England break record as Harry Kane joins elite group of legends

Gareth Southgate

The Tottenham Hotspur striker said England fans were justified in dreaming of winning the World Cup for the first time since 1966.

England had never scored five goals in a World Cup game prior to Sunday afternoon.

Harry Kane played a captain's role once more with a hat-trick to become the tournament's leading scorer.

Kane and Fontaine are two of just three players to have achieved this feat - Hungary's Sandor Kocsis scored seven goals in the first two matches for his team at the 1954 World Cup.

Even locals were supporting the team in Nizhny Novgorod, despite the bitter diplomatic relations between Russian Federation and Britain. "What we did was to try to avoid a bigger catastrophe in the second half". The joy and togetherness in the squad - the second-youngest in Russian Federation - becomes clear in the goal celebrations. It wasn't Kane on the end this time but Stones, who was left unmarked to score his first worldwide goal.

Brazil win but old questions of mental focus persist
The player constantly pleaded for sympathy while the official routinely told the PSG star to get on with it. The dream - no, the OBJECTIVE - is still alive. "Congratulations for the performance, guys".

Lingard did get on the scoresheet in the 36th with the pick of the goals.

The former Manchester United defender also reserved special praise for Kieran Trippier, whose first-half exertions down the right created numerous opportunities.

The fourth goal was the culmination of a well-worked free kick with Sterling's close-range header parried by goalkeeper Jaime Penedo.

Playing from the off with an ease and trickery that contrasted with the stressed-looking England flops of recent worldwide tournaments, Gareth Southgate's team romped into a remarkable 5-0 lead at halftime.

Up stepped the Spurs striker and his penalty was just ridiculous. This Panama team wouldn't sit well in our non-league in England, they're that bad, ' he said.
