Kane brace ensures England defeat Tunisia in World Cup opener

Kane brace ensures England defeat Tunisia in World Cup opener

Skipper Harry Kane scored a brace on Monday Night as England recorded a 2-1 win over Tunisia in their Group G opener at the 2018 World Cup.

 


Kane had sent England into an 11th-minute lead, but Ferjani Sassi leveled the scores from the penalty spot 10 minutes before the break, and it appeared that the points would be shared in Volgograd.

Kane was on hand to convert from close range and England could have been 2-0 up with Stones mis-kicking from six yards and Jesse Lingard being denied after his shot deflected wide.

 

Tunisia though grabbed a leveler when Kyle Walker caught Ben Youssef with his arm with no apparent danger.

The referee pointed to the penalty spot, allowing Ferjani Sassi to squeeze his penalty past the diving Jordan Pickford.

 

The Three Lions captain came up with a stoppage-time winner, however, as Gareth Southgate’s side started their campaign with three points.
