forward Harry Kane (2ndR) celebrates with teammates after scoring his team's sixth goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group G football match between England and Panama at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod on June 24, 2018.

England fans have been reacting with glee and surprise as the national team thrashed Panama 6-1 in the World Cup.

It was also only the fifth time in World Cup history that a team has scored five or more goals in the first half.

Kane's three goals included two penalties and a deflection he knew little about to move ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku in the Golden Boot race.


The Red Devils are now unbeaten in their last 10 World Cup group matches, which may pose a considerable problem for England when they lock horns with the group favourites.

Kane didn't have to wait long to add to his tally, converting from the penalty spot in the 22nd after Lingard was brought down by Fidel Escobar.

"Over the next 36 hours or so we have to decide what our priority is and, for me, the harmony of the group is very high on that list", said Southgate, who allayed fears over Kieran Trippier's fitness and hopes to have Dele Alli available against Belgium.

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard started and scored for England in their second match in the World Cup which came against the physical Panama.


All the England players on this occasion got carried away and forgot about this rule, so judging by FIFA's official rulebook, Panama should have been allowed to kick off and have all of their player's bearing down on Pickford's goal which would surely have lead to a goal for the minnows. "Top bins" as they say. We've got to keep it going but, yes, you have to believe.

A picture of the England manager writing in a notepad emerged online and well, people think they've worked it all out.

"There are a lot of good players just behind me".

Balague immediately got destroyed by England fans, with over 1,300 fans commenting and counting.


If England draw against Belgium in their group-stage finale and manage not to book up more yellow cards then their opponents, then Southgate's men will finish top.
