England Gareth Southgate 2018 FIFA World Cup Tunisia

It's not long before England kick off against Tunisia in the first game of their World Cup campaign.

Out in Volgograd, where the game took place, 2,000 or so hardy supporters erupted into ecstasy.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker had not scored at a major tournament after drawing a blank at the last European Championship, but Southgate labelled him a "top, top striker" after his man-of-the-match display.

The England captain popped up in the dying stages of the game to score, securing all three points against Tunisia.

All in good spirits no doubt but there's nothing like the World Cup for fanning the flames even if we're not involved.

The Osaka prefectural government's disaster management department confirmed the girl's death and the death of an older man. Two men in their 80s also died, news reports said. "I saw the ceiling and the floor undulating, and I could barely stand.

However, neither Vardy nor Rashford have done enough to break into the starting team themselves. "There's plenty of goals I've seen all over this team and I think if everyone's chipping in and pulling in the same direction it just sets us up right for the next game". The Leicester forward is a proven impact sub, but he has appeared incompatible with Kane and, like Welbeck, it is hard to envisage Vardy starting in Russian Federation. "He sent a lot of love hearts and said "Come on England"," said Kane.

The Manchester City winger was sensational under Pep Guardiola for the Premier League champions last season, scoring 18 league goals and creating 11 assists, but his England output is dismal in comparison.

Fans clambered over one another as "Freed from desire" played in the background.

With one flick of Kane's neck, the English bandwagon rolled into motion. "England's finishing in open play does need to improve".
