England far from flawless but victorious to start World Cup

   WORLD CUP Former England captain Steven Gerrard is offering the nation free beer

GW: There were two defenders on the line for Tunisia, which meant Harry Kane was not offside, even though he was was, like, right in front of the goal-and completely open, by the way.

"There could have been a couple of penalties. A few corners, they were trying to grab, hold and stop us running", said Kane. They almost grabbed a point, too. "We did the right things and made good decisions and were good value for the win". That's football, that's the ref.

"It shows good character to get the job done".

'We wish we had Kane!' headlined Bild on Tuesday morning, and they weren't the only ones who thought so. England allowed carelessness to creep in at the back and offered a limited Tunisia team the chance to get back into a game they should have been out of within the opening half-hour.

"We have different profiles of players in different positions, but that means you can work on more specifics in the week". He found himself more isolated against three physical centre-backs, muscled out too often by Dylan Bronn, a right-back from Gent, Syam Ben Youssef, a regular at Kasimpasa in Turkey, or Yassine Meriah, who has played his entire career in his native Tunisia.

Harry Kane argued justice had been done after the England captain nodded his side's stoppage-time victor having seen two vociferous penalty appeals for fouls by Yassine Meriah waved away by the Colombian referee, Wilmar Roldan.

If a World Cup cannot inspire a nation, then I'm not sure what can", said the English FA technical director Dan Ashworth. But a chat with the player saw a greatly improved performance against the Central Americans.

"I'm so proud of the lads, it's tough". Credit to the lads, we kept going. "We kept going. We spoke a lot about togetherness and we've got a great bond together", Kane said.

Harry Kane's stoppage-time victor delivered England's answer to Belgium's earlier win against Panama and gave them their first opening-game win at a major tournament in 12 years.

"In the Premier League it probably wasn't a foul, but in the World Cup it was", Walker said. In its opener against Tunisia, The Three Lions were locked in a 1-1 tie for most of the match and headed for a gut-punch of a draw.

"We put people under pressure even after we had scored our first goal".

"We created so many clear cut chances, especially in the first half, and were in total control in the second half".

Ferdinand: "England set their stall out from the start and their intensity and idea to press the ball in the first half was ideal because it sets the tone and it is hard to deal with". We have realities that are not there in other continents, but I think that the African continent is full of qualities.
