Harry Kane scores hat trick in England's 6-1 rout of Panama

  • Ruben Loftus-Cheek

They conceded two penalties in the first half and Kane was on hand to gleefully dispatch them. "But if my goals can help the team win, then that's the ideal situation", Kane said. You want to keep that going right the way through the tournament.

Kane now has a tournament-leading five goals at the World Cup in Russian Federation, one more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku.

The figures were still behind England's first Group G match against Tunisia, which was watched by a total audience of 21 million - more than the royal wedding.

In the lead-up to the World Cup, Baloy - the team's captain despite coming on as a second-half substitute - had come in for criticism over his age and is "100 per cent sure" he will retire from global football at the conclusion of the World Cup, bringing to an end an worldwide career spanning more than 100 games.

"I know how many people were watching at home on a Sunday afternoon", England's coach, Gareth Southgate, said when it was over.

Harry Kane played a captain's role once more with a hat-trick to become the tournament's leading scorer, as England built on their opening victory against Tunisia with an impressive show of ruthlessness and quality. "If my goals are helping us win games then that's a good thing".

Too often under Roy Hodgson, another coach with vast European experience, England were slow and hesitant, leaving fans wondering why players who are so confident and effective with their Premier League clubs appear to freeze in an England shirt. John Stones headed in two goals and Jesse Lingard curled in another. Even locals were supporting the team in Nizhny Novgorod, despite the bitter diplomatic relations between Russian Federation and Britain.

Should there be proof either side have tried to engineer their disciplinary records during Thursday's game in order to finish second in Group G, Federation Internationale de Football Association is poised to act. Panama's marking of Stones from a Kieran Trippier corner was lax and it wasn't the last time that England would benefit from a corner. The next two goals came from the striker of the match, Harry Kane, who was unstoppable on the field.

Kane didn't have to wait long to add to his tally, converting from the penalty spot in the 22nd after Lingard was brought down by Fidel Escobar.

Gary Lineker on the goal-fest: "This is getting silly". But defender John Stones wasn't.

8 - Only in 1966 (11) have England scored more goals in a single World Cup tournament than they have in 2018 (8 - also in 1954 and 1990).

England was merciless. At 5-0, the job was complete by halftime. "But as I've said before, sometimes you go through spells where you score a lot and spells where you don't". What we did was to try to avoid a bigger catastrophe. We can't even reduce this distance.

On Lingard's rasping drive from the edge of the box, Schmeichel said: "It's a cracker, this is Jesse Lingard all over, he's done this for Manchester United on many occasions, and he's a guy who has the knack of scoring important goals, he's not everyone's favorite player... but he's got the number 7 jersey, that's significant, it means Southgate values him".

"But we were feeling rather frightened at half-time because of the huge difference between us and England, and also Belgium. At this moment my thoughts are with the players who haven't played as much, but I have to consider everything before I decide upon my team".

Baloy said: "Some of us players were attacked, criticized for our age".

England had spells of sloppy defending that could be punished by stronger teams, like Belgium.

"There is no chance of us taking our foot off the pedal".

There were many things to see for England and Panama, and it seems that good things are finally on the way for the Three Lions.

If Panama need a game after the World Cup, O'Neill's got them covered!

Both teams lost Group H openers and knew another loss would end their hopes of advancing.

In other matches, Japan and Senegal played out a 2-2 draw while Colombia registered a 3-0 win over Poland to seal a pre-quarterfinal spot.

Tottenham's Danny Rose came off the bench for England against Panama.

As it stands, the Three Lions are atop the group by fair play, as goals scored (eight) and goals against (two) are the same for both teams.

Moussa Wague restored Senegal's lead in the 71st minute.

"It could have been an even bigger score ..."
