Harry Kane leads record-breaking England half in Panama demolition

England secures spot in World Cup round of 16 with win over Panama

It is also the first time since 1966 that England have scored four or more in a World Cup game, and the Three Lions' biggest ever victory in the tournament.

Southgate was speaking at the press conference after his England side thrashed minnows Panama 6-1 in their Group G game at Nizhny Novgorod Arena. Harry Kane with five goals to his credit is now the sole front-runner for the golden boot, ahead of Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo and Belgium's Romelu Lukaku who stand at four goals each to their credit. "You don't get many opportunities to play in a game like that for England".

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Robson said: "When I first saw Jesse Lingard I thought he would never make it at Manchester United".

Buoyed by their impressive performance and last minute victor against Tunisia on Monday the Three Lions produced a breathtaking first half display that saw John Stones score two headers, Harry Kane blast home a brace of penalties, and Jesse Lingard sore a stunning goal from outside of the area. Incidentally, he is the first player to have scored a brace and a hattrick in his two consecutive world cup outings, after Gary Lineker in 1985 World Cup finals.

"We were ruthless in front of goal", Southgate said.

Before, during and after the match, England fans have been getting carried away and why the hell not.

England extended their lead from the penalty spot in the 22nd minute after Lingard was brought down in the box by two defenders. We want to keep momentum, we will have to think exactly about the team we want to put out against Belgium because there is an opportunity for players that need a match, but we also want to keep winning football matches. The way we played, the discipline, the hard work.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was the only England player to be booked, and with the fair play ranking a strong possibility to decide who tops the group, Southgate said he was "really pleased that we didn't get involved and come out with just that one yellow".

The party scenes on Saturday night were in marked contrast to Friday night, when few England fans had arrived in the city and Panama supporters created a carnival atmosphere.
