He has made one hell of a start. After the disappointing events of 2014, it may be stores didn't see the point in celebrating the World Cup this year.

Completing the list of most popular tweets of the evening were England's official account announcing the starting line-up and Kane's victor - and these two funnies.

In England, the national side - who play again on Sunday at 1pm - are unsurprisingly the most searched team so far during the group stages - making up 23% of teams searched for.

Kane's two goals in the Volgograd Arena took his overall England tally to 15 in 25 appearances, with 10 of those coming in eight games under Southgate.

"We have to prepare as perfectly for Panama to make sure we get the result in that game we need".

For 45 minutes it looked just like it should have done when England face Tunisia . "Go out there and play your own game, be free". And that is an issue which is beginning to rear its head for Southgate ahead of Sunday's clash with Panama in Nizhny-Novgorod.

Maguire said getting the late victor could prove to be a bigger positive for the England lineup than winning the game by a comfortable margin. It's good to have variety; it will become hard the further England get if they are always singing the same song. It's fair to say that, unlike the majority of his England teammates, the softly-spoken Maguire hasn't played in the really big games, domestically or in Europe. Hopefully Monday's victory will put an end to people talking about what happened there. Harry Kane's stoppage-time strike sent Three Lions fans into raptures and gave England plenty of reasons to be optimistic about qualifying for the knockout stage. It did to me, because I loved the pressure and added responsibility of leading my country. I get on very well with him. He has justified Gareth's decision already, not that he had to as far as I am concerned.

Despite his World Cup heroics, Merson actually thought Kane was "poor" on Monday.

"Unfortunately for England, you can't trust us". As a striker, you never know when the next chance is going to come.

The Manchester United forward replaced Raheem Sterling in the 68th minute of a match he may well have started had it not been for injury. "As with everything it needs improving and I think it will improve in time".

Kane's two goals against Tunisia mean he is in the race for the Golden Boot, but with a long way to go in the tournament, Kane will be hoping to continue his scoring form against Panama and Belgium.
