Tunisia were the challenge that lay ahead of England as they got their World Cup campaign underway on Monday night.
Expectations were at a new low going into the tournament, but a favourable group draw still ensured supporters demanded qualification to the knockout stages.
Aside from the talent-stacked side of Belgium, 'only' Panama and Tunisia could prevent England from improving upon their finish at the 2014 World Cup.
And it all started so well.
Harry Kane broke the deadlock for the Three Lions from a corner, after Jesse Lingard and Raheem Sterling came close in the early exchanges.
England 2-1 Tunisia
However, it didn't last long with Tunisia levelling before the break from the penalty spot.
Kyle Walker conceded the spot kick after a tussle in the penalty and while there was some protestations, the general feeling was that the referee got it exactly right.
That was until Tunisia seemed to replicate exactly what Walker did to concede a penalty.
Tunisia wrestling Harry Kane
On numerous occasions throughout the match, Tunisia defenders were seen manhandling Kane in the area and with no repercussions.
It sparked anger on Twitter and Ian Wright put it better than most, even if he did require a few asterisks.
Check out his tweet below:
And when you consider some of the defending was reminiscent of wrestling, you can't help but wonder why England weren't awarded a penalty with the help of VAR or not.
However, England got the last laugh anyway when Kane scored from a corner once again to secure a dramatic 2-1 victory.
It seemed that even when Tunisia did their best UnderTaker impression, they just couldn't stop England's star striker from finding the net in the end.
Attention now turns to Panama and then Belgium after making the perfect start.
It's coming home, right? Right?
