  • What England must get right on and off the pitch to beat Tunisia

Gareth Southgate's men nearly paid a heavy price for missing a slew of first half chances (Jesse Lingard being the worst offender) when Tunisia's Ferjani Sassi slotted home a softly-awarded penalty 20 minutes before the interval. "Obviously when you look at the penalty they got..."

Alan Shearer, BBC Sport: "The only disappointing thing was that we created so many chances [in the first half] but only took one of them". So maybe there was a bit of justice at the end to get one at the back post. That's football, that's the ref. "It showed good character".

I am so proud of the team, we fought until the end. I'm so proud of the lads.

"We were able to play head-to-head and a draw would have been an excellent result for us".

When asked what the feeling was like when he scored the victor, Kane replied: 'It is hard to explain, obviously you get such a good feeling any goal you score but to score a victor in the World Cup like that is just incredible. We felt that Raheem Sterling and Dele Alli had caused huge problems for the opposition, but it was a good moment to put on a different threat.

"You go until the last second", Kane said, "and I'm absolutely buzzing".

Gareth Southgate's charges recorded three points thanks to a brilliant brace from captain Harry Kane who bagged a stoppage time victor, sending the country into a state of euphoria.

"If he hadn't scored, I'd be answering questions about his ability to score in tournament football", said Southgate, nearly exhausted of people doubting Kane's ability.

Henry Winter, The Times: "Here was the adversity that Southgate had talked to his players about, and the need to stay calm, to concentrate and respond".

Speaking after the game 20-year-old Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford, who did well after coming on a second half sub, admitted that his team-mates were delighted to get their World Cup campaign off to a positive start.

But they were nearly made to pay for a succession of missed chances in the first half.

Trippier's crossing from set-plays had Tunisia's defence on the back foot throughout. "What pleased me was that we kept the control and composure", Southgate told reporters. "We just have to hope the officials get it right more often than not". We wore them down.
