England's first World Cup game attracts record viewing figures

England's first World Cup game attracts record viewing figures

"That's why we work so hard to go to 90-plus minutes and thankfully we got one in the end".

The Liverpool skipper said: "We can be friends off the field but when you're on the field it's important that you're fighting for your mate next to you".

"I am confident the Russian police should look at what happened last night and approach the next game in the same way..."

Kane enjoys a brilliant working relationship with Pochettino, and the message he sent to him clearly underlines that sentiment.

The incident occurred in the 11th minute when Kane stroked the ball home after a stunning save from Tunisian keeper Mouez Hassen from a towering John Stones header to give England the lead.

Kane will have been keen to prove a point at Russian Federation 2018 after struggling at Euro 2016. The Euros were disappointing for me, for everyone, so it was a challenge to put that right.

With Harry Maguire the only left-footed player in the starting XI, they lack some balance. The challenge is there. "There's no rush. You'll need these players, Gareth has mentioned that". You can't aim low.

"You want a major goalscorer, a striker that's going to take chances, but we've got that in abundance around the team with Vards, Welbs (Danny Welbeck) and the kid Rashford".

Iceland's 340,000 strong population is the smallest ever to reach the big stage, beating Trinidad and Tobago who held the title in 2006 with 1.3 million.

Harry and Meghan's big day may have been crowned the event of the year, but it was England's victory against Tunisia in the World Cup at Russian Federation 2018 that broke United Kingdom television records. We had some of them in our eyes and some of them in our mouth.

"There've been so many first games where England have bottled it but finally to turn it around - brilliant".

"If (Raheem) Sterling can start firing on all cylinders then we're going to be on fire", he said.

"The key is always to believe".
