England's young and free-flowing team banished the ghost of past national failures with a record 6-1 thrashing of feeble Panama on Sunday (June 24) that included a hat-trick by Harry Kane and eased them into the last 16.

Most importantly of all, in Kane they have a striker the whole world will now fear.

In other action, Japan and Senegal will go head-to-head in Group H action after they both picked up victories in their opening games.

England take on Belgium in their final Group G clash on Thursday.

However, it could be more favourable for the runners-up in Group G, who could face a quarterfinal against, for instance, Mexico or Switzerland rather than winners of Brazil vs. Germany.

A similar situation could arise in Group B too, as Spain and Portugal have identical records at the time of writing as well. The Group A winners will play the Group B runner-up, after which Group B winners will play Group A's second place finisher.


Kane netted two unstoppable first-half penalties before a fortuitous third in the second period to become the first man since former Barcelona and Spurs striker Gary Lineker in 1986 to score a World Cup hattrick.

He even managed to douse the flames of the first media storm of England's World Cup on the eve of the Panama match - over whether journalists should reveal his team selections by recognising the press should not be cheerleaders. Our set plays were also a threat and that was pleasing to see.

"We are just enjoying it", said Kane.

"The problem Martinez has is that with so many great players how do you put them together, and I think he has had selection issues, which of course are good problems, but people will always have a view on whether Kevin De Bruyne should play higher up to the pitch or whether Nainggolan should have been in the squad".

"It's a brilliant result, fantastic to be through and to do it in this way is brilliant".

The Red Devils are now unbeaten in their last 10 World Cup group matches, which may pose a considerable problem for England when they lock horns with the group favourites.
