Neville said on ITV Sport: "With five minutes to go I was anxious thinking deja vu, thinking getting on that plane tonight those young players with only two who have started in a World Cup, waking up in the morning to what wouldn't have been negative media, but an anxiety and nervousness".

Showing he is better on the receiving end of set pieces, the Tottenham marksman provides the main attacking outlet for England and his natural goal-scoring prowess will be an invaluable asset for Gareth Southgate, further into the tournament should England progress.

England avoided an early stumble at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation on Monday, turning what looked appeared to be a draw against Tunisia in Group G into three points. Even in the second half when you could see the energy seeping out of their bodies, they totally controlled the match.

"It will improve with time because there are some decisions - like the ones you said - where they have to at least check whether or not it's a penalty".

Harry Kane scored a dramatic stoppage-time victor as England beat Tunisia 2-1 in Volgograd.

"The important thing was always the three points, but it was good that, especially in the first half, we got the performance we were looking for".

Lewandosky reveals why Poland lost to Senegal

On this occasion, Tunisia were mere minutes away from a famous draw, but it ended with captain Kane producing the goods when it mattered. It's a reputation that's tarnished them - somewhat unduly - over the years, but if ever there was a time to lean back on those "virtues" this was it. More seriously, Maaloul would like his "Eagles of Carthage" to cut Alli off from his Spurs companion and England team captain, striker Harry Kane. He found himself more isolated against three physical centre-backs, muscled out too often by Dylan Bronn, a right-back from Gent, Syam Ben Youssef, a regular at Kasimpasa in Turkey, or Yassine Meriah, who has played his entire career in his native Tunisia. There was no creativity and the goalie never made a save in the second half. We've got a great bond off the pitch so it's great to see it on the pitch.

"We might have been a bit disappointed by that [decisions]", Man of the Match Kane told a news conference.

"We are proud of each other", Kane said. "The first game is the one to win". We got what we deserve in the end.

"You would expect us all to be happy and buzzing, which we were". Above all, England have to find a way of getting Kane involved more, but now they can celebrate.

"He scored the two goals, but he brings more to the team than that".
