Harry Kane goal: WATCH Kane put England ahead against Tunisia

Wilmar Roldan red card Ecuador v Peru

Tottenham ace Kane led from the front for the Three Lions with a pair of goals, including a stoppage time victor, giving England their first World Cup opening win since 2006.

"You go until the last second", Kane said, "and I'm absolutely buzzing".

After a blistering start that made it look as though England would win the game going away, Tunisia allowed just one goal before settling into a defensive front that refused to break.

Building up to the World Cup, the Three Lions played two warm-up games, beating Nigeria 2-1 at Wembley and then Costa Rica 2-0 at Elland Road.

Yes, there were some negatives in this win - Raheem Sterling's infuriating search for form on the global stage, Jesse Lingard's wayward finishing, the team's lack of imagination at times - but with Germany losing their opening game and heavyweights such as Brazil, Argentina and Spain all failing to win on their first outings in Russian Federation, it would be overly critical to focus on the downsides of England's performance.

"It's a massive boost, a massive bonus, we kept going". Those still bruised by the Iceland experience now have a positive one as their most recent point of reference at a major tournament.

On the first occasion, John Stones was possibly guilty of pushing his marker in the back, although there wasn't an obvious foul during the second altercation. Even if we'd drawn, we'd have been proud of the performance.

Rio Ferdinand singled out Harry Maguire for his assured performance at both ends of the pitch.

Manager Gareth Southgate labelled him a "top, top striker" and said he knew the pressure the Tottenham Hotspur striker was under to deliver having failed to score at Euro 2016.

"That's why he's in the team and Gary Cahill isn't".

The Montpellier man was asked to largely take sole responsibilities for ball-winning duties in the heart of the park, and it ought not have come as too much of a surprise that Tunisia were so overrun early on.

"It's about players who have the ability to bring the ball out, drag players towards them and play behind them".

Neville said on ITV Sport: "With five minutes to go I was anxious thinking deja vu, thinking getting on that plane tonight those young players with only two who have started in a World Cup, waking up in the morning to what wouldn't have been negative media, but an anxiety and nervousness".

The Liverpool skipper said: "We can be friends off the field but when you're on the field it's important that you're fighting for your mate next to you".

"We were able to play head-to-head and a draw would have been an excellent result for us". You can not trust us to recover from a bad result in the opening game.
