The remarkable social media stats behind England's World Cup victory

Cristiano Ronaldo

England's win over Tunisia proved popular with British TV audiences as a peak of over 18M viewers tuned in to see Harry Kane score a last-minute header against the African team.

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

"If things are not working he's got a big voice in the dressing room, everyone listens to him", said Trippier.

We were all fairly new to each other in that tournament and now we've managed to build relationships and the team really is a team now. They're going to need Kane to be at his best once again if they want to top the group.

"I want to prove a point in major tournaments".

Alli, with just two goals in 26 matches for England, also needs to raise his game for his country and show the form he displays regularly for Tottenham.

I am pretty sure there were many fans waiting to berate the players at fulltime before Kane's late victor.

"In 1990 when we did well and got to the semi-finals of the World Cup, we had Gary Lineker as well as a world-class player like Gazza (Paul Gascoigne)".

"It is created to enable (manager Gareth) Southgate to select more attack-minded, technical players with the added protection of three centre-backs and a holding midfielder".

"To be the best player in the world, you have to aim that high".

England can't expect to win this World Cup unless at least one of them is able to relieve the pressure on Kane by finding their goal scoring touch in Russian Federation.

England face Panama in their next Group game on Sunday, and will be aware that if they beat the Central American minnows they will be all but guaranteed to progress to the knockout stages.

"As a player, sometimes the less information the better", he said.

After scoring a spectacular goal in a man-of-the-match display against Costa Rica in England's send-off friendly, Rashford was forced to miss England's first two days of training in Russian Federation with a knee complaint.

"If we were to get a draw it would have been an excellent result for us". I can see Rose or Eric Dier playing, or Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who looked very positive, showing good touch and awareness, when he came on against Tunisia. Hopefully he can keep that going in the competition.
