England's World Cup campaign got off to the best possible start.

After a dominant performance vs Tunisia, the Three Lions scored in injury-time courtesy of Harry Kane's well-directed header after excellent work from Harry Maguire.

It is the first time England have won their opening game of a World Cup since 2006 when a 1-0 win over Paraguay saw the 'Golden Generation' get off to a promising start.

The 2-1 win over Africa's highest ranked side puts England in a fantastic position to seal qualification to the knockout stages after just two games.

Panama are up next and after watching the Central American side vs Belgium, you'd be a fool not to have some optimism.

Kane's tournament has got off to the best possible start and against a sub-standard Panama defence, Tottenham's talisman could have a field day.

And after his two goals, Kane posted a lovely tweet to England fans across the world, typifying why he's the perfect captain for this young, exciting side.


He knows what it's like to be an England fan during World Cup year.

Both Kane and Jordan Henderson showed their true leadership qualities during a tough test, with the latter really proving to the world that he is capable at the highest level.

The balance of the team looked right and despite both Raheem Sterling and Dele Alli occasionally struggling to stamp their authority on the game, you feel Southgate will have little concern.


If Alli's injury is a little more serious than expected, though, Ruben Loftus-Cheek looks like he is more than ready to start vs Panama.
