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.

Former England worldwide Gary Neville has lavished praise on striker Harry Kane after his hat-trick in the World Cup on Sunday.

The rout was the first time England have scored more than four goals at a World Cup finals since winning the tournament in 1966. It also eliminated Tunisia.

The winners of the meeting in Kaliningrad are guaranteed to top the group, but if the match finishes as a draw the places will be decided first of all on Fair Play.

The Tottenham striker bagged his third after a 61st minute shot by Ruben Loftus-Cheek hit his foot and bounced over Panama goalkeeper Jaime Penedo.

The 6-1 scoreline was matched at [280.0] in the Correct Score 2 market, and England, with an equal goal difference to Belgium, can now be backed at [1.7] to win Group G (Belgium [2.3]).

"We wouldn't swap him for anyone in the tournament in terms of No9s", Southgate said afterwards.

And while they posses prodigious talent in their ranks, Martinez's men struggled to break down a resilient Panama for 50 minutes in their opening group match, as it required a Dries Mertens' masterclass to open proceedings early in the second-half. We had fun out there as well, which is important.

But in truth, it was a humbling experience for Panama against a side known to get nervous and slip up against less illustrious rivals on the big stage. "What we did was to try to avoid a bigger catastrophe in the second half".

It's a World Cup and everyone is fighting for their lives.

Wayne Rooney stands alone with the global goalscoring record after he netted 53 times throughout his worldwide career, but already the 24-year-old has 18 and is eyeing the record.

Southgate's task now will be to keep his young charges' grounded, and guard against complacency whomever they face next from Group H's quartet of Japan, Senegal, Poland and Colombia.
