Share

Buoyed by their impressive performance and last minute victor against Tunisia on Monday the Three Lions produced a breathtaking first half display that saw John Stones score two headers, Harry Kane blast home a brace of penalties, and Jesse Lingard sore a stunning goal from outside of the area.

Kane's hat-trick was completed in freakish fashion in the 62nd minute after a Ruben Loftus-Cheek deflected off the English captain's heel into the net.

Hat-trick hero Harry Kane is the best striker at the World Cup in coach Gareth Southgate's eyes. There's still a long way to go but the most important thing is to win matches.

"It could have been a tough game but we started well".

Jamie Vardy replaced Kane after 63 minutes while the likes of Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck looked on from the substitutes' bench, and Southgate said the players with less game time under their belts in Russian Federation were in his thoughts. "We tried to keep the ball more in the second half and play in a more orderly fashion".

England face Belgium in Kaliningrad on Thursday where victory would see them top Group G, but though finishing second could provide a more favourable route through the knockout stage, Neville urged Southgate's players to dismiss talk of the permutations and retain their focus.

"We're not getting too ahead of ourselves", Kane said after the match.

"There's a lot of good players behind me, hopefully I can take it into Thursday's game".

"It's odd because I enjoyed the win against Tunisia more - because of the tension and the fact you get over the line", said Southgate.

For England fans, the pain of being knocked out in the last 16 by Iceland in the 2016 European Championship and a first-round exit without a win at the 2014 World Cup, was finally slipping away. Panama paid the price for their petulant immaturity as the Three Lions ran riot and scored with what felt like every scoring opportunity they had before half-time - indeed, their first three shots on targets were all goals.
