KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Kane scored twice to earn England a well deserved victory in their first World Cup group game against Tunisia - including a stoppage time victor that sent England fans into delirium.

Gareth Southgate's side had captain Harry Kane to thank on Monday night, after his injury-time victor secured England a 2-1 win over Tunisia.

Paul Merson though, capped 21 times by England, was far from pleased with what he saw from the number nine.

Despite only playing for the last 10 minutes, a promising competitive debut meant 22-year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek was just behind as the fourth most Googled player. "They've all got roles to play". It's fair to say that, unlike the majority of his England teammates, the softly-spoken Maguire hasn't played in the really big games, domestically or in Europe.

How many goals has Harry Kane scored for England?

It is such a good feeling to have won his country three points at a World Cup - it does not get any better than that - so I am sure he is enjoying it, and he deserves to.

How much do England players get paid?

That was the Harry Kane we know from the past four Premier League seasons, and it was a huge contrast to his opening performance at Euro 2016 against Russian Federation.

Is Vardy in the England squad?

That looks a tough prospect for a side who lost their most gifted play-maker, Youssef Msakni, to injury before the tournament.

That's some turnaround, especially as Maguire only made his worldwide debut last October and plays for a team that hovered in the middle of the Premier League for most of last season.

Brazil's 1-1 draw against Switzerland also broke sports TV records with a combined 55.89 million viewers in Brazil and 79.33% share for media outlet Globo's coverage.

In England's favour, Robson senses a strong team spirit and he feels that is a credit to manager Gareth Southgate.

Kane will be out to prove Merson and his other critics wrong and to continue his exceptional scoring form against Panama on June 24, before a clash with fellow European giants Belgium awaits on June 28.
