Kane fires England to record 6-1 win against Panama

England secures spot in World Cup round of 16 with win over Panama

England secures spot in World Cup round of 16 with win over Panama

England qualify for second round after thrashing Panama with Harry Kane hat-trick.

It was the first time in England's history they have managed five goals in a first half and Kane became the first England player to score a World Cup hat-trick since Gary Lineker in 1986.

The rout was the first time England have scored more than four goals at a World Cup finals since winning the tournament in 1966.

Kane's three goals included two penalties and a deflection he knew little about to move ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku in the Golden Boot race.

Paul McCartney Runs Through Beatles Classics in Liverpool on Supersized 'Carpool Karaoke'
McCartney made it even more poignant when he told Corden: "He is". "And I remember them playing me that". Calling on Paul , the chat show host quoted The Beatles' , singing, "I need somebody, not just anybody.

The only blot on the copybook was a late Panama goal, meaning that England go into their final Group G game deadlocked with Belgium at the top of the table.

From there Belgium went on to win the match comfortably, but it certainly was not routine for the side, and numerous Belgium faithful remain unconvinced by manager Martinez, though Lampard believes if he can get his tactics right, then they will be a real threat this summer. "We had fun out there", said current tournament top scorer Kane, calling his third "one of the luckiest goals of my life".

Kane - who now has five goals in two matches - scored two first-half penalties as Gareth Southgate's side ran riot in Nizhny Novgorod, earning a 5-0 half-time lead.

"Over the next 36 hours or so we have to decide what our priority is and, for me, the harmony of the group is very high on that list", said Southgate, who allayed fears over Kieran Trippier's fitness and hopes to have Dele Alli available against Belgium.

England's thumping 6-1 win over Panama was as routine as they come wasn't it? "Clearly the stage to do that is this one", said Southgate.

As is desperately obvious in global football, one world class player can make all the difference, and England fans are dreaming of Kane leading them to glory.

"There are a lot of good players just behind me".

England manager Gareth Southgate has heaped praise on the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup infrastructure and stadiums and admits he and his team have "been really looked after" in the country.
