Dele Alli injury: Tottenham midfielder offers England headache as thigh strain confirmed

Harry Kane was the saviour for England as he score an injury-time victor to lead his team to a 2-1 win over Tunisia in the opening match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup at the Volgograd Arena in Volgograd on Tuesday.

A much-changed England side bowed out tamely with a goalless draw against Costa Rica and would have to wait four more years for Kane to end their wait for a two-goal performance. "Togetherness and believing in ourselves".

"In terms of Harry, if he doesn't score tonight I'm sitting answering questions about his ability to score goals in tournament football".

A disappointing tournament under Roy Hodgson's management saw England eliminated with a game to spare in Group D after 2-1 defeats to Italy, as Mario Balotelli's victor rendered Daniel Sturridge's equaliser meaningless, and Uruguay after a Luis Suarez brace was enough to overcome Wayne Rooney's strike.

British Embassy officials in Russian Federation have sounded an optimistic note ahead of England's first match at the World Cup, praising Volgograd for the welcome it has given the Three Lions' travelling support. Both times, the referee decided against punishing the culprits.

"You go until the last second", Kane said, "and I'm absolutely buzzing".

"They're ready", Southgate told England's official website.

Focus on Harry Kane – England's captain and match-winner

England seemed destined for a familiar hard-luck story - dominance with little to show for it. Kane's job was to lead the line and provide a focal point for attacks with Sterling, Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard providing pace around him.

Chances to regain the advantage were squandered. "The control from the back with the ball".

"Personally (I think) it should not be used at the best, most prestigious tournament in the world".

For Kane, wearing the captain's armband is only making him more prolific.

Cueva horribly miscued the spot-kick however, with Poulsen scoring the only goal of the game for the Danes. Fans of the side were vastly outnumbered by Tunisians in the stadium and the fanzone earlier in the day.

This led the Foreign Affairs Committee of backbench MPs to write a very pessimistic report earlier this month about the United Kingdom government's readiness for incidents involving England fans at Russian Federation 2018.

FIFA is satisfied with the operation of the innovative VAR (Video Assistance Referee) system at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Norway's NRK television channel said on Sunday, citing the world's governing football body.
