Sweden's first-round walkover and Cuba needing a replay to defeat Romania contributed to the lopsided result as Henry Andersson and Gustav Wetterstrom each scored hat tricks in the 16-team knockout tournament - Cuba's only appearance in the World Cup to date.

With five goals in two games in his World Cup debut, Kane is the leading scorer at this year's World Cup - one ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku.

Kane's treble and two goals from John Stones, with Jesse Lingard also on the scoresheet, meant England joined Belgium on six points at the top of Group G ahead of the match between the two teams on Thursday. With over 50% of the goals at this year's World Cup coming from set-pieces, proficiency, both offensively and defensively, would be a priceless commodity for any team. Even locals were supporting the team in Nizhny Novgorod, despite the bitter diplomatic relations between Russian Federation and Britain.

The Manchester United No.14 was brilliant in the 6-1 victory, winning a penalty and scoring a superb strike from distance to open his World Cup account. It wasn't Kane on the end this time but Stones, who was left unmarked to score his first global goal.

The fourth goal was the culmination of a well-worked free kick with Sterling's close-range header parried by goalkeeper Jaime Penedo.

Alli missed out on the match through injury but England certainly didn't miss him as they managed to destroy Panama 5-0 before the first half was even over.

Kane made it five just before the break after he had been wrestled to the ground.

Chasing the golden boot, Kane relied on his heel to complete his hat trick by getting the faintest of touches to divert Ruben Loftus-Cheek's shot into the net.

The England worldwide ended up being one of the Red Devils' key players last season under Jose Mourinho as he broke into the first team and earned the trust of the Portuguese coach.

"Confidence-wise it was important that we were able to score goals".
