Tunisia coach rues influence of

England kicked off their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign with a dramatic late win as Harry Kane proved the difference against Tunisia on Monday night.

That was how it stayed as England struggled to break down the resilient north Africans, before they finally found a way through the massed defensive ranks when Kane swivelled to head home in added time.

"It's massive. I am so proud of the lads".

England soccer fans and a top British diplomat paid tribute to those who died in the Battle of Stalingrad during World War Two on Monday in a moving ceremony ahead of England's match against Tunisia, a gesture London hopes may help salve battered ties.

He said: "Obviously Russian soldiers that were killed in the great battle - it means a lot to them, it means a lot to us".

"Hopefully we can go there and play with a freedom that other England teams haven't had". We had a lot of bug spray on and that was important.

Steve McManaman believes England must move on from "dire" performances in previous World Cups in their opener against Tunisia.

England came to Russian Federation determined to put behind them the disappointment of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil when they failed to win a game and went out at the first hurdle.

"I've seen a couple of them and they make me look a bit chubby if I'm totally honest with you". "Winning the first game is always massive".

Kane headed a 91st-minute victor to follow his opening goal as Gareth Southgate's side edged to a 2-1 Group G success in Volgograd.

"Tunisia will want to put an upset on the cards but we won't underestimate them because we know they're a good team. What pleased me was that we kept the control and composure", he told reporters.

"We had total control of the game in the second half and we stayed patient".
