England fans believe the World Cup will be theirs

  • Mosquitoes are swarming around the England team's hotel in Volgograd

He is now on the path to joining the company of England World Cup legends.

Tunisia dug in during the second half as they attempted to hold on for a point, only for Kane to pop up at the back post to score England's victor in stoppage time.

Video footage showed him getting to his feet and rejoining the crowd of jubilant fans.

You won't hear too many Portuguese fans complaining about Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat trick to earn the European champions a 3-3 draw against Spain in Sochi last Friday, so if Kane is to fill the Ronaldo role for England, then they should count themselves lucky to possess a player capable of delivering when it matters most.

England fans have been celebrating uninterruptedly since the team's first 2-1 victory against Tunisia on June 18 at their World Cup 2018 debut. Instead, they were rescued at the death by Harry Kane.

The Tottenham hitman got his World Cup campaign off to a magnificent start, with two goals on Monday night, but it was the importance and timing of his second strike that really highlighted his class.

The Tottenham striker now has eight goals from six games as captain of the national side and 10 in eight under Gareth Southgate's stewardship.

The child, from Castlederg, started treatment in 2016 in the USA , where medical marijuana is legal. In a statement, Billy's family said he is now too ill to travel back to Canada for treatment.


Russian media said authorities used planes in the months before the game to spray the area around the stadium, which is next to the massive Volga river, with a special substance created to kill off the bugs.

"I had to prove people wrong throughout my career and I love proving to myself I can do it", said Kane.

"I think you need goals from all over the pitch and I think that's what we'll be looking to do", Young added. And that is an issue which is beginning to rear its head for Southgate ahead of Sunday's clash with Panama in Nizhny-Novgorod. "Ronaldo is the best player in the world with Messi".

Law 8 in Fifa's Laws of the Game document looks at kick-offs, defining them as both a way of starting and restarting play.

Jesse Lingard, Raheem Sterling and Dele Alli all have superior records at club level and have been backed to provide goals after a handful of chance went begging in Volgograd.

In fact, qualification could be assured in the team's next game against Panama, leaving the clash with Belgium as a potential decider for the top spot in the group.
