Russia 2018: Kane canes Tunisia

Kane had sent England into an 11th-minute lead, but Ferjani Sassi levelled the scores from the penalty spot 10 minutes before the break, and it appeared that the points would be shared in Volgograd

Harry Kane scored twice as England recorded a 2-1 win over Tunisia in their Group G opener at the 2018 World Cup.
Kane had sent England into an 11th-minute lead, but Ferjani Sassi levelled the scores from the penalty spot 10 minutes before the break, and it appeared that the points would be shared in Volgograd.
The Three Lions captain came up with a stoppage-time winner, however, as Gareth Southgate’s side started their campaign with three points.
The Three Lions were ahead in the 11th minute, however, when Kane turned home from close range.
Tunisia goalkeeper Hassen could only palm a powerful John Stones header into the box, and the England captain was on hand to convert.
Tunisia were level in the 35th minute, however, when Sassi sent a low penalty into the bottom corner after Kyle Walker had been penalised for putting an elbow into the face of Fakhreddine Ben Youssef.
VAR had a look at the decision, but it stood, and Tunisia’s number 13 sent the ball past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
England were having plenty of the ball as the match passed the hour, but Tunisia were sitting in and defending their lines.
Four additional minutes were added, and England stole all three points at the death when Kane nodded a Maguire flick into the back of the net from close range.
