England and Panama fans party until dawn

England and Panama fans party until dawn

Captain Harry Kane scored a hat-trick as Panama went down 6-1 in what was England's biggest victory margin at the World Cup and their highest scoring game since 1966.

Southgate was speaking at the press conference after his England side thrashed minnows Panama 6-1 in their Group G game at Nizhny Novgorod Arena.

Kane's three goals moved him into the lead with five at this year's tournament, one more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku after two games.

Four years ago, England failed to win a match at the World Cup and was eliminated in the group stage.

A win for Germany in their final group game against South Korea will see them qualify to the next round, though it will be as runners-up should Mexico avoid defeat against Sweden.

In other action, Japan and Senegal will go head-to-head in Group H action after they both picked up victories in their opening games.

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Robson said: "When I first saw Jesse Lingard I thought he would never make it at Manchester United".

Petkovic is from Sarajevo". "So we have two coaches from Bosnia-Herzegovina representing different teams at the World Cup". A dream start ensued for Serbia when Aleksandar Mitrovic headed home a cross from Dusan Tadic in the fifth minute.

The Central Americans, ranked 55th in the world, were put to the sword as Harry Kane scored a hat-trick, John Stones bagged a brace, and Jesse Lingard completed the scoring for the Three Lions.

"We will send a protest to FIFA", Slavisa Kokeza said, unhappy a German referee was in charge of the fixture.

The goal - Panama's first at World Cup level - triggered an extremely emotional response in the stands.

England will now play Belgium in Kaliningrad on Thursday with the victor of that match advancing from the group in first place. We've got to keep it going but, yes, you have to believe.

"Extremely proud of the way we played, the hard work. and we also had fun out there as well which was important".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was the only England player to be booked, and with the fair play ranking a strong possibility to decide who tops the group, Southgate said he was "really pleased that we didn't get involved and come out with just that one yellow".

After some slightly, shall we say, "dubious" tactics from the Panama defence, the referee once again pointed to the spot for an England penalty.
