It's been a journey for Harry Maguire from England fan to player

It's been a journey for Harry Maguire from England fan to player

"If he hadn't scored, I'd be answering questions about his ability to score in tournament football", Gareth Southgate said of his captain after his brace against Tunisia on Monday night.

Harry Kane's late heroics in Volgograd saw the Three Lions start the World Cup with a victory for the first time since 2006.

"You can see England going through to the next stages and that's when the real pressure comes on, and we'll see how well the boys can do". They're going to need Kane to be at his best once again if they want to top the group. I want to be up there with the best in the world and the only way to do that is to perform on the big stage and in the big moments.

"England are a big team with very good players but we will try to win".

"We have confidence among ourselves anyway".

He said: 'The Euros were disappointing for me, for everyone, so it was a challenge to put that right. "What pleased me was that we kept the control and composure", he told reporters.


"No matter what system we play, the important thing is when you are attacking you still have structure in your play".

"To be the best player in the world, you have to aim that high".

In England's favour, Robson senses a strong team spirit and he feels that is a credit to manager Gareth Southgate.

It was from Maguire's headed pass that the other Harry - Kane that is - nodded in for England's victor in stoppage time.

Maguire, who started his career at Sheffield United and had a spell at Hull City, will hope to retain his place in England's second Group G fixture against Panama on Sunday.

After scoring a spectacular goal in a man-of-the-match display against Costa Rica in England's send-off friendly, Rashford was forced to miss England's first two days of training in Russian Federation with a knee complaint. "So I'm delighted he scored two goals and hopefully there's many more for him to come in this tournament". I also felt that since Belgium can make it far, Lukaku will play more games, giving him an obvious edge to score more. We have not done well in recent years and there is not much else than could go wrong.
