Egyptian referee to take charge of England's clash with Panama

Kane collected the match-ball following his World Cup hat-trick in the 6-1 win over Panama

Kane collected the match-ball following his World Cup hat-trick in the 6-1 win over Panama

Gareth Southgate's squad are safely through to the last 16, thanks to a 6-1 demolition of an overmatched Panama team.

Gomez gushed over the record-breaking England performance at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium, which was the most one-sided result of the tournament in Russian Federation.

Lukaku and Kane will go head to head on Thursday as they have so often in the Premier League and with England's goal difference boosted by the rout against Panama (who pulled a goal back later on to huge cheers from their many fans in the stadium), Southgate's side are exactly level with Belgium (with two wins, eight scored and two conceded).

"They were so precise, so accurate".

Going off the mannerisms and open palm hand gesture, plenty reckon he was telling the England boss to take it easy and get his team to rest on five goals.

Kane is happy for supporters to dream of success on the world stage but he knows there is a long way to go if he is to lift the trophy on July 15.

"I think England are totally spectacular - a lovely team". First, the Three Lions kept their cool and found a way to beat a stubborn Tunisia team in their opening match and, on Sunday, they made light work of a pitiful Panama side in Nizhny Nodgorov. It'll be an attacking game as both teams are through so we'll see what happens.

Gomez, the Panama gaffer, would have undoubtedly been fearing the worst and the cameras captured him trotting over to Southgate for a little chat in the dugout just before the second half got under way.

"What we tried to do after that was to avoid an even bigger catastrophe".

"Had we not done that our losing margin would have been far more than six goals". The 37-year-old scored Panama's first ever World Cup goal.

Gomez said he had no complaints about the two penalties awarded to England, both thrashed in by captain Harry Kane.

Liverpool captain Henderson, who skippered his country after Kane was substituted, almost added a seventh 18 minutes from time when his controlled volley whistled just past the post, before Felipe Baloy scored a late consolation for Panama.
