England vs. Tunisia final score

Jordan Henderson completed the 90 minutes as England began their World Cup campaign with a dramatic 2-1 win over Tunisia in Volgograd on Monday evening. "It's part of the game", said the Spurs star, who became the first England player to score a World Cup brace since Gary Lineker in 1990.

Gareth Southgate's men continued to probe as the first-half progressed but Tunisia scored next after Kyle Walker fouled inside the penalty area.

Kane opened the scoring in the 11th minute - his first goal at a major global tournament - but Gareth Southgate's side were pegged back towards the end of the first half by Ferjani Sassi's penalty.

Ferjani Sassi and Yassine Meriah were the two Tunisian players to bundle Kane to the ground on two separate occasions, although neither earned a reaction from referee Roldan. We've done a lot of work on the training field and playing last we have seen a lot of games, so we've all been itching to play and it was tough.

"It goes to 1-1, momentum changes a bit, so I thought we recovered well from that", he said. It was this same hesitance to clear the ball which caused them the game. Good teams score late goals - if you dominate the ball like that the opposition tire.

"We can't get carried away". The skipper's two goals in Volgograd not only put him right up there with the best forwards on show in Russian Federation so far but he also changed English perceptions of the tournament in a heartbeat with his injury-time victor.

Panama, who lost 3-0 to Belgium in Group G's other match, are next in line and, ranked 55th in the world, Southgate's charges are widely expected to pick up another three points on Sunday.
