Skipper Kane gave England the lead in the 11th minute but Ferjani Sassi converted a penalty to pull Tunisia level in the 35th minute. However, the Tottenham centre-forward headed home off a corner in the 90+1st minute to give England the winning goal and help his side defeat Tunisia 2-1 in their Group G opener at the Volgograd Arena.
The North African side had survived an early onslaught and punched above their weight to counter a talented and youthful English team, playing in a 3-4-2-1 formation. Towards the end, Tunisia thought a draw was a fair result and decided to keep it that way until Kane brought out his second strike in the second-half injury time.
And as soon as Kane’s back post header hit the net, limbs and pints of beer went flying in the air all the way from Volgograd to Leeds.
