Buzz kill: Gnats swarm players during Tunisia v England game

Buzz kill: Gnats swarm players during Tunisia v England game

And Kane confirmed England players had found it tough to cope with certain aspects of the atmosphere despite his own personal heroics.

Yet as the stadium announcer in Volgograd played "Football's Coming Home", England's lament to their years of hurt at global level as they started their latest major tournament adventure on Monday night, a familiar story was set to unfold once again.

"I wanted to make a mark at the World Cup", he said.

If England march into the quarter-finals with a dominant win in the last-16 and show signs that their frailties of yesteryear have been erased, then the hype machine can crank into gear with justifiable glee.

Live coverage begins at 12.15pm on BBC One, and as ever the broadcast will be anchored by former England striker and 1986 World Cup Golden Boot victor Gary Lineker.

Mohamed Salah is not world-class, says Cheryshev
Entering this World Cup, the fitness of Liverpool and Egypt star Mo Salah was news topic 1A (1b was the Spain manager upheaval and subsequent drama).

But if you scratch beneath the surface with England, you will not find much depth in the goal scoring department outside of Kane.

This electric video was shot inside the O2 Academy on Cookridge Street in Leeds, where nearly 1400 packed in to cheer on Gareth Southgate's troops to a 2-1 over Tunisia on Monday night.

Ronaldo and Messi have shared the last 10 Ballon d'Or titles, awarded to the best player in the world. Under-used by Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this season, the 20-year-old's pace and readiness to try something different shone brightly against Costa Rica at Elland Road, with his stunning goal reminding Southgate of his ability to be a game-changer. He left them in 2014 to join Hull City in the Premier League and has not looked back since.

One potential concern for England could be the fitness of Deli Alli, who pulled up in the first half, but continued to play on until the 80th minute.

With one flick of Kane's neck, the English bandwagon rolled into motion.
