Kane fires England to record 6-1 win against Panama

Harry Kane leads England into World Cup 2018 knockouts

England's excellent first half against Panama on Sunday afternoon saw them score four goals in a World Cup match for the time since the 1966 final against West Germany.

Leading from the front, he marshalled England to their biggest World Cup victory, scored two superb penalties and got his hat-trick when a shot clipped the back of his heel.

Kane's hat-trick was completed in freaky fashion in the 62nd minute after a Ruben Loftus-Cheek deflected off the English captain's heel into the net.

Intriguingly, it also means they are level on points, goal difference and goals scored with Belgium in Group G. The two sides meet in Kaliningrad on Thursday.

It was the second hat-trick of the World Cup with Ronaldo having put the ball past David De Gea three times in Portugal's opening fixture. "We wouldn't swap him for anyone in the tournament in terms of No. 9s", Southgate said.

"It's going well, there's still a long way to go, the most important thing is winning games", Kane said. We can go into the Belgium game with confidence.

Playing from the off with an ease and trickery that contrasted with the stressed-looking England flops of recent worldwide tournaments, Gareth Southgate's team romped into a remarkable 5-0 lead at halftime. We played some really good stuff for 35-40 minutes but then of course the second half was more hard.

"Very odd because I think we probably at times played better the other night than we have done today, but today we were really ruthless in front of goal".

"I guess the bits in the middle were pretty good, but I am being hyper-critical", he said.

"We knew before the game it would be aggressive, and they'd do everything they could to stop us".

Travel firm ABTA added: "It's been World Cup fever since England's win in the first game". If you want to achieve anything in life you have to believe. "England is totally spectacular, a attractive team", said coach Hernan Dario Gomez, who went into the English changing room at halftime to congratulate Southgate. Panama paid the price for their petulant immaturity as the Three Lions ran riot and scored with what felt like every scoring opportunity they had before half-time - indeed, their first three shots on targets were all goals.
