England have a new ‘prince’ Harry

AFP

AFP, VOLGOGRAD (RUSSIA): Harry Kane rose emphatically to the World Cup challenge in England's opening match against Tunisia, scoring a last-gasp winner to give Gareth Southgate's side lift-off in Russia.

It was a remarkable World Cup debut for Kane, who bore the added pressure of the captain's armband and the weight of a nation on his 24-year-old shoulders.

Kane, scorer of a remarkable 59 Premier League goals in the past two seasons, was even goaded by a Russian reporter in the pre-match press conference about his lack of silverware.

“Maybe I'll be sitting here in four weeks with the big gold one,” he quipped back.

He scored both, the second in breathless fashion with a clever, composed, far-post header as the clock ticked past 90 minutes to give England a precious 2-1 win.

The last man to score twice for England in a World Cup match was 1986 Golden Boot winner Gary Lineker, against Cameroon in Italia 90.

And in one match Kane now has doubled the World Cup goals tally of England's record scorer Wayne Rooney, who played in the 2006, 2010 and 2014 tournaments.

Kane's stats are compelling: he has eight goals in the six games he has worn the England armband, 11 in his past eight games for the Three Lions.

There will be harder battles ahead, Belgium lie in wait after Panama on Sunday. But Monday was a dream start for Harry, England's new prince.
