What Merson Has Said About Kane's World Cup Performance Is Baffling

"But we created numerous chances against Tunisia".

England snatched a last minute victor when Harry Kane headed home from a corner.

While Kane took the plaudits, England manager Gareth Southgate was more interested in England's cool heads under pressure as his players refused to deviate from their measured possession game he has tried to hone. "We have not done well in recent years, so there is not much else that could go wrong". I am absolutely buzzing, everyone on the staff is. We have got a job to do.

England midfielder Dele Alli will undergo a scan on Tuesday on the thigh injury he sustained against Tunisia. Lukaku and Kane will be in contention for the award with performances like they had in the first game.

"But I think that's as expected".

I'm guessing that 7pm on a weekday night must be pretty good timing to show them but still, incredible to see. I tried to run at a few corners and couldn't move.


I was coming off the back of a season during which I had scored 31 Premier League goals, so I was 100% targeting the Golden Boot, and Harry will be too.

'If you don't get the win, even though you've done so many things right, that can breed a little bit of doubt.

For those of a certain age when there were only two TV channels (BBC 2 didn't count), huge TV audiences were guaranteed for numerous most popular programmes. Yet with Kane increasingly shouldering the goal scoring burden, Southgate will know that others have to start weighing in with their share if the team are to go far. Ashley Young delivered the set piece for John Stones to rise highest and meet with a powerful header.

"You're on the back foot (if you don't win first)", Neville, who played in three World Cups, said on ITV.

Hassen, who had injured his left shoulder making an earlier save, could not continue and left the field in tears as he was replaced in goal by Farouk Ben Mustapha.

However, the fact VAR can only overturn a decision which is deemed a "clear and obvious error" means all of those penalties were given and Zuber's goal was allowed to stand, because although the decisions were debatable, they were not clear mistakes.
