Harry Kane inspires England to win over Tunisia

Adjust Comment Print

Harry Kane argued justice had been done after the England captain nodded his side's stoppage-time victor having seen two vociferous penalty appeals for fouls by Yassine Meriah waved away by the Colombian referee, Wilmar Roldan.

The stage was set.

This is England's first opening match win in over ten years!

Harry Kane felt that he should have been awarded two penalties against Tunisia.

On this occasion, Tunisia were mere minutes away from a famous draw, but it ended with captain Kane producing the goods when it mattered.

England dominated the game and got off to a quick start in Volgograd as the striker opened his account after just 11 minutes.

According to Rumsby's report, referees were consulted on certain zero-tolerance issues-including grappling-before the World Cup. It didn't take him long.

The second bold decision was to opt to sacrifice one defensive midfielder and two of the team's most recognised midfield trio.

A dream start for Harry, the prince who wants to become king. A rampant first half, minus the lacklustre finishing was a joy to watch. But Kane had other plans. England regularly complained to referee Wilmar Roldan that Kane and his team-mates were being held at attacking set-pieces. He's able to do what Martin's just showed us in terms of sitting back.

England promised to launch their campaign with attacking football and they tore into Tunisia before and after Kane's opener, creating a string of chances only to be let down by a lack of composure in front of goal.

"The crucial thing is taking the chances in this tournament".

Rashford came on a second-half substitute at the Volgograd Arena.

They found one in the form of a header from Harry Kane, whose uncanny ability to find himself in the right place at the right time once again pushed his team beyond the brink.

"I was maybe a bit disappointed by that", Kane said. We've got a great bond off the pitch so it's great to see it on the pitch.

Gary Lineker: "Softest penalty ever". Kane delivered. He is the story.

Walker said: "We've had a briefing, but what's correct and what's not?"

"It's massive to get the win". You never know how it will go. "We made the fans here in the stadium happy and back home as well". "England need more chances to fall for him given those two chances were his only real sights of goal, but they can trust in their skipper". He's also scored eight goals in the six games in which he has worn the armband for England.

Some thought the responsibility of being captain would be too heavy for him to carry.
