  • England secures spot in World Cup round of 16 with win over Panama

Brigid Simmonds, the Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said the World Cup had provided a welcome boost to the industry.

Kane scored a hat-trick - becoming only the third England player to do so at a World Cup - as Gareth Southgate's side romped to the last 16 with a 6-1 win in Nizhny Novgorod. The last Englishman to achieve this feat was the Legendary Gary Lineker in the year 1986.

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard started and scored for England in their second match in the World Cup which came against the physical Panama. The goal was an example of Kane's precision and clinical acumen.

The first penalty was, remarkably, the first England have scored in open play at a World Cup since 2002, when David Beckham netted against Argentina.

England fans have been reacting with glee and surprise as the national team thrashed Panama 6-1 in the World Cup.

"We were ruthless in front of goal", Southgate said.

"It's incredible, I'm extremely proud".

The 24-year-old has made no secret of his desire to establish his reputation alongside players such as Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at this tournament.

Well, no more for England but Panama's Felipe Baloy, 37, fancied a bit of history for himself, scoring the nation's first ever goal at a World Cup finals.

"He was small, he was light and he didn't show enough to make me believe he could be anything more than a squad player".

Ahead of their meeting on Thursday to decide who tops Group G, England and Belgium are level on points, goal difference and goals scored.

From there Belgium went on to win the match comfortably, but it certainly was not routine for the side, and numerous Belgium faithful remain unconvinced by manager Martinez, though Lampard believes if he can get his tactics right, then they will be a real threat this summer.

We suggest skipping the midnight matches as Group A comes to a close when Uruguay play Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia take on Egypt, given who progresses out of that pool is already decided.

The party scenes on Saturday night were in marked contrast to Friday night, when few England fans had arrived in the city and Panama supporters created a carnival atmosphere.
