  • GETTYTottenham transfer news Harry Kane has already put pen to paper

Deputy British Ambassador to Russia Lindsay Skoll, English FA chairman Greg Clarke and team's fans attend a wreath laying ceremony at the Mamayev Kurgan World War Two memorial complex in Volgograd, Russia June 18, 2018.

"What a relief", a weary-looking Alan Evans from Birmingham, wearing a white England top, said outside the stadium after captain Harry Kane struck twice to secure his country's opening Group G victory.

With the win, England is well positioned to advance out of the group stage, with a crucial matchup against Belgium looming on the horizon.

Euro 2016 ended in humiliation for Kane and England with a loss to Iceland in the last 16, but the team has been transformed by Southgate.

Nikola Kalinic: Croatia send striker home after back injury claim
Kalinic was an unused substitute against Nigeria with rumours emerging that he refused to go onto the pitch from the bench. Croatia are back in action against Argentina in Nizhny Novgorod on Thursday.

Players from both sides, but particularly those from England, spent an undue amount of time trying to ward them off during the match.

"My aim is to go out there with confidence and play my best for the team", Harry Kane said.

Numerous fans had taken the 18-hour train journey from Moscow, which is about 900 km (559.23 miles) to the north of Volgograd, and had built up a huge sense of anticipation before the game, believing that England would easily beat Tunisia. But England struggled to finish it off. "I thought we played really well in the first half, we could have scored a few more", Kane said.

"Maybe there was a bit of justice at the end", Kane said.

Mario Gomez isn't as talented, but he's experienced at this level and will provide a better target for all those crosses. With key players tiring in the second half, Mexico pulled back and substituted both Lozano and Carlos Vela.

England defender Kyle Walker swung an arm behind him and caught Fakhreddine Ben Youssef in the face and Colombia referee Wilmar Roldan pointed to the spot.

Gareth Southgate has said the Volgograd venue for England's World Cup opener against Tunisia on Monday serves as a reminder that some things are "even bigger than football".

We're going to win it.

"As of a [Richie] Smallwood for us, you can put in a destructive player like a [Jordan] Henderson or a [Eric] Dier in there to put out the fires and see what is happening".
