To take anything out of the game Southgate probably has to limit his ambition and play Jordan Henderson and Eric Dier together. "But I believe the best teams in the world have that belief in what they are doing and in the end they break teams down".

Harry Kane's injury-time header gave England a dramatic victory in Volgograd as fans from London to Volgograd watched Gareth Southgate's side kick off their World Cup campaign with a 2-1 win over Tunisia.

And it was a former Blade in Harry Maguire who headed the ball down to Kane from the corner to set up the iconic goal.

In the end, it all worked about as well as the first time Corden tried to help train David Beckham's England team seven years ago. "You have to stay ready for one opportunity and it can change the game".

Harry Kane has set himself the target of emulating Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on the biggest stage after kickstarting his World Cup career with the brace that secured England a winning start in Russian Federation.

"I wanted to make a mark at the World Cup", he said.

Asked about the flies in Volgograd, man of the match Kane said: "There were a lot more than we thought".

One potential concern for England could be the fitness of Deli Alli, who pulled up in the first half, but continued to play on until the 80th minute. I want to be up there with the best in the world and the only way to do that is to perform on the big stage and in the big moments.

Mr Nourse added: "I think we can get through the group and with England you never know after that".

Both Sterling and Alli are consistent goal scorers for their club teams, but neither can yet say they have made the step up at global level.
