am concerned.




Young, fresh from his first World Cup appearance at the age of 32, was singing from the same hymn sheet. I have been itching to get out there and showcase my talent.

Can you spot yourself among the fans cheering England on from Millennium Square?

"But you have to stay calm in them situations and I've had it before, so it wasn't sort of a shock to me, so I knew what I had to do to recover fast enough for the game".

"I think if we have that togetherness we can all drag each other through".

England play Panama on Sunday afternoon, followed by Belgium next Thursday.

After Panama held one of the tournament favourites scoreless in the first half, reality hit hard just after the break. "I had brilliant help from them, and I am just sorry that I managed to ruin their day off".
