Mile Jedinak’s trick, a ‘brutal robbery’ and England brilliance

It's a World Cup and everyone is fighting for their lives.

Kane's hat-trick took his tally to five goals at the World Cup, which in itself is another England record - no other England player had previously scored more than three at a World Cup group stage - and the striker is now the clear favourite at [3.3] to be the Top Tournament Goal Scorer.

John Stones headed in two goals and Jesse Lingard curled in another. The goal was an example of Kane's precision and clinical acumen.

Alli missed out on the match through injury but England certainly didn't miss him as they managed to destroy Panama 5-0 before the first half was even over. He has now joined Gary Lineker in 1986 vs Poland and Geoff Hurst in 1966 vs West Germany in achieving this feat.

England fans have been reacting with glee and surprise as the national team thrashed Panama 6-1 in the World Cup. "We wouldn't swap him for anyone in the tournament in terms of No. 9s", Southgate said.

He said his third goal, which came from a Ruben Loftus-Cheek shot that deflected off the English captain's heel into the net, "was one of the luckiest of my career".

The 24-year-old has made no secret of his desire to establish his reputation alongside players such as Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at this tournament.

England's win means the Three Lions will go toe-to-toe with Belgium to decide who tops Group G. Both sides may be tempted to rest a few players for the final game.

"There are a lot of good players just behind me".

"If it's going to be 10-0 and Raheem Sterling doesn't score, then he's got selection issues", said Barrie. England were dominant throughout, breaking through Panama's defence easily.

England took the lead in the eighth minute when John Stones powered home a header from a Kieran Trippier corner, held up by the referee because of wrestling and pushing by the Panamanians, something which was set to become a theme of the match.

"We all know too well that more than half of Switzerland's population is German".

England could afford to ease up and preserve energy but it cost the team first place on goal difference.
