Kane disappointed by refereeing decisions despite England win

Tunisia vs England Tips – How we think the Three Lions’ World Cup opener will play out

England captain Harry Kane has scored twice including a stoppage-time victor to lead his side to a last-gasp 2-1 win over Tunisia in the Three Lions' opening World Cup match.

Harry Kane rose emphatically to the World Cup challenge in England's opening match against Tunisia, scoring a last-gasp victor to give Gareth Southgate's side lift-off in Russian Federation.

England made a superb start at the Volgograd Arena when Kane lashed the home from close range in the 11th minute, but the lead lasted 24 minutes before Tunisia drew level from the penalty spot through Ferjani Sassi.

Gareth Southgate's men nearly paid a heavy price for missing a slew of first half chances (Jesse Lingard being the worst offender) when Tunisia's Ferjani Sassi slotted home a softly-awarded penalty 20 minutes before the interval.

Harry Kane's goal in second-half stoppage time ensured England took all three points from its Group G opener and Southgate praised his substitutes for adding energy and threat late in the game.

The former Denmark global believes Walker should have been sent off for the foul, although was happy to see England come away with three points after a 2-1 win.

The Three Lions dominated the opening exchanges of the game but their wastefulness in front of goal was becoming a worry until Harry Kane finally prodded in the opener following a scramble in the box. "And good teams score late". "Credit to the lads though, as we kept going and that's what these World Cup games are about - it is about going up until the last second and absolutely buzzing". It's a reputation that's tarnished them - somewhat unduly - over the years, but if ever there was a time to lean back on those "virtues" this was it. "Even at 1-1, I was really proud of the performance".

"I thought they were pretty ordinary", Dunphy said on RTE Sport. "Maybe tonight we could have run out of time, but I believe the best teams in the world have that belief in what they are doing and in the end they break teams down".

The Tottenham striker got his first tournament goals and it might have been more had the referee seen a couple of blatant fouls on Kane, both of which should have resulted in penalties for England. You train hard, work hard and do a lot of stuff but recovery is just as important. Hassen saved acrobatically but Kane was on hand to tap home the rebound with his right foot and open his World Cup account. But again, the officials allowed play to continue with no word to the contrary from VAR referee Sandro Ricci and his team.
