England's World Cup win over Tunisia gets biggest TV audience of 2018

  • Kane gunning for Ronaldo hat-trick heroics in England opener

I want to be up there with the best in the world.

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.

"We are proud of each other", Kane said after the Three Lions started a major tournament with a win for the first time since 2006. What pleased me is that there has been a long period of work gone into (Monday's) result from all the players and all of the support team.

"I am confident the Russian police should look at what happened last night and approach the next game in the same way..." As for my shirt, I wanted to keep it, that's all: a first goal at a tournament, my first World Cup goals, the team's first win, my first World Cup.

However, one position in which nobody seemed to be concerned about was up front, as Tottenham star Harry Kane is a prolific scorer of goals and a true talisman for the team. "I think we competed well against Belgium, and I think when there were tackles, they got stuck in just as much as we did".

"He's probably the one player - him and (Jordan) Pickford - who haven't played in cup finals or on big-stage Champions League games in the past".

Trump defends separating families at USA border, ‘politically correct or not’
Republicans left the wide-ranging talk in the Capitol in good spirits but still unsure if they have the votes to pass a bill . That bill has not been finalized but leaders hope to vote on it later this week, along with another more conservative option.


I am pretty sure there were many fans waiting to berate the players at fulltime before Kane's late victor. They could not get behind their defence once it sat back. "I see him on the training field every day".

"There were a lot of decisions against us and maybe there was a bit of justice at the end".

"For me, Belgium are a more hard opponent than England", Rodriguez was quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph.

Completing the list of most popular tweets of the evening were England's official account announcing the starting line-up and Kane's victor - and these two funnies.

"We got told before that there was going to be quite a lot of flies and when we went out for the warm-up it was a lot more than we all kind of thought". Tunisia was a tough game for us but we proved to ourselves we can step up in the big moment.
