Twitterati can not wait for ‘clinical’ England’s thriller against Belgium

England break World Cup record as Harry Kane joins elite group of legends

England produced a historic display against Panama

Harry Kane scored a historic hat-trick.

"Lingard and Loftus-Cheek no comfortable there". Although luck has nothing to do with how well England are playing, albeit against poor opponents.

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

And they didn't just win.

"It depends how the stars align, it was looking like the quarters, where will probably meet Brazil or Germany, but those teams aren't performing too well, so if we get a good run into the semis then anything can happen".

Brigid Simmonds, the Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said the World Cup had provided a welcome boost to the industry. Perhaps keeping in mind the limited nature of their opponents, a free-kick from Kieran Trippier set off an nearly domino effect of passes, before, thankfully for Raheem Sterling, Stones was on hand to head in his rebounded effort from close range.

And thank goodness - he has been itching to crack out the Fortnite dance for days.

Senegal and Japan drew 2-2 in their encounter in Ekaterinburg, as substitute Keisuke Honda rescued a point for his side in a pulsating game. It's whether he makes a number of changes to give other players a chance or to see other things before the knockout stage.

England look certain to qualify for the last 16 along with Belgium, whom they face in their final Group G fixture on Thursday.


Panama might have been 6-0 down when they scored against England but that did not stop the fans present from celebrating wildly.

Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku are in second place with four goals each.

'The third one is probably one of the luckiest goals of my career, ' Kane said after the game. "You don't get many opportunities to play in a game like that for England".

"Obviously it's been going well so far". Not many players get to score a hat-trick in the World Cup.

"They feel a bit closer to the fans than previous teams - and that probably comes from the manager", added Runtwe, who was wearing a vintage 2001 England shirt.

This penchant for choreography was certainly on show for Stones' second. The scenes inside the stadium among the Panama fans were wild.

Honda has now scored at three World Cups.

In two games, he has scored all five of his shots.
