Dream start for England’s new prince Harry

Russian Ultras are plotting attacks on England fans

England's World Cup opener against Tunisia in Volgograd was the biggest match the 25-year-old defender has ever played.

"If I'm being honest - and I'm one of his biggest fans - I thought he was poor", he told Sky Sports.

"I want to prove to myself that I can challenge Cristiano Ronaldo", he said.

"You can see England going through to the next stages and that's when the real pressure comes on, and we'll see how well the boys can do". Gareth Southgate will have learned a lot from the game, and so did we.

"Poch sent me a text message with lots of love hearts emojis and he wrote: 'Come on, England!'" Kane said after the match.

But I can not help but think this may have come a bit early. "I'm so proud of the lads", Kane said.

Southgate was correct in highlighting that the decision to award Tunisia a first half penalty wasn't a "clear and obvious error", but added, "if penalties are going to be given for that then it's going to be an interesting tournament".

MOSCOW, June 20 ― Marcus Rashford yesterday dismissed the idea that England are overly reliant on captain Harry Kane at the World Cup.

The striker, who confirmed he had opted against swapping his No 9 shirt with a Tunisian opponent post-match, is now focusing on the game against Panama on Sunday when England can potentially secure qualification for the knockout phase.

Kane kisses the badge after scoring for England.

"To be the best player in the world you have to aim high and you can't aim low".

"We are a team that are improving and developing, and therefore there will always be things that we can get better at".

Three officials from Federation Internationale de Football Association gave a presentation to the England players and staff last Wednesday, but there are clearly still issues that need clearing up.

"It was a good start to the tournament and it certainly gives us a platform to build on throughout the tournament", Rashford said. Without that, the picture would have looked very different and Gareth Southgate's men might have needed something from their final group game with Belgium.

Rashford's chances could be boosted by an injury to Alli, who will undergo a scan on Tuesday on the thigh injury he sustained in Volgograd.
