  • Harry Kane leads England into World Cup 2018 knockouts

At least 5,000 more fans will board flights this week as "World Cup fever" takes over after the England team thrashed Panama 6-1 today.

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 Tottenham striker bagged his third after a 61st minute shot by Ruben Loftus-Cheek hit his foot and bounced in.

It is predicted a wave of fans will dash to Russian Federation ahead of England's last group game with Belgium on Thursday in Kalinigrad.

Legend Geoff Hurst was the hero on that occasion, scoring a hat-trick in England's most famous triumph. We wouldn't swap him for anyone in terms of number nines. "There's still a long way to go", the 24-year-old said.

"Even in St. Petersburg there were still people closing the roads off for us when we were returning to the training base (in nearby Repino) at 5am after the Tunisia game".

"He's up at the top", said England manager Southgate.

A victor of 57 England caps as a player, Southgate has earned rave reviews for creating a more relaxed and open environment between players, press and fans.

In reversal, Trump orders halt to his family separation rule
But the executive order, a Health and Human Services official said, doesn't at all address reuniting families already separated. Donald Trump has said he will sign an executive order ending the forced separation of children and parents at the border.

It was by far the most convincing win of the World Cup so far as Gareth Southgate's side knocked six, I repeat six, past minnows Panama.

England's final group game comes on Thursday evening when they take on Belgium in Kaliningrad.

"I guess the bits in the middle were pretty good, but I am being hyper-critical", he said.

"Very odd because I think we probably at times played better the other night than we have done today, but today we were really ruthless in front of goal. England is totally spectacular, a handsome team", said coach Hernan Dario Gomez, who went into the English changing room at halftime to congratulate Southgate. "We've got to keep it going but, yes, you have to believe".

For England fans, the pain of being knocked out by Iceland in the 2016 Euros and a winless first-round exit at the 2014 World Cup, was finally slipping away.

"We were ruthless in front of goal", Southgate said.

"England v Belgium is always an exciting game to watch for the fans so I think we want to go in and put on a good performance for the fans, but also ourselves".
