England's World Cup win over Tunisia gets biggest TV audience of 2018

England's World Cup win over Tunisia gets biggest TV audience of 2018

The Three Lions required an injury-time victor from captain Harry Kane to get past Tunisia despite starting well, with the North African side having equalised after the Spurs striker's opener.

"I have been itching to get out there and showcase myself on the big stage".

However, in today's society where there are quite literally hundreds of channels (most of them terrible) to choose from, and the freedom to watch things whenever you like via various technology, the BBC figures are testament to how overwhelmingly powerful football is in the UK. I want to be up there with the best in the world.

After Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo hit a hat trick to earn his side a draw against Spain in their opening game, Kane said he wanted to emulate the achievements of both Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

While some U.S. fans seemed happy with the idea of supporting England, others clearly weren't convinced by Corden's game plan.

"I was maybe a bit disappointed by that", Kane said. Kane, speaking to reporters as quoted by FourFourTwo, revealed what the Argentine had texted him post-game.

The way he played against Tunisia could not have been more different, not only down to the way he got his goals because he was brighter and sharper than anyone else in their box, but also because he is no longer taking our corners.

Maguire is exactly the kind of player coach Gareth Southgate wants in his ranks - young and unburdened by the failures of the recent past - as he seeks to change the narrative around the English national team following an era of underperformance.

Trump says he won’t sign ‘moderate’ immigration bill in GOP setback
Mario Diaz-Balart, a moderate Republican from Florida, told reporters that he was confident Trump would sign the legislation. Saddling the debate is mounting public outrage from both sides of the aisle over families being ripped apart at the border.

Meanwhile, the Saudi Arabian team landed safely in Rostov-on-Don yesterday after one of the engines on the plane carrying the players to a World Cup match appeared to catch fire.

But Sky Sports pundit Merson, who represented England at the 1998 World Cup, says Kane's all-round play was not good enough and needs to improve if England are to go far in the tournament.

Lukaku and Kane probably have the best chance to win the golden boot in the group stage.

"To be the best player in the world you have to aim high and you can't aim low".

England continue their Group G campaign against Panama on Sunday, before facing Belgium.

"That's the message we have tried to get across to the team". I would rather come here, attack it and score goals.

"It's a massive boost, a massive bonus, we kept going".
