Gary Neville on 'real deal' Harry Kane and England's approach to Belgium

Dele Alli

Harry Kane struck a hat-trick as England's young and free-flowing team banished the ghost of past failures with a record 6-1 thrashing of feeble Panama on Sunday that eased them into the last 16.

The 24-year-old English captain became a national hero pretty quick at this World Cup after scoring two goals - including a handsome victor in stoppage time - in England's opening 2-1 win over Tunisia last week.

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

With five goals in two games in his World Cup debut, Kane is the leading scorer at this year's World Cup - one ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku.

New Zealand prime minister gives birth to baby girl
The 37-year-old will take six weeks of maternity leave , and has now passed on her duties to Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters. New Zealand has long had a progressive reputation and was the first country to give women the right to vote in 1893.

Four years ago, England failed to win a match at the World Cup and was eliminated in the group stage.

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. We wouldn't swap him for anyone in the tournament in terms of No 9s because you know that, when he gets opportunities, he'll bury them.

The party scenes on Saturday night were in marked contrast to Friday night, when few England fans had arrived in the city and Panama supporters created a carnival atmosphere.

"So I think there are a lot of question marks, but I think what does remain is the fact that this on paper is one of the best teams at this tournament and if they get it right they can do very well".

European Union retaliatory tariffs on United States products to come into effect on Friday
Mexico retaliated against the move two weeks ago while Canada said it would place tariffs on U-S exports from July the first. The EU, which is the world's biggest trading bloc, has taken its case to the World Trade Organization.

The first goal came from Manchester City defender John Stones on eight minutes, who scored his first ever global goal. "They are architecturally lovely", Southgate said.

Before, during and after the match, England fans have been getting carried away and why the hell not.

We suggest skipping the midnight matches as Group A comes to a close when Uruguay play Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia take on Egypt, given who progresses out of that pool is already decided.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was the only England player to be booked, and with the fair play ranking a strong possibility to decide who tops the group, Southgate said he was "really pleased that we didn't get involved and come out with just that one yellow".
