England dare to dream after record win

Harry Kane leads England into World Cup 2018 knockouts

Kane netted a hat-trick, as the Three Lions hammered Panama 6-1 on Sunday afternoon, to book their place in the final 16.

Current World Cup top scorer on five goals after two games, Kane was then substituted, to an ovation from the almost 2,500 England fans.

Kane's hat-trick was completed in freaky fashion in the 62nd minute after a Ruben Loftus-Cheek deflected off the English captain's heel into the net.

Ahead of their meeting on Thursday to decide who tops Group G, England and Belgium are level on points, goal difference and goals scored.

Harry Kane topped the goalscoring charts, overtaking the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo and one England fan went viral because he somehow managed to hold two pints in one hand and a flag in the other. "We wouldn't swap him for anyone in the tournament in terms of No. 9s", Southgate said.

Kane was pleased with the manner of victory but cautioned there's still a long way to go if England are to lift the trophy.

In two games, he has scored all five of his shots.

Jamie Vardy replaced Kane after 63 minutes while the likes of Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck looked on from the substitutes' bench, and Southgate said the players with less game time under their belts in Russian Federation were in his thoughts. The way we played, the discipline, the hard work. "You know that when he gets opportunities he's going to bury them".

South Korea, US suspend major military exercise
The UFG is a command post exercise based on computer simulated war games centreing on a scenario of an all-out war with the North. North Korea has opposed joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea as rehearsals for invasion.

The next tiebreaker is fair play - i.e. the amount of yellow and red cards accumulated by a team throughout the group stage.

Two wins from two Group G games put England through to the last 16 in Russian Federation and left Southgate with the option to rest key players in his side's final group game on Thursday.

"We feel very proud of ourselves".

TSN soccer analyst Terry Dunfield said he thinks the English side could be primed to break out in a big way Sunday if they can keep the pressure and pace on Panama.

# This is only the fifth time in World Cup history that a team has scored 5+ goals in the first half of a match, with Germany vs Brazil in the 2014 semi-final the most recent occasion.

"You have to believe, to achieve anything you want in life you have to believe", Kane said.
