England flies: Kane reveals insect infestation after Tunisia victory

England flies: Kane reveals insect infestation after Tunisia victory

For the first time since 2006, England won their opening group stage fixture at the World Cup.

Kane's two goals in the Volgograd Arena took his overall England tally to 15 in 25 appearances, with 10 of those coming in eight games under Southgate.

After Belgium thrashed Panama 3-0 in the other Group G game on Monday, the pressure was on England to deliver only their second win in their last nine games at World Cups and first since 2010.

He is England's most in-form player and was handed the captaincy ahead of the World Cup because his place in the starting XI is without question, simply because he has a track record of producing the goods.

The Tottenham forward had not scored before at a major tournament after drawing a blank at Euro 2016, but Southgate - who joked about the striker's well-documented August struggles in front of goal - was full of praise for the Three Lions captain.

"He always leads by example and there's no better way to do it than by scoring goals, like he has been doing. She has arrived in Russian Federation to attend the games of the national team", an employee of the Japanese Embassy said.

Gareth Southgate tells England squad the starting line up to face Tunisia
What we were doing in training was completely different to how Iceland played in the game". "It was exciting, a great game". They're an in-form team. "I'm there for the spirit of the camp to get everyone going, to get them all happy".

"Poch texted me (before the game) and after as well - he sent a lot of love hearts and said "Come on England"," said Kane. "We have not done well in recent years, so there is not much else that could go wrong".

"If we are creating that many chances - and who is to say we won't do that again? - we want to be as clinical as possible".

And Kane confirmed England players had found it tough to cope with certain aspects of the atmosphere despite his own personal heroics.

His team mate Raheem Sterling looked particularly bothered by the tiny gnats circling his face before the start of the second half.

"I felt positive at 1-1, the pace did drop off a bit".

Southgate added: "We had to keep monitoring Dele".
