The incredible reaction in Walkabout Sheffield after England's last-minute victor against Tunisia

GETTY    
   IN THE CROSSHAIRS There is no love lost between Russian and England fans

Yet as the stadium announcer in Volgograd played "Football's Coming Home", England's lament to their years of hurt at global level as they started their latest major tournament adventure on Monday night, a familiar story was set to unfold once again.

A huge peak audience of 18.3 million were watching BBC One as England scored a last minute goal to take the lead.

His late victor gave England their first win in an opening game at a World Cup since they saw off Paraguay in Germany in 2006.

That BBC video is very much a tongue-in-cheek dig at the English reaction every time the World Cup rolls around and the responses to the video on Twitter suggested fans did not approve of the hype machine kicking into gear after so many false dawns down the years.

But do you remember the names of the men that could be lifting the World Cup for England on 15 July?

The England captain popped up in the dying stages of the game to score, securing all three points against Tunisia.

"There were a lot of decisions against us and maybe there was a bit of justice at the end".

All in good spirits no doubt but there's nothing like the World Cup for fanning the flames even if we're not involved.

Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli were also below-par in Volgograd - Lingard missed three clear chances to add to his one goal in 13 appearances - but Sterling is the one whose performance level drops furthest when he changes his club shirt for an England jersey. "Go out there and play your own game, be free".

And it was a former Blade in Harry Maguire who headed the ball down to Kane from the corner to set up the iconic goal. Between them, they have played 78 games for England, but have delivered a combined total of just five goals.
