Carragher: Rashford should replace Sterling for Panama game

There were scenes of unrivalled joy across the country as Harry Kane popped up with an injury-time victor against Tunisia last night.

Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane spoke to reporters in the aftermath of the Three Lion's 2-1 win over Tunisia on Monday night, and shared what Mauricio Pochettino texted him after his match-winning exploits in Russian Federation, as quoted by the Daily Star. Can they handle them on the biggest stage?

"He sent a lot of love hearts and said: 'Come on England!' He is rooting for me".

We were all fairly new to each other in that tournament and now we've managed to build relationships and the team really is a team now.

'Ronaldo is the best in the world, up there with Messi, but the challenge is there to be with them.

"I want to prove a point in major tournaments". "We have been watching a lot of the big teams so far, including the Portugal match with Spain".

"It's true England controlled the match, but we defended ourselves very well for 90 minutes. As with everything it needs improving and I think it will improve in time".

"Poch texted me after the game".

"In 1990 when we did well and got to the semi-finals of the World Cup, we had Gary Lineker as well as a world-class player like Gazza (Paul Gascoigne)".

Kohli responded to Kane on Twitter by thanking the England striker and also congratulating him for his strike against Germany that led England to a 3-2 comeback win in Berlin.

Kane's confidence will be a boost to England boss Gareth Southgate, who has taken a vibrant but relatively inexperienced squad to Russian Federation.

Harry Maguire got a header on the end of a corner, glancing it towards the far post to Kane, who found the goal to give England the win.

He is England's most in-form player and was handed the captaincy ahead of the World Cup because his place in the starting XI is without question, simply because he has a track record of producing the goods.

England continue their Group G campaign against Panama on Sunday, before facing Belgium.

"To be the best player in the world you have to aim high and you can't aim low".

"We're one team over here and we know we've got quality all over the pitch".

The youngster is more of a poacher than anything else and poachers tend to do better in two striker formations so the Tottenham's striker's link-up play should help him tenfold. "They kept going, kept going to the last second".
